Buy Gerard Bertrand Coteaux du Languedoc Chateau La Sauvageonne Rose
A gentle, pale, radiant pink robe with the subtlestflashes of blue, evolving with age to reveal hints of orange. The nose is packed with intense red fruit aromas, including prominent blackcurrant and redcurrant, backed with floral notes (violet and rose) and hints of citrus (grapefruit). Delicate hints of wood expand to reveal undertones of vanilla and gingerbread. Fresh, enticing and velvety-smooth on the palate.

The Chateau la Sauvageonne is a legendary winemaking estate, where optimal sun exposure and an exceptional terroir combine to produce wines of distinctive character. The vines are planted in the northern reaches of the Herault departement, in the shadow of the Causse du Larzac limestone plateau. This region has its own unique micro-climate, with substantial temperature variations: the distance from the sea and proximity of the Causse provide a touch of freshness on summer nights, allowing the grapes to mature slowly and gradually.
Wine maker notes
The different varieties are harvested separately, by hand, once they have reached peak maturity. The vinification process is tailored to respect the individual characteristics of each variety, and capture the essence of our terroir. The grapes are de-stemmed, chilled to 8°C and pressed to extract the pink juices. Particular attention is devoted to this phase of the process, to ensure that we extract only the finest juices. The must is then allowed to settle, with the settling time determined by the aromatic properties the winemakers are seeking to emphasise. Fermentation lasts between two and four weeks, depending on the degree of clarification and the temperatures used.Half-way through fermentation, a certain proportion of the must is transferred to for 6 months of maturing over fine lees in 225-litre oak barrels, with regular stirring. Finally, after a gentle fining process, the wine is bottled relatively early in order to preserve its fresh, fruity character.

Producer
From the discovery of the Tautavel man to the Roman hegemony in Narbonne, via the Visigoth occupation and the Cathar heresy, Languedoc-Roussillon’s past is steeped in rich history. At the beginning of the 20th Century, a phylloxera epidemic, coupled with overproduction and widespread fraud, wrought havoc for winegrowers, who subsequently decided to revolt. Since the 1950s the wines of the Languedoc have become increasingly refined, and the best estates now produce wines of truly exceptional quality. Gerard Bertrand is determined to drive this progress even further, through continued innovation and by creating internationally-renowned appellations and wines.
