Gerard Bertrand Cigalus Rouge IGP Aude Hauterive 2015

Winery Information:
One of the most dynamic and brilliant winemakers from the South of France, where he owns no less than seven estates among the most prestigious terroirs of Languedoc Roussillon, 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.

Viticulture:
Gérard Bertrand acquired the Cigalus estate in 1995. Here, sustainable development is taken to extremes, as all 60 hectares are managed in a biodynamic manner (Demeter certification), making Cigalus one of the largest estates of its kind in France. The yields of the 15-year old vines are strictly controlled (25hl/ha) by green harvesting and grapes are allowed to reach full maturity before eing picked. Optimal maturity, sort the grapes to ensure sanitary state and daily tasting of each parcel of land before picking the grapes.

Soil:
Very deep soils (sediments deposited by the Aussou, a stream at the edge of the estate) which store the winter rains for longer but which are less fertile due to the presence of a slightly chalky sandstone in the subsoil.

Vinification:
The grapes are picked by hand early October once they have reached optimum maturity (supple to the touch, the juice runs coloured, not clear, and the pips no longer taste bitter). The bunches are carefully placed whole in « cagettes » (very small wooden crates) to preserve their perfect condition and avoid any natural crushing. The grapes are destemmed, macerated on skin and vinified separately is the traditional way for 20 days at a controlled temperature. Once the malolactic fermentation is completed, the two varieties are blended and placed in 225 litre new French oak barrels for 12 months. This type of new barrel is selected especially to complement the characteristics of each vintage. Unfiltered, the wine is bottled and further bottle?aged prior to release

Tasting Note:
Intense ruby colour with a mahogany hue. Intense, complex and very aromatic nose; very ripe black fruit, jam, spice, liquorice and truffle. The palate is lush and rich with velvety tannins. The aromas of black fruit - blackberries, black cherries and plums - reappear and leading into mint. The finish is long with a perfect balance.

Every day serving suggestion:
To be opened one or two hours before serving at 16c.To be served with roasted meats, poultry with sauces or matured cheeses.
