Rather stemmy on the nose with blooming aromas of wild black cherry jam, licorice and violet candies, slight root vegetable notes and a deep medicinal vein. This enters the mouth with a light touch, though there are noticeable tannins here offering early mouthgrab. The flavors are fairly intense, lightly fruity and dominated by stony mineral notes and sweet root vegetable flavors with a finish that is moderately long and brisk with plenty of dusty tannins and flavors of charcoal and old wood accenting the fading red berry fruit. 85pts

Smells smokey and meaty, blackberries and cherries. Really nice flavor, complex.

Very nutty, like peanut butter. Better tasting than it smells, but a bit confusing with such a strong peanut flavor.

Awesome wine for a great price - Gentle flavours with room to grow - Blackcurrant flavours, medium-full bodied - maybe slightly tannic.

Nice red colour, a little opaque around the edges. Very grassy and mossy on the nose. Like freshly cut grass almost. The earthiness stays on the first tasting. However a little hot on the back a not a lot of fruit, although not necessarily a bad thing. Decent for the price.

The region of Picpoul de Pinet is one of the earliest civilised places on earth and has been a wine making area for over 2000 years. The village of Pinet is situated near Thau where the noble grape known as Piquepoule was first thought to be grown and which in turn gave the name to the wine known today as Picpoul de Pinet – a wine produced from the limestone soils of the Mediterranean and the celebrated southern French sun. Gérard Bertrand was named in 2012 as the "European Winery of the Year" by Wine Enthusiast and "Red Wine Maker of the Year" by the IWC. Grapes : 100% Picpoul de Pinet Region: France / Languedoc Roussillon Maker: Gérard Bertrand Notes : Pale yellow hew with intense aromas of exotic and citrus fruits, with hints of mineral, floral and vegetable notes. Fresh and aromatic, this great wine combines fresh aromas with fine structure and a very long finish. Serve : Best enjoyed young and served at 8°C with shell fish, grilled fish and other light Mediterranean salads. ABV : 13% Suitable for Vegetarians

Displays telltale notes of honeysuckle and ripe pear, with peach, orange blossom, and citrus overtones. This wine finishes in a crisp clean style.

Das Fruchtbouquet ist ausladend und intensiv: reife Birne, Pfirsich, Orangenblüten, Zitrusfrüchte. Im Gaumen offenbart sich eine frisch-fruchtige Struktur, die sich mit dem eleganten Körper vereint. Es ist ein gradliniger, fruchtiger Weisser, der gefällt und zu vielen Gelegenheiten passt.

Winemaker's Notes:

The average yield is 25 hecto liters per hectare. After “greenharvesting” in June, the grapes are picked in late September when they have reached perfect ripeness. The grapes are de-stemmed (separated from their stalks) and then placed inv ats to macerate for 10 to 15 days. The pumping-over and maturing process ensure that the “best” of the skins are extracted before pressing. Ageing takes place partly in 225-litre barrels, after which the wine is bottled.
