Gérard Bertrand An 806 2017

Corbières, Languedoc, Sud de France, FranceA Bertrand GSM blend of grenache, syrah and mourvedre from the famed Corbières region is an overachiever for the price. Post-fermentation, it spends eight months in 225 litre barrels. The result is a delicious 2017 packed full of blackcurrants, black plums, and black cherries dusted with garrigue. The tannins are dense but fine-grained, and only add to the weight of the wine and its finish. Drinkable now with grilled meats or chicken. There is real value here. The 806 references the first traces of the Cathars who built the towering citadels that overlook the vineyard in Corbières.Tasted: 11 November 2021Tasted by: Prices:
