Description

Listed at Auberge du Vieux Puits Ranked in the TOP10 of the Best Restaurants in the World
With more than 450 hectares among 6 estates cultivated with biodynamic farming methods, Gerard Bertrand is today one of the leader of biodynamic in the world. More than agricultural process, it's a real company philosophy for Gerard Bertrand who is concerned about environment protection for next generations.
 
Vineyard: The estate is committed to biodynamics for more than 10 years and obtained the Demeter certification in 2010. Cigalus is now a standard of the biodynamic wine of the region.
The red wine is a unique blend of 6 grape varieties : Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah, Carignan and Caladoc.
The Mediterranean influence of the area is reflected in the estate's name
Tasting Notes:Intense ruby colour with a mahogany hue. 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. 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.

Food Pairing: Perfect with roasted red meat, poultry "en sauce" or ripened cheese.
