Gerard Bertrand Terroir Fitou 2013
|Region||France, Languedoc-Roussillon, Fitou|
A deep, concentrated red colour. The first impression on the nose is one of complex aromas of jammy red fruit followed by notes of raspberry and prune from the carefully controlled extraction during vinification and from the exceptional ripeness of the grapes. Its full, fat body and its silky tannins contribute to its superb elegance. On the palate, the powerful flavour is backed by a lovely bouquet of aromas mingling notes of very ripe fruit with touches of leather and under-wood.
Features a pleasant creaminess, with plenty of dark fruit flavors, matched with mocha, mineral and spice accents. Supple tannins and solid acidity provide structure. Offers a spicy, fruity finish. Drink now through 2018. 12,000 cases made.
