Gerard Bertrand Corbieres 2010

Member Review by jtryka:

The wine is richly colored with deep garnet hues, and the nose is a pleasant combination of ripe berries, and something of a "twang" to it, perhaps some tart fruit to counterbalance the jammy sweetness that is also present. The taste is very fruit forward, with lovely notes of blackberry, ripe plum and vanilla that is just offset with a bit of tartness as well. Midpalate the fruit gives way to some tar and spice, a bit of black pepper notes. The finish is quite nice, very long and dry, supported by some supple tannins. I've found on this one that as you let it breathe, it really opens up quite nicely, so give it an hour or so if you can't decant it.

Gérard Bertrand:
Gerard Bertrand quickly developed a wine merchant business by selecting winemakers and estates that shared his sense of what was called for. In order to express his talent as a winemaker beyond his native appellation of the Corbières, he chose to invest in other wines of the Languedoc with strong potential.

Gerard Bertrand quickly developed a wine merchant business by selecting winemakers and estates that shared his sense of what was called for. In order to express his talent as a winemaker beyond his native appellation of the Corbières, he chose to invest in other wines of the Languedoc with strong potential. In 1994 he bought the Cigalus Vin de Pays d’Oc parcels, then three years later the 58 hectares of Château Laville-Bertrou in Minervois La Livinière. A forerunner in the Languedoc, Gerard Bertrand understood the evolution in consumer behavior towards expressive, well-balanced and elegant wines. By offering great wines at fair prices his success was immediate. The Prestige Wines of Gerard Bertrand quickly became the quality reference in the opinion of the professionals. In the footsteps of his father, Gerard has been contributing to the epic story of the Languedoc in these past years; he is the payee of the qualitative changes made to a good number of Languedoc terroirs and estates. He notably defends Boutenac as a terroirs and fights for its recognition by the INAO (Institut National des Appellations d’Origine). In return of his efforts, and as a proof of the quality of his wines, consumers quickly take up Gerard Bertrand’s wines and repeat it again … the development of his business acknowledges this success.

This 2010 blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre from Languedoc-Roussillon, France is good. Ruby color with a mid to tight rim variation. Fruit notes of blackberries, and black cherries with a hint of spice and vanilla. It has a long finish on the palette with low acidity. This wine has not peaked and will mature nicely over time (2018-2020). Best served chilled to 62 degrees, double decanted and served with a mid-rare beef dish.
