Cigalus Blanc: pioneer of biodynamics at Gérard Bertrand
Cigalus Blanc: Magnified in biodynamics
At Cigalus, the sweetness of life accompanies the cultivation of vines in harmony with nature.
Here, in the heart of the Corbières, on deep soil with an ideal composition, a mixture of sandstone and sand, promoting drainage, and clay, providing a great wealth of minerals and nutrients, the Chardonnay, Viognier and Sauvignon blanc vines benefit from a mild and sunny Mediterranean climate.
To this singular environment is added the meticulous work of the expert teams of the domain: harvesting by hand, separate vinification for each grape variety and aging in barrels contribute to the creation of a great white wine with incomparable character.
Cigalus blanc 2019 received a score of 91-93 points from the Robert Parker Wine Advocate guide. This score in two values signifies the aging potential of the wine and its ability to magnify over time, a character specific to great white wines of great complexity.
Labellized Demeter (biodynamic agriculture), this exceptional wine with very good aging potential reveals a golden and shiny robe.
With a complex nose of ripe fruit, its intense freshness and natural acidity whet the appetite.
The palate is silky, round and greedy, with a good length to prolong the pleasure of tasting.
This pure-tasting wine is best served at 10-12°C and goes wonderfully with seafood, cheese or light aperitifs.
