Maison Louis Bernard, today headquartered in Gigondas, was founded in 1976 in the heart of the Southern Rhône Valley. From Châteauneuf-du-Pape to Gigondas and estate-grown Côtes du Rhône from select Domaine partners, the winery offers a well-defined house style: fruity and concentrated, supple and well-rounded. Louis Bernard has earned its reputation for quality and consistency through close partnership with long-term growers that work with the winemakers to deliver premium fruit year after year.
Grenache and Syrah grapes making this wine come from both sides of the Rhone Valley. The wine is characterized by a good percentage of Syrah grapes. This gives the wine its profound color, specific nose and complex structure. The grapes are only harvested after tasting the berries to ensure optimal maturity.
