Gerard Bertrand Côtes des Roses 2018 rosé

Gerard Bertrand Côtes des Roses

Gerard Bertrand’s ‘Côtes des Roses’ rosé has become a reliable ‘go-to’ wine and coming from the Languedoc, it is a good value alternative to the popular Provence wines. It is certainly evocative of the South of France with that classic regional blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah. That gorgeous bottle is very distinctive too. 

In the glass, the strawberry, raspberry and red currant fruit aromas take on a floral appeal on the palate.  As a fresh, crisp dry rosé, it has a texture like cool silk over plush ripe fruit. It is a fuller and riper mouthful that is an easy choice for lunch or a long afternoon with friends.

About that bottle… the Gerard Bertrand Côtes des Roses range has been designed to be seen upside down, so when you are finished, check out the rose on the base. It gives a whole new meaning to a bunch of roses!
