Syrah Carignan
  • Cuvée tribute to the father of Gérard Bertrand who adored this plot of old Carignan, some vines of which are over 100 years old
  • The name Forge comes from the cadastre, on the plot are all the elements necessary for forging: wood for the fire and water to cool the metal
  • With great fullness, the palate reveals powerful and elegant aromas, reminiscent of "jammy" red fruits. It is a very great wine with a high aging potential (20 years)

    Dress

    Dark ripe cherry color


    Nose

    The nose reveals fragrances of wild strawberries, liquorice and cloves.


    Blocked

    The attack reveals a total balance between fruits and spices. A touch of salinity prolongs the acidity in the mouth and suggests immense aging potential. Total coherence and richness on the finish, where all the aromatic nuances of cherries stand out (fruit, tart, jam, stone) on a horizon of cocoa, toasted almonds and gingerbread.

    Winemaking

    La Forge was Georges Bertrand's favorite plot, home to century-old Carignan and old Syrah vines. From his first harvest, crunching the grapes, walking the rows with his father, Gérard Bertrand had felt the quality of skin and tannins that the age of the vines gives to the grapes that come from them. Alongside his father, he learned the quest for excellence in attention to a thousand and one details. “If you want to draw a straight furrow, hook your plow to a star” (Guy de la Rigaudie). This is Gérard Bertrand's quest to continue the work started by his father. “La Forge is the true alchemy of grapes and terroir and everything I know today. It is unlike any other and reveals the personality of Georges Bertrand. »
