Gerard Bertrand Picpoul de Pinet ‘An 1618’

Wine: ‘An 1618’ Picpoul de Pinet

Producer: Gerard Bertrand

Country: France

Region: Languedoc-Roussillon

Vintage: 2020

Style: White

Blend: Picpoul Blanc 100%

ABV: 13%

Size: 75cl

 

Notes: Rich & enticing aromas of citrus & hawthorn lead to a zesty palate of lemony flavours & a live-wire acidity which keeps your taste buds tingling through to an invigorating finish. Possibly the perfect wine for fresh simple seafood or grilled fish.

The vineyard borders the Mediterranean Sea, where the oceanic influence tempers the warm Mediterranean climate. The vines are grown in a limestone soil, which coupled with the oceanic breeze produces fresh, elegant wines.

To reduce the risk of oxidation, the grapes were picked at a time when the temperature was at its coolest, either during the night or very early in the morning. They were taken into the cellars as quickly as possible & pressed immediately. The wine was aged on its fine lees, in stainless steel vats for approximately six months, giving the wine added depth & character.

Part of the ‘Héritage range’, Gérard Bertrand highlights the history & the expression of the terroirs of the South of France, by celebrating a date which has marked the history of the appellation. In 1618, the botanist Magnol named Piquepoul as one of the most famous grape varieties in Languedoc, in his book ‘Sylve Plantarium’.

 

Producer Info: Gérard Bertrand is one of the most outstanding winemakers in the South of France, where he owns numerous estates among the most prestigious crus of Languedoc Roussillon. Formerly the IWC Red Winemaker of the Year & Wine Enthusiast’s European Winery of the Year, he is known locally as the “King” of the Languedoc. Brought up in the Languedoc vineyards, Gérard Bertrand is committed to sharing the characteristics & exceptional diversity of each of the terroirs. 20 years of expertise ensures that wines bearing Gérard Bertrand’s signature have a unique style, driven by the fundamental values of excellence, authenticity, conviviality & innovation.
