BERGERIE DE LA BASTIDE, Béziers
Bergerie de la Bastide is a project led by professor of oenology Claude Serra. Claude is a firm believer of the virtues of terroirs, a fact usually ignored at this level in favour of fashionable grape varieties.
These are real wines, packed with a strong personality and Southern warmth and flavours.
Bergerie de la Bastide red is a savoury assemblage of Grenache, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The nose has typical southern flavours, stewed red berry, cranberry and red cherry mingling with thyme and rosemary. The palate is light and clean, it shows big amounts of ripe redcurrant and cassis ending with toothsome freshness.
