Gérard Bertrand Grand Terroir Tautavel 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Gérard Bertrand is a winner in every sense: We were named European Winery of the Year in 2012, the 2008 Grand Terroir Tautavel received 90 pts. from Wine Spectator. Tautavel, which means the Cradle of Humanity, is a wine from the Côtes du Roussillon Villages appellation at the heart of the vineyards of the South of France, situated inland from Perpignan in the foothills of the Pyrenees. Gérard Bertrand has built an exclusive partnership with the wine growers of this appellation to produce this must-have wine. It offers the essence of blueberry, displaying touches of spicy elegance and a luscious mouthfeel. Very pure and well-structured, with a long, cocoa powder-infused finish. Drink through 2018.

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.

Rich, deep, ripe berry flavors with soft tannin and a leathery finish. Received as a gift but would definitely buy again in the $15 range. Would be great with a steak.

A wonderful bouquet of ripe fruits (blackcurrants, blackberries), crystallized fruit and spices. The wine offers depth on the palate and a pleasant sweet finish with long tannins and light spices.
