Winemaker Notes

Deep red color with a tint of purple. Red berries and "garrigues" aromas, which is the name for those wild bushes such as thyme, laurel and rosemary. Supple and aromatic on the palate with a harmony between the nose and the mouth (sweet spices). Full and lively, this wine is elegant with soft tannins. "Les Garriguettes" reflects this unique Mediterranean terroir.

You won't be disappointed with this attractively priced Saint-Chinian. Floral and herbal, with strong scents of lavender, licorice, laurel and menthol all infusing the black cherry, currant and boysenberry center. Rich and concentrated with a texture like crushed velvet and fine but well-structured tannins. Hints of black pepper and bittersweet chocolate grace the close.

Do you love the south of France? Do you enjoy combining power with finesse, the 2009 Gerard Bertrand Saint Chinian is just the wine you have been looking for! Rich and deep, plays true-to-form; a bit rustic, yet clean and pure; chalky, with bright and racy red fruit flavors; some savory herbs check in at the side door; makes me want to chomp into a rosemary- infused rotisserie chicken. If you can get Mary's organic, then you will have a field day with this wine, yes! Syrah and Mourvedre never had it better.

Languedoc, France

Between Faugères and Minervois in the Languedoc region of France, this picturesque, mountainous region produces expressive red Rhône Blends. With scant rainfall and poor soil, the vines put their best energy into the fruit, resulting in these intense, characterful reds for which the region is famous. Featuring the Rhône varieties of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre, blended with Carignan and Cinsault, they are full-bodied yet fresh, with briary grip and an herbal savor which, laid atop cherry, berry and plum fruit, make them a fabulous pair for all grilled food.

With distinct soil types, elevations, and exposures, St-Chinian is an ancient, varied region in the midst of defining its terroirs. Two sub-appellations, St-Chinian-Berlou and St-Chinian-Roquebrun, were established in 2005, to recognize the excellence and uniqueness of their wines. Whites (blends of Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne and Rolle (Vermentino)) and rosés (Mourvèdre ) currently comprise only 11% of St-Chinian production, but should not be overlooked as they show a delicious collision of floral stone fruit with flinty, saline minerality.

With bold fruit flavors and accents of sweet spice, Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre form the base of the classic Rhône Red Blend, while Carignan, Cinsault and Counoise often come in to play. Though they originated from France’s southern Rhône Valley, with some creative interpretation, Rhône blends have also become popular in other countries. Somm Secret—Putting their own local spin on the Rhône Red Blend, those from Priorat often include Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In California, it is not uncommon to see Petite Sirah make an appearance.
