The various grape varieties are harvested separately when each of them is just at the right ripeness level. The winemaking process is managed to respect the specific characteristics of the grape varieties and the qualities of the soil. The grapes come from the best terroirs in Languedoc, Gérard Bertrand selected the best plots to create this wine. The grapes are de‐stemmed, cooled down to 47°F and transferred to the press to extract the rosé wine must. Particular attention is paid to the pressing to ensure that only the first, highest‐quality juice is kept. The juice is then left to settle according to the precise aromatic profile that is being targeted. Fermentation lasts between 15 and over 30 days, depending on the degree of clarification and the temperature. Finally, after light fining, the wine is bottled quite early to preserve the fresh, fruity character of the wines.
