Vinification of the Extra Blanc of Gerard Bertrand
The balanced Extra Blanc from France is a cuvée, made from the grape varieties Grenache Blanc and Vermentino. After the hand harvest, the grapes arrive swiftly at the winery. Here they are selected and carefully crushed. Fermentation then takes place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. The vinification is followed by aging on the fine lees for several months before the wine is finally bottled.
