Gérard Bertrand hosts best six sommeliers in the world for summer solstice event

by Pieroth admin

Gérard Bertrand and his team are happy to have shared the 21. June (summer solstice in the northern hemisphere) with 6 best sommeliers in the world : Philippe Faure Brac (Rio 1992), Paolo Basso (Tokyo 2013), Piero Sattanino (Milan 1971), Andreas Larsson (Rhodes 2007) and Fabrice Sommier (Meilleur Ouvrier de France) together with Jon Arvid Rosengren, recently elected in Argentina, who was visiting the south of France for the first time.

This long day (and short night) was aiming at sharing our commitment to the revelation of the best terroirs in our region, qualitative excellence and expertise to biodynamics and respect for biodiversity.

We visited Château la Sauvageonne, domaine Cigalus, Château de Villemajou, La Forge, Château l'Hospitalet, Domaine de l'Aigle, Château de la Soujeole and had dinner in Clos d'Ora.

This memorable day is part of our High Image Accounts policy we are achieving worldwide, with your partnership in ‘Pays’.....

We thank you for your support in this process which will be successful thanks to your trust. Witness the reaction of our friends sommeliers, who were impressed by the quality of the wines tasted.

2014 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc has been recommended in the 2016 Wine Enthusiast Buying Guide, with a score of 90 points!

by Pieroth admin

2014 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc has been recommended in the 2016 Wine Enthusiast Buying Guide, with a score of 90 points! Enjoy chilled with summer salads, poultry and shellfish.

Colour / Appearance:

Pale straw with a bright clarity.
Aroma / Bouquet:
Displays lifted passionfruit, gooseberry and white currant fruit flavours, with notes of nettle, red capsicum and boxwood.
A medium bodied wine with a vibrant acidity. The intense fruit flavours persist on the lengthy clean, dry finish. Shows vibrant varietal aromas, making a powerful palate impression that is quintessential Marlborough.
We recommend drinking while young and fresh, however the wine is capable of developing nicely over the next three to five years if carefully cellared.
Food Match:
A perfect accompaniment to summer salads, poultry and shellfish, such as Marlborough’s famous green-lipped mussels. Also try with lobster and white fish.
Serve: Lightly chilled.
Alcohol: 13.0%
Residual Sugar: 3.3 g/L
Acidity: 6.8 g/L
pH: 3.21
Harvest Date:
24th March – 14th April 2014
Grape Growing:
Vines are trained to three or four canes on a vertical trellis. Balanced pruning, shoot thinning, tucking and trimming are used to achieve an open, healthy canopy and clean fruit.
The season started with an early budburst due to a warm winter. A warm, dry spring and early summer resulted in ideal growing conditions and healthy yields. Mid-season rain spells aided plant growth and canopy vigour. Some cooler weather over January was followed by a warm, dry ripening period.
The fruit was machine harvested in cool evening conditions and pressed immediately with minimal skin contact. After settling, the clear juice was fermented at very low temperatures with selected yeast strains to preserve the inherent varietal flavours. The wine was fermented entirely in stainless steel.
Winemaker: Sam Smail and Diana Katardzhieva
