Overview

Vin de Pays d'Oc

Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah, Grenache, Carignan.

The Cigalus estate comprises 22 hectares planted with international varieties in the best area of the Pays d’Oc, now officially esignated the Grand d’Oc, since 1999, due to the high quality soil, hot Mediterranean climate and the resulting wines. The estate is dominated by a 19th century mas (large villa) where the wines are vinified and cellared.

The soil at Cigalus is clay and limestone and the vines are nurtured with biodynamics in order to produce the greatest expression of the terrain in the wines. In this way, Gerard Bertrand bridges the gap between the traditions of France’s oldest wine producing region with the modern style of the world’s most popular, international grape varieties.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Intense ruby colour with a mahogany hue.

Aroma

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.

Palate

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.

Serving

To be opened one or two hours.
