Reviews and Ratings
|Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
This is a terrific offering from Bertrand. I love the crushed rock and graphite profiles of wines from Saint Chinian. There's lots of blackberry, cherry and fruit pit at its core; along with herbs and dried flowers on the finish. It's slightly smoky. 92 Points.
|Courtney Flood rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Very spicy on the nose and a touch floral - almost like a Szechuan peppercorn. Tons of intense fruit - Fig, blackberry, currant, and a bit of smokey savoury leather. Excellent value on this wine from the south of France.
|Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
An elegant and intricate bouquet showing light plum, stewed strawberries, toasted hazelnuts and light whispers of smoke. Flavours show crisp strawberry leaves, soft cherry compote and rocky stoney minerals. Very well balanced all the way through, balanced acidity, body and tannins. Pair with pork tenderloin and medium bodied cheeses. 89 points - tasted May 6, 2018
|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Big and inky, with great concentration. Accessibly priced, full bodied, red and black berry fruit. Tasted 2015 vintage, decanted 2 h, Nov 2017. Paired well with braised beef. 89 points.
|Emilie Ryan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Versatile! A good winter sipping wine or a good summer BBQ wine…
Presentation: The classic Gerard Bertrand look, easily recognizable
Appearance: Deep ruby
Nose: Medium nose with notes of red cherries, fennel, black pepper, with a hint of oak
Taste: Dry, medium body, medium-high acidity, medium tannins that have a bite the longer in the mouth the wine is, with notes of black pepper, dark fruit (cherries, plums), earth and wood
Finish: long, fruit and black pepper finish
Overall impression: This is an interesting, versatile wine. We can see this as sipping wine by the fire in the winter, and a good BBQ wine in the summer
|Simon Chen rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
compared side by side to their 2015 Syran/Grenache from Languedoc. This wine has more fruits, is more approachable, but less structure and finish. A great party wine that everyone will love and can pair easily with all kinds of food.
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Aromas include plum, blueberry, along with some smoky notes. Some peppery notes come through as well. Concentrated, ripe fruit flavours on the palate. Smooth, with subtle tannins. Enjoy with BBQ ribs or other grilled meats.
|Wineboy rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Loads of ripe fruit in a very pure style. A touch more residual sugar than one might expect from France.
|Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Dark ruby in colour with aromas of black cherry, black berry, black pepper and ink. It is full bodied with medium tannins and acidity and flavours of black cherries and spice. This will go well with grilled red meats or strong cheese. Tasted on May 6, 2018.
|From Saint Chinian in the Midi, Gérard Bertrand (2015) Syrah and Mourvèdre red blend is well-priced under $20. With smooth blackberry liqueur and ripe cherries on the nose, this dry, rich red blend is even more so smooth on the palate. Great effort and vintage from this producer with lots of blackberry, cherry herb, pepper spice and smoky flavours on the palate and a dried flowers on the finish Well-structured and perfect for grilled fare. - Community Wine Reviews|
