Our oenologists' opinion

Well-rounded

This wine of the Languedoc is a real ode to originality, being elaborated from varieties of Bordeaux, as the tasting demonstrates. Fragrances of blackcurrant are provided by the Cabernet Franc, and scents of ginger and black pepper, by the Merlot. In mouth, a round and supple tannic structure reveals a good balance, completed by notes of fresh spices and liquorice.

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.

Domain and appellation

  • Domaine Gérard Bertrand

    Purchased in 2012 by Gérard Bertrand, the Château de la Soujeole is located between Castelnaudary, Carcassone and Limoux. Around the most beautiful terroirs of the Languedoc Roussillon area, the Gérard Bertrand wines are characterized by tradition and innovation. With the will of unveiling the terroirs still unknown of the Languedoc, Gérard Bertrand throws itself to transform this Château into an unmissable property.
     

    • Terroir: The terroir made of sandstone is porous. Vines are planted on terraces and hills peaking at 440 meters on the slopes of the trapezian-shaped Malepère Mountain. Located at the crossroads of the Atlantic south-west and the Mediterranean south-west, the vineyard cultivate grape variety that are coming from Bordeaux and from the Languedoc at the same time.
       
    • Wine-making: Each grape variety and each plot are vinified separately. After a malolactic fermentation in tanks, wines are assembled and age then in barrels for 8 to 12 months.
