Gerard Bertrand Languedoc 2015
A deep red color with flashes of violet. The nose reveals complex aromas of small red and black fruit. On the palate, this blend blossoms into complex aromas of ripe red fruit, backed by notes of licorice, gingerbread and scrubland. A full-bodied wine with lots of finesse enhanced by mellow tannins. The finish of this powerful wine is particularly lively, enhancing its excellent length on the palate, ending with touches of roasted coffee and peppery spices.

|A smoking value from Gerard Bertrand (who’s portfolio is loaded with impressive wines), the 2015 Languedoc Terroir is mostly Syrah, with 31% Grenache, that was completely destemmed and aged partially in Bordeaux barrels. Its saturated purple color is followed by a ripe, modern-style, creamy Languedoc that offers loads of cassis, licorice and smoked herbs. Drink this Old-World fruit bomb over the coming 2-3 years.|
