A blend of Syrah(by far my most favourite grape)and Carignan. This unassuming blend is delicious and an easy sipper. It's almost inky black with hints of dark fruits. Ripe and luscious on the palate with reasonably smooth tannins. The finish though not especially long embraces. Another very reasonably priced wine from the Languedoc Rousillion

I had just started at Premier Wine & Spirits in Halifax and had very little experience with wine outside of the fact that I knew I liked it and I knew I wanted to know more about it! This bottle in particular used to jump out at me as I dusted through the French wines. The red bolded cross and creamy textured labels looked as if they had been placed there by 14th century monks. Well, after having looked at this bottle for about a month it was time to give it a go.
Minervois, France… I used to try to practice my accents when saying the regions. It was tart but had a juicy black cherry undertone with playful flicks of cinnamon and cloves. I enjoyed this slightly rustic old world bottle. It made me feel like I had been sitting between old church ruins on the French country side, almost a little dusty.
I have to say this is the bottle that made me fall in love with wines from the South of France and their simplicities. A beautiful wine, it would make for a wonderful accompaniment to roast duck or lamb and rosemary. Yum!

Gérard Bertrand Syrah Grenache 2010, A.P., Minervois, Midi, France: Full-bodied with attractive wild tart cherry aromas and cedar brush. Tasty and full-bodied. Lovely mixed spices and smoke on the finish. Perfect for potluck gatherings and dinner parties. Great price. Will benefit from 2 hours decanting before drinking. Try it with hearty meat dishes.
