'Code Rouge' Cr̩mant de Limoux, G̩rard Bertrand

An enticing floral aroma with notes of pear and citrus, refreshing and vibrant on the palate.
A CrÌ©mant, made using the traditional Champagne method. The grapes were manually harvested and carefully transported in harvesting bins. The juice was very gently extracted using a pneumatic press, which allowed 30 to 40% of the press juice to be extracted without having to re-press. The juice was then allowed to settle prior to the alcoholic fermentation, which took place at a controlled temperature of 18å¡C. Meticulous blending of the various terroirs and grape varieties was then carried out, with bottling throughout January to encourage the secondary bottle fermentation. Aged on its fine lees for a minimum of three years, the Code Rouge was riddled and disgorged according to the Champagne method. This cuvÌ©e has all the traditional features of GÌ©rard Bertrand’s wines: the emblematic red colour of the bottle and the Alpha and Omega symbols, symbolising the endless cycle of nature which inspired its name ‘Brut Eternel’.
