The Réserve Spéciale Cabernet Sauvignon by Gérard Bertrand presents itself in the glass in a dark cherry to purple with a reddish purple glow. The aromatic bouquet unfolds with the nuances of delicately sweet, ripe black and red currants, blueberries and plums. These fruit notes are accompanied by spicy hints, such as laurel, pepper, mocha and vanilla. Fine roasted notes and woody hints complement.
This southern French red wine is powerful on the palate and fleshy with concentrated fruit. This is in excellent balance with the matured tannins and the lively acidity. Spicy and full-bodied, this wine leads into an aromatic reverberation with dark chocolate, toast and vanilla.
Vinification for the Gérard Bertrand Réserve Spéciale Cabernet Sauvignon
For this Cabernet Sauvignon only the best, optimally matured grapes are hand-picked and destemmed.
They are then fermented over a period of 20-25 days at a controlled temperature of 28-30 °. The repeated pumping of the wines achieves the natural concentration of aromas and tannins. After completion of the alcoholic fermentation, this wine is removed from the mash and aged for about 10 months in wooden barrels. After bottling, the Réserve Spéciale Cabernet Sauvignon is refined for a further 3 months in the bottle.
