The Languedoc in pictures

The following day we were treated to a masterclass on 14 of the top wines in Gerard Bertrand’s portfolio. Having taken the reins at his family wine company after his father died in 1987, over the last 30 years Bertrand has been building up his eponymous wine company into one of the most powerful players in the Languedoc.

During the masterclass, host Matthew Stubbs MW said he believes that the sleeping giant of the Languedoc is the “next classic wine region” of France.

“The region boasts a fantastic diversity of terroirs and great wines are being made across the Languedoc,” he said, adding, “Its profile is only going to rise, so my advice would be to buy the top wines from the region now, as they’re never going to be any cheaper”.
