As soon as they arrive at the winery, the grapes are immediately and delicately pressed in order to favour a very light colour. The first juices are run off and the presses are spread out to keep only the heart of the cuvée. The musts after pressing are settled statically in the cold for 48 to 72 hours to obtain a very limpid must and favour mineral expression. Alcoholic fermentation is carried out at temperatures of 15 and 18°C to favour the expression and freshness of the aromas. The wine is matured on its fine lees in stainless steel tanks for several weeks before bottling.

Gèrard Bertrand Prima Nature Chardonnay 2019

Dress: Bright, golden highlights

Nose: Notes of white flowers, citrus fruits

Mouth: Fresh, elegant, very well-balanced.

Food pairing: Serve at 12°C as an aperitif, with pasta with pesto and green vegetable risotto.

Origin: Southern France

Grape varietes: Chardonnay

Vinification: The work begins in the vineyard with a precise and meticulous selection of the plots most suited to produce this type of wine (90% of the final result is the result of this precision work): the sanitary state must be perfect, the foliage must be healthy, fresh and dense, the grapes must have an optimal level of maturity. Indeed, the picking window is very small as the acid/sugar balance is so important for this type of wine. The vinification is very complex because we do not use sulphur or oenological inputs. The grapes are immediately pressed and cold settled in order to favour a natural stabilisation of the oxidisable compounds in the must by precipitation. Then the alcoholic fermentation is rapid and takes place in a neutralized atmosphere. Fermentation temperatures are regulated at 18°C. The wine is clarified by racking before malolactic fermentation and is then racked again and kept cold. The wine is bottled early enough in the year to preserve the aromatic expression. Maturing is done in the bottle.

Gèrard Bertrand Prima Nature Merlot 2019

Dress: Deep red with garnet highlights

Nose: Red fruits, subtly spicy

Mouth: Round and fruity

Food pairing: Serve at 16°C with a risotto or vegetable wok.

Grape varieties: 100% Merlot

Origin: Southern France

Vinification: The work begins in the vineyard with a precise and meticulous selection of the plots most suitable for producing this type of wine (90% of the final result is the result of this precision work): the sanitary state must be perfect, the foliage must be healthy, fresh and dense, and the grapes must have an optimal level of maturity. Indeed, the picking window is very small, as the acid/sugar balance and the maturity of the tannins are so important for this type of wine. Red wine making is very traditional, except that we do not use SO2 or any other oenological input. The grapes are de-stemmed then the maceration phase lasts about 10 days during which we only work on the extraction by daily pumping over to encourage the expression of the fruit. Pressing takes place taking care to separate the presses, then the wines are racked in order to eliminate the coarsest lees before the malolactic fermentation. After the malolactic fermentation, the wines are racked again and then put in cold storage to guarantee their good stability in the vat.

Gèrard Bertrand Còte des Roses Chardonnay 2019

This vintage Cote des Roses celebrates theArt de Vivre Mediterranean. The soil, very varied, is essentially made up of hard limestone from the garrigues, schist soils but also gravel brought by the rivers of Languedoc. The climate, hot and windy ("semi-arid Mediterranean climate with mild winter variations") favours the ripening of the grapes and their good health, while keeping freshness thanks to the altitude and the effect of the sea, which mitigates the high summer temperatures. The bottle has a new rose-shaped bottom, created by a young designer from the Ecole Boulle. It's a wine that offers itself like a bouquet of roses!

Dress: Beautiful pale colour with slightly golden reflections.

Nose: The nose develops aromas of mango, dried fruit, almond and hazelnut as well as citrus fruit, grapefruit and orange blossom.

Mouth:Barrel ageing brings aromas of vanilla, cinnamon, fresh butter and spices. Its finish is marked by a beautiful minerality and a good length.

Grape varieties: 100% Chardonnay

Food pairing: To be enjoyed at 10°C as an aperitif or with shellfish or fish.

Origin: Southern France

Vinification: The grapes are harvested at perfect maturity, in order to express the optimal potential of the grape variety. A meticulous sorting of the harvest is carried out when the grapes are picked and received. Grapes are worked under neutral gas in order to minimise the risk of oxidation of the musts. The grapes are destemmed, cooled to 8°C and sent to the press to extract the must. Particular attention is paid to the pressing process in order to preserve only the first and best quality juices. The juices are then settled more or less according to the desired aromatic profile. Fermentation lasts between 15 and more than 30 days depending on the degree of clarification and temperature applied. Part of the wine is vinified and then matured in 225-litre Bordeaux barrels for about 4 months, while the rest is vinified in stainless steel vats thermo-regulated at low temperature to preserve the freshness and integrity of the aromas. The particularity of this grape variety lies in the nobility of its aromas and the delicacy of its wines. Finally, after a light fining, the wine is bottled quite early to preserve the fresh and fruity character of the wines.

The bottle has a new rose-shaped bottom, created by a young designer from the Ecole Boulle. It's a wine that offers itself like a bouquet of roses!

Particular attention is paid to the pressing process so as to preserve only the highest quality juice. The juices are then settled more or less according to the desired aromatic profile. Fermentation lasts between 15 and more than 30 days depending on the degree of clarification and temperature applied.

A 36-month maturing period on slats worthy of the best vintages, allowing a vibrant and creamy finish. Aromas of great complexity: subtle notes of red fruit and white flowers, accompanied by brioche and finely buttered flavour. The Ballerine cuvée pays tribute to the exacting standards and perfection sought by the star dancers.

The vinification and blending of Ballerine made mainly from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir give pride of place to the freshness and tension of this wine and connote the lightness of the ballerina.
