Our oenologists' opinion

Powerful bouquet

What a nice and beautiful wine is this garnet-colored wine that releases candied red fruits with smoked notes and a touch of mint. It is well-balanced and full-bodied, with a mineral touch and a finish featuring enveloped and smooth tannins.

Features

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.

    Brought in 1970 by the Bertrand family, the Villemajou domain is located in the hinterland at Boutenac, in the Corbières. The Gérard Bertrand wines are allying tradition and innovation around the most beautiful terroirs of the Languedoc Roussillon.
     

    • Terroir: The vineyard of the Château Laville Bertrou has been brought by Gérard Bertrand in 1997. It is located on the AOC Minervois La Livinière. Peaking at 230 meters, vines are located on soils made of marl. Associated with clay sandstone dating back to the Eocene epoch.
       
    • Viticulture: The Maison is looking to preserve its terroirs with a sustainable agriculture, organic and biodynamic. The labels and designations AB, Terra Vitis and Demeter reward those methods that respect the environment.
