Gerard Bertrand 2018/19 Cigalus Rouge
93 Points Decanter

A delightful wine that’s simply delicious, Cigalus Rouge straddles the line between France and California. It’s ripe, opulent and hedonistic, but there’s also an undercurrent of minerality and some lovely savoury notes that bring balance.

“An accomplished Corbieres blend from top Languedoc winemaker (and former French national rugby player) Gérard Bertrand. Appealing and intense aromas of fruits of the forest and black cherry edged in garrigue. Deep, velvety and well-balanced palate, which has a sun-kissed feel with layers of ripe blackcurrant, cherries and plums, dried herb savouriness and soft fine tannins.”
-Decanter Magazine

Intense ruby colour with a mahogany hue. First, the bouquet shouts concentrated, very ripe black fruit. After a little time in the glass, more complexity with grilled spice and toasted oak unfolds. The palate is lush and opulent with velvety tannins. The aromas of black fruit -blackberries, black cherries, and plums – reappear with a complex empyreumatic web leading into mint. The finish is long with a perfect balance.

The Gérard Bertrand Group is the spearhead of a viticulture committed to a better future led by its founder, the eponymous winemaker. Known for his great talent as an assembler as well as for his audacity and creativity, he and his teams work to make wines from the south of France shine all over the world.
