About this bottle

Cigalus Rouge is made from a blend of grapes grown following biodynamic principles. The Cigalus Estate is Gérard Bertrand’s home, and was the first of his estates to implement biodynamics.

After hand picking the grapes are put into separate tanks, with the syrah and carignan vinified as whole bunches while the other varieties are destemmed. Aging of each variety takes place separately for a minimum of 1 year in new oak barrels.

The final blend, which varies from vintage to vintage, takes place just before bottling. The wine is then kept in bottles for a minimum of 1 year before marketing.

  • Grape variety: syrah, merlot, caladoc, cabernet franc, grenache, cabernet sauvignon, carignan
  • Country: France
  • Region: Pays d’Oc
  • Bottle size: 750ml
  • Alcohol content: 15.5%

About the winery

The Gérard Bertrand group, with 15 wine estates, embodies a family passion for wine. The group embraces viticultural practices dedicated overall to a better future, with a strong focus on biodiversity. All estates are either in the process of becoming certified biodynamic, or already are.

Behind these highly regarded wines from the Languedoc region in the South of France, stand M. Bertrand’s qualities as a former professional rugby player: in particular, rigour, performance and excellence.
