A rose by any other name…how does that line from Romeo and Juliet go? Ok, well maybe that’s a bit dramatic, but this bottle has to be the most dramatic and beautiful wine bottle I’ve ever seen. So, how was the wine you ask?
The Cote Des Roses was a fantastic rosé wine we enjoyed today with our Easter brunch; light and fruity, yet full-flavored and what a keepsake bottle!
The website of Gerard Bertrand has this to say about it, “A wine which celebrates the Mediterranean Art de Vivre! Its originality extends to the rose-shaped bottle, designed by a young student of the Ecole Boulle. The wine is not to be outdone – it is big and fresh and fruity. A Languedoc appellation wine, it comes in red, rosé and white. Cote des Roses is the name of the coastal area near the typical village of Gruissan.
Brought up in the Languedoc vineyards, Gérard Bertrand is committed to sharing the characteristics and exceptional diversity of each of the terroirs of this region which produces sparkling wines, reds, whites, rosés, varietal wines or appellation wines. A rich array of promises to fulfill all tasting expectations.
Twenty years of know-how ensures that wines bearing Gérard Bertrand’s signature have a unique style whose creation is driven each day by four fundamental values: excellence, authenticity, conviviality and innovation.
As the Ambassador of the Mediterranean Art de Vivre, Gérard Bertrand loves to promote and share the cultural and gastronomic riches of the South of France by way of the numerous wine-tourism activities at Chateau l’Hospitalet.”
With a huge library of wines; organic, biodynamic, red, white, rose, sparkling, I think I’ll sit right here on this group of esteemed French wine estates and enjoy for a while.
