Gérard Bertrand 2019 An 806 Corbières

Corbières, Languedoc, France

This Southern French wine is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre ("GSM") which is a specialty of the Rhône Valley (think Châteauneuf du Pape). "An 806" is a historical reference to when the Cathars first lived in the region and built the many castles there. Following malolactic fermentation, eight months of aging occurs in 225 litre barrels. Notes of plum, cherry and earth give this wine a lively, rich taste, with medium tannin and a soft finish, representing great value. Drink it next year with grilled meat or pasta.
