Gerard Bertrand is passionate about the Mediterranean Art de Vivre and is a specialist producer of premium wines from the south of France. In his Reserve Speciale range he reveals the elegant, generous array of fruity flavours produced by the very best terroirs in the region. The exceptional terroirs of the Languedoc enjoy optimum sunshine and low rainfall, bringing out all the complexity of the regionís emblematic grape varieties and thus producing top-quality wines.

Tasting notes
The Viognier variety is known for its delicate feel and texture on the palate, rich and smooth. It is perfectly suited to the cooler terroirs on the untamed hillsides of the Pays díOc. It releases complex notes of peach, pear, tropical fruits and white flowers. This fresh and fruity 100% Viognier exhales notes of honeysuckle, ripe pear, peach, orange blossom and citrus fruits.

Wine maker notes
At the vineyard the yields are limited in order to concentrate the aromatic potential of the wine. The Viognier is a grape variety that needs to be harvested at full ripeness to express all its qualities and aromatic range. The grapes are pressed as soon as they reach the winery, then transferred to temperature-controlled stainless steel vats. After static settling under cold conditions, alcoholic fermentation is performed under temperature control in order to preserve the fruity aromas. To conserve the wineís freshness the malolactic fermentation process is halted. The wine is bottled then sold.
