Gérard Bertrand Terroir Corbières Grenache Syrah Mourvèdre

Gérard Bertrand Terroir Corbières Grenache Syrah Mourvèdre 2014

Corbières, Languedoc, South of France, FranceCorbières is the largest appellation in the South of France at 13,100 hectares and countless vineyards that stretch from the Mediterranean into the foothills of the Pyrenees. The team at Bertrand makes a strict selection of grapes to go into this 40/40/20 mix of grenache/ syrah/mourvèdre. All grapes are hand-picked. Carbonic maceration takes between 10 and 18 days for the syrah, while traditional maceration, with total destemming, is used for the grenache and mourvèdre. The wine is aged eight months in barriques before spending another six months at the winery in bottle before release. The nose is spicy and floral with rich blackberry jam flecked with orange peel and licorice. The tannins are dense but soft. The Bertrand fresh palate remains a constant. Ready to drink but will age easily for five years. Serve this with lamb chops.Tasted: 23 April 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 19.99 BCLS Producer: Gérard BertrandDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
