Heritage 1189 Pic Saint Loup by Gérard Bertrand reveals itself in the glass in a deep dark ruby to garnet red, unfolding its elegant and fruity-spicy bouquet. This is characterized by the aromas of ripe blackberries, blackcurrants, raspberries and plums. These fruit notes are underlined by licorice, black olives and a hint of cherry water.
On the palate, this red wine convinces with its wonderful mineral freshness on the palate and its fine, elegant tannins. A full-bodied cuvée that is excellently structured with fine nuances of smoke and spices transitions into a long finale.
Vinification for the Gérard Bertrand Pic Saint Loup
This cuvée is vinified 40% from Syrah and Mourvèdre and 20% from Grenache.
The grapes are harvested at the optimum ripening time and selected twice: once in the vineyard and in the winery. The grapes are then destemmed and macerated over a period of 3-4 weeks. The must is pressed before malolactic fermentation begins and then the Pic Saint Loup is aged in oak barrels for 9 months.
