Natalie's Score: 90/100

A rich, full-bodied southern French red wine that's a blend of Syrah and Grenache grapes. Incredibly juicy with fleshy ripe purple and black plums and the most seductive aromas of wild violets in the middle of a forest. A profusion for the senses. Pair with grilled lamb.

Syrah Grenache food pairings: venison medallions in red wine sauce and wild mushrooms, bison burgers, roast boar.

Reviews and Ratings

Greg Hughes rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This is a classic blend of Syrah and Grenache from the South of France. Though wines from this area show lots of hot climate chunkiness, this one is much more nuanced aromatically.
The colour is quite dark towards the centre - virtually opaque, with violet at the edge.
It needs time to breathe and soften. Pungent forest floor, dried herbs, mushroom, pepper, leather, and some red and black fruit after 20 minutes in a decanter.
Moderate alcohol, moderate oak. Lots of fruit emerge slowly. Cherry, bramble, cassis, and fig.
The name Montpellier might be recognizeable to some wine geeks as the location of one of the world's most famous viticultural institutes. IHEV, the Institute for Higher Education in Vine and Wine Sciences, is located in the vicinity of where this wine was produced.
Pair it with cassoulet, pepper steak rounds, or lamb.
Gérard Bertrand Grand Terroir Grès De Montpellier (2014) is a Syrah and Grenache red wine blend from the Languedoc's Grès De Montpellier. The grapes for this wine are grown just 15 kilometres from the Mediterranean coast on small, round gravels; 80% of the wine is aged in French oak barrels for about 12 months. - Community Wine Reviews
