In the Héritage range, Gérard Bertrand highlights the history and the expression of the terroirs of the South of France, by celebrating a date which has marked the history of the appellation. Narbonne, the first Gallic Roman colony, was founded in 118AD and the wines of Narbonne have been exported all over Europe since these ancient times. The vines flourish in the Mediterranean climate, with long sunshine hours and a dry growing season, combined with the cooling influence from the nearby Mediterranean Sea, which results in concentrated fruit with naturally balanced freshness. The clay-limestone terroir allows for the perfect ripening of the berries and produces elegant wines with a naturally fresh profile.

The grapes were carefully sorted before being sent to the pneumatic press. After a light settling, the wines were fermented in temperature-controlled vats with a combination of wild and selected yeasts. The wine was matured for six months on fine lees with regular stirring of the lees imparting texture and complexity. Only the best vats were selected for the final blend for this cuvée.
