Mainly Grenache with Cinsault and Syrah
Wine Enthusiast named his winery Europe’s best in 2011, but Gerard Bertrand began as a rugby player for France and Narbonne. It wasn’t until the early death of his father that he returned to take the reigns of the family operation, Domaine de Villemajou in Boutenac, Corbieres. He soon identified the potential of the Languedoc-Roussillon to produce rich yet bright, modern wines suited to world market trends and from there began acquiring labels and properties across the region. Balancing an organic and increasingly biodynamic viticulture with an evangelical zeal for exporting his Mediterranean ‘Art de Vivre’, Gerard Bertrand has quickly become one of the most important champions of that which epitomises Southern French wine of today: superb quality in quantity.
What The Critics Say
Winemaker notes on current vintage (2018 vintage)
"A soft, pale, brilliant pink with bluish tints developing over time towards more orangey nuances. The bouquet releases aromas of summer fruits, cassis and redcurrant. Floral notes of rose along with hints of grapefruit complete the picture. The finish is fresh, offering notes of candy. On the palate the impression is fresh and full, with great aromatic persistence and balance. Pairs well as an as an aperitif or with shellfish and subtly spiced dishes."
17/20 Jancisrobinson.com (2017 vintage)
"Tasted blind. Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault. Long-necked droplet-shaped bottle with a rose carved into the punt underneath. Pale powder-puff pink. Savoury, minerally, strawberry-chalk-dust style. White pepper! Bit of a bite. Lovely food rosé. Long structure and long draw and then elegant spice that pulls through and though. Powdered lemon zest. (TC)"
90/100 and Wine of the Week (June 18, 2018) Wine Spectator, Gillian Sciaretta (2017 vintage)
"Clean and fresh, with a delicate, balanced profile of white raspberry, cherry and lemon zest supported by lightly tangy acidity. Hints of mineral and herb show on the finish. A Provence-style rosé. Drink now."
