Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and well-rounded
The nose opens with woody notes, cocoa, then fresh spices. Aromas of candied black fruits. Concentration. Round, full-bodied attack, balance. Frank length on roasted plum, character on notes of liquorice, fresh spices, garrigues. Frank and persistent finish. Nice character
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.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Owner of 325 hectares of vineyards and partner with winegrowers and cooperatives in the region, Gérard Bertrand promises to develop the most beautiful parcels of the Sud de France vineyard.
Domain and appellation
Bought in 1970 by the Bertrand family, the Domaine de Villemajou is located in the hinterland of Boutenac in the Corbières. Gérard Bertrand's wines are based on some of the most beautiful terroirs in the Languedoc Roussillon region and are a blend of tradition and innovation.
Viticulture: This 130 hectare vineyard is planted mainly with Carignan and Syrah, with some plots over 100 years old. The house seeks to preserve its terroirs with sustainable, organic and biodynamic viticultural practices.
Vinification: On the one hand, the Carignan and Syrah are vinified as whole grapes in carbonic maceration, 10 to 18 days. On the other hand, the Grenache and Mourvèdre are vinified in traditional maceration after destemming, from 15 to 20 days. Finally, the wine is put in barrels for 10 to 12 months.
