Gérard Bertrand Orange Gold 2020 is a rich and fragrant blend of organically grown Chardonnay, White Grenache, Viognier, Marsanne, Mauzac, Muscat and is deep gold in the glass. So many aromas and flavours on this wine. We start with white and yellow florals on the nose, ripe peach, fresh apple and fragrant orange zest to wake up the senses, finishing long and zesty on a mineral note. There are light tannins on this wine. Orange Gold is made using an ancient winemaking technique whereby grapes are whole bunch vinified and fermented. Maceration is with stems and skins and gives this wine an iridescent orange-gold colour.

Orange Gold Organic White food pairings: bouillabaisse, pan-fried scallops in ginger and mandarin, duck a l'orange.

Reviews and Ratings

Alana L rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Orange Gold, Vin de France, 2020 / Organic, this blend of hand-picked Chardonnay, White Grenache, Viognier, Marsanne, Mauzac and Muscat grapes is vatted without any destemming or crushing, semi carbonic maceration and the pressed wine is blended in stainless steel tanks before completing the maceration in barrels. Super fresh for an orange wine, well balanced, light tannins, a light bitterness, orange with gold tints, it has an intense fruit nose (peaches galore, citrus, clementine, candied apple, stone fruit), a bit of vanilla and a full, round palate. Would be amazing with tapas, grilled calamari, spicy Asian dishes or hard cheeses.

A leader in organic and biodynamic viticulture and named ‘Green Personality of the Year’ in 2020 at the Drinks Business Green Awards (the world's largest competition aimed at raising awareness of environmental issues in the beverage industry and rewarding exemplary sustainability and environmental performance), Gérard Bertrand discovered his passion for wine at his family’s estate, Villemajou, in 1975, started running it in 1987 and created the Gérard Bertrand wine company in 2002 to showcase and develop wines in the Languedoc-Roussillon region in the South of France. The company now includes 16 châteaux, estates and wineries covering over 850 hectares cultivated using biodynamic methods in one or more of 6 levels of certification: conversion to organic agriculture; organic agriculture; no added sulphites; vegan; bee-friendly and Demeter-certified biodynamic. Guiding his philosophy is that these organic practices are not only an essential way to act for the planet and to ‘be the change’, but also that they allow the identity of the terroir and sense of place to shine through and for the wines to ‘taste of somewhere and not of something’!

Tasted as part of Gérard Bertrand’s virtual Organic French Wine festival.
