Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and well-rounded
Its straw color offers a nice slightly woody nose, of hazelnut and marzipan. On the palate, this wine is balanced, honest, round, full, quite full-bodied, ample and nervous with a good tension.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Domain and appellation
Domaine Gérard Bertrand
A domain of international prestige, Gérard Bertrand contributes to the glorification of the southern vineyards of France, the world's largest wine-growing area. Orbiting the finest terroirs of Languedoc Roussillon, the Gérard Bertrand wines are part of tradition and innovation.
- Terroir: The plots are located at the centre-north of the Hérault, backed by the Causse du Larzac reliefs. This climate zone experiences large temperature variations: the distance from the sea and the nearby Causse brings a certain freshness during summer nights which is beneficial to a slow and progressive maturation of the berries.
- Vinification: After pressing the grapes, the best juices are racked in the cold for a longer or shorter period depending on the desired flavour. Fermentations are carried out at controlled temperatures, from 2 weeks to 1 month, depending on the degree of clarification. The wine is then aged in barrels on fine lees with regular stirring for 6 months.
- Chardonnay : 100%
