    Clos du Temple

    About Clos du Temple

    Named for an ancient temple which once sat atop this tiny site of unique terroir, Clos du Temple is a ground-breaking project in Cabrières, the heart of the Languedoc region. The flagship winery of Gérard Bertrand, a proprietor of near-unrivalled ambition and owner of the world’s largest number of hectares farmed entirely under biodynamic principles, it is one of the most meticulous and impressive examples of winemaking from vineyard to cellar in the entire South of France.

    The vineyard, tucked away amongst rolling hills and perched on deceptively steep gravel-limestone soils, is composed of 12 hectares split into 11 distinct plots each of which is tended to very specifically according to their needs. Each and every step from pruning to picking is completed by hand, with a team of mules employed in lieu of tractors to till the earth.

    Harvest always takes place plot-by-plot and as soon as the sun rises to maintain coolness in the fruit before vinification which both maximises freshness and allows the press to be extra gentle. Only free-run juices are selected for fermentation in utterly unique pyramid-shaped tanks (pictured below) at low temperatures before the wine is aged in new oak from Tronçais and Jupilles for six months on fine lees. Impossibly small details at each stage of the process combine to form a very special end product.

    Gerard Bertrand Clos du Temple 2021 (1x150cl)

    Composed of what is essentially a field blend given the age of some of these plots, Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Viognier all play their part in a symphony of ripe fruit, lifted florals and spicy savoury notes. This is very far from the common perception of rosé, with the complexity and aging potential of a truly great white wine.

     

    Naturally, the relentless quest for perfection does not end in the winery, and Clos du Temple is presented in one of the most beautiful bottles available today. Perfectly clear glass is shaped in an elegant square which tapers to a point, mirroring the tanks in which it is fermented. The gold etchings around the bottle’s shoulder depict the contours of the hills surrounding this tiny and exclusive vineyard.
