Vinification of Gérard Bertrand Heritage 806 Corbières
This cuvée is made from Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre vines. The grapes are picked by hand and then processed separately.
The Syrah grapes are macerated and fermented for a total of 10-18 days, Grenache and Mourvedre are traditionally fermented, meaning that they are completely de-stemmed and fermented on the mash. Until the end of malolactic fermentation, the wines remain in the tank.
Then the wines are combined to form this cuvée and matured in barriques for 8 months. After light fining, the Heritage 806 Corbières is bottled and refined in the bottle for a few months.
