Gerard Bertrand 6eme Sens Rouge
พันธุ์องุ่นผสม (Grape Blended)
The contrasted region of the Languedoc-Roussillon produces fruity wines which represent all the exceptional diversity of its terroirs. The foothills of the Corbières and of the Minervois, where the garrigue, bathed in sunshine, looks out over the blue of the Mediterranean, offer the ideal country for vine-growing. The is the birthplace of the 6èmeSens, carrying all the promise and the inimitable expression of the typical grape varieties of the South of France.
The 6èmeSens, the result of the alchemy of climate and soil, brings the perfect marriage of sight, touch, sense, smell and taste to whirl you away into the discovery of your own 6th sense.
VINIFICATION AND MATURING :
Coming up to harvest time, the berries are tasted each day for optimal ripeness, then harvested separately as they ripen.
The grape varieties are vinified separately, carbonic maceration being used for some of the Syrah to preserve the integrity of the aromas, while traditional maceration (destemmed harvest) is used for the rest of the Syrah, the Merlot and the Grenache. They are then vinified at controlled temperatures (max 25°C). Some of the wine is aged in wood and the rest in vats to preserve the fruity aromas.
