Presented in this VERY unique red bottle, it is sure to please the palate and be noticed from the moment the cork leaves the bottle!  A favorite in France, this delightful package has finally made it stateside and Uncorked is excited to offer this to our clients!

Winery Notes

The founding principles behind Gérard Bertrand's wines date back to 1992 with the creation of the enterprise. In fact, at the end of his rugby career, Gérard Bertrand decided to create a business reuniting the best winemakers of the Languedoc in order to give a new dimension to his own wine making activities.

Gerard Bertrand "Code Rouge" Brut Eternal NV Tasting Notes

Presented in a trendy red bottle, crystalline colour, fine bubbles.  The wine has a pale straw color with hints of green that reflect at the edge of the glass. The bubbles are tiny and very elegant. Its aromas are very fruity with a hint of biscuits, hazelnuts and flowers. This wine is elegantly balanced, complex and well-structured with a long and crisp mineral finish.
Blend: 70% Chardonnay; 20% Chenin; 10% Mauzac.
