Chardonnay Chenin Mauzac

Winemaker's note

This cuvée comes exclusively from terroirs located on the oceanic climates of Limoux. Code Rouge is an ode to excellence and a tribute to the First Brut of the World made by the Abbey of Saint Hilaire’s monks near Limoux. A Blanc de Blancs made from Chardonnay, Chenin and Mauzac, that offers an exceptional expression of the high-altitude terroir that gave birth to it, all in finesse and elegance. This Crémant bears all the codes of Gérard Bertrand wines: the emblematic red colour of its bottle and the Alpha and Omega symbols, evoking the ever-renewing cycle of nature that inspired its designation as Brut Eternel.

Winegrower's note

The harvest is manual, and the grapes are transported in tanks. A direct pressing is assured with a pneumatic press which allows an elimination of the juices of presses by extractions of 30 to 40% of this one without rebêchage. A very conscientious settling of the juice is carried out, then an alcoholic fermentation is executed at a controlled temperature of 18°C. A malolactic fermentation can be made depending on the vintage. A very precise blending of the various terroirs and grape varieties is carried out with a bottling in January to encourage the development of foam. The wine is aged on laths for a minimum of 12 months.

Dosage : 8.5g/L
