Warm, ripe, juicy Languedoc red with redcurrant, spices and a hint of subtle vanilla oak. Delicious, wonderfully smooth with a long-lasting finish.

This wine is made from Merlot and comes from the South of France.

The vineyard is owned by former French rugby star Gerard Bertrand. It is a warm and smooth wine, with juicy red fruit and sweet vanilla notes.

Producer Information

Gerard Bertrand is something of a phenomenon in the south of France. A local boy made good, he first hit the headlines as a professional rugby player for Stade Francais and the French national team. Whilst still playing, he inherited the family's wine business and has gradually built it up, acquiring vineyards and estates across the Languedoc. The jewel in the crown is Chateau L'Hospitalet, which he bought in 2002.

The estate is surrounded by 52ha of vines but in addition to a fully functioning winery it also comprises a hotel, restaurant and cellar door. Incredibly, it is the third most visited tourist attraction in the region. The top two are the old city in Carcassonne and an African themed safari park.

What is even more incredible is that despite the size of the business and the obvious commercial nous, the wines are outstanding.
