Winery: "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. The finish is fresh, offering notes of candy. On the palate the impression is fresh and full, with great aromatic persistence and balance.
Cote des Roses celebrates the Mediterranean lifestyle. The Languedoc appellation stretches along the Mediterranean coast from the Spanish border as far as the city of Nimes, along the foothills of the Montagne Noire and the Ceevennes. The soils are highly varied, mainly with hard limestone and schist, but also gravel transported by the rivers of the Languedoc region. The warm, windy climate (“semi-arid Mediterranean climate with mild winters”) helps the grapes to ripen in good, healthy condition, while retaining all their fresher qualities thanks to the altitude and the influence of the sea which eases the scorching summer heat. 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!"
Importer: "Here's one of the most compelling wines we've seen in a long time. We say "seen" because not only is what's inside the bottle luscious stuff, but the bottle itself is a striking design. The base has been shaped to look just like a rose in full bloom. It's really quite a sight. But back to the wine, this Languedoc Rose is exactly the kind of wine that this region is famous for. Gerard Bertrand is the owner of nine estates across the South of France. As a wine-grower and owner of flagship estates, he has acquired a unique expertise in the terroirs of Languedoc-Roussillon. The warm, windy climate helps the grapes to ripen fully, while retaining all their fresh qualities thanks to the altitude and the influence of the sea which eases the scorching summer heat. Bertrand sources perfectly balanced, beautifully ripe grapes; a blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah all destemmed and carefully pressed to extract the rose colored must. Vinification is in stainless steel at cool temperatures. The nose offers aromas of strawberry, red currants, citrus peel and hints of jasmine. The wine is refreshing and ripe on the palate with hints strawberry, grapefruit, cherry and chervil. A wonderful aperitif but rich enough to enjoy with seafood, veal and poultry. This rose by Bernard Bertrand comes from Southern France, the home of rose. It's exceptionally affordable while also being, expressive, nuanced, luscious and refreshing. A combination that's hard to beat. "
