Gerard Bertrand Cotes des Roses Languedoc 2022

This cuvée Cote des Roses celebrates the MediterraneanArt de Vivre . The soil, very varied, is essentially made up of hard limestone of the garrigues, schistose soils but also of gravel brought by the rivers of Languedoc. The climate, warm and windy (“semi-arid Mediterranean climate with mild winter variations”) favors the maturation of the grapes and their good health, while maintaining coolness thanks to the altitude and the effect of the sea, which attenuates the high summer temperatures. Its bottle is unique with a rose-shaped bottom, created by a young designer from the Ecole Boulle . It is a wine that is offered as a bouquet of Rose!

Winegrower’s note

Cote des Roses celebrates the Mediterranean lifestyle. The Languedoc appellation stretches along the Mediterranean coast. The soils are highly varied, mainly with hard limestone and
schist, but also gravel transported by the rivers of the Languedoc region.. The bottle is original with its base in the shape of a rose, created by a young designer from the Ecole Boulle. A wine to be given in the same way you would offer a bunch of roses!

Winemaker’s note

The various grape varieties are harvested separately when each of them is just at the right ripeness level. The winemaking process is managed to respect the specific characteristics of the grape varieties and the qualities of the soil. The grapes are harvested by machine with a built-in sorting system. The grapes are de-stemmed, cooled down to 8°C and transferred to the press to extract the rosé wine must. Particular attention is paid to the pressing to ensure that only the first, highest-quality juice is kept. The juice is then left to settle according to the precise aromatic profile that is being targeted. Fermentation lasts between 15 and over 30 days, depending on the degree of clarification and the temperature. Finally, after light fining, the wine is bottled quite early to preserve the fresh, fruity character of the wines.

Grape varieties

Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault

Tasting notes

The robe shows a soft, pale, brilliant pink with bluish tints developing over time towards more orangey nuances. The bouquet releases aromas of summer fruits, cassis and redcurrant. Floral notes of rose along with hints of grapefruit complete the picture. On taste, the finish is fresh, offering notes of candy. On the palate the impression is fresh and full, with great aromatic persistence and balance


This Languedoc is ideal at 50°F as an aperitif or with shellfish and subtly spiced dishes.
