Cigalus Blanc: precursor of biodynamic farming at Gérard Bertrand
Cigalus White : Magnified biodynamic
In Cigalus, the gentle way of life goes hand in hand with the cultivation of vines in harmony with nature.
Here, in the heart of the Corbières, on a deep soil with an ideal composition, a mixture of sandstone and sand, favouring 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.
This unique environment is complemented by the meticulous work of the estate's expert teams: hand-picking, separate vinification for each grape variety and barrel ageing all contribute to the creation of a grand vin white wine of incomparable character.
Cigalus Blanc 2019 has been awarded 91-93 points by the Robert Parker Wine Advocate. This two-value score signifies the wine's ageing potential and its ability to magnify over time, a characteristic of great white wines of great complexity.
This exceptional wine, with its excellent ageing potential, has a brilliant golden colour and is labelled Demeter (biodynamic agriculture).
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 that prolongs the pleasure of tasting.
This pure-tasting wine is best served at 10-12°C and is a perfect accompaniment to seafood, cheese or light aperitifs.
