The event took place at Provocateur on Monday, May 2nd , 2016. “Code Rouge” by Gérard Bertrand, award-winning winemaker from the South of France, is the new bubbly in Gérard’s wine portfolio and is poised to be the only red bottle of sparkling wine in the world and on the cusp of making a splash in America!
The event exclusively featured a range from the Gérard Bertrand wine portfolio – a selection of rosé wines, the organic and biodynamic wines, the estate wines and Baie des Perles, the new Pure Sauvignon Blanc wine in a bottle designed by Chantal Thomas. A musical performance by Bobbie Grei took place later in the evening, as she has been chosen as the face of Code Rouge.
This cuvée comes exclusively from terroirs located within the oceanic climates of Limoux. Code Rouge is an ode to excellence and a tribute to the world’s first sparkling wine, made by the monks of Saint Hilaire Abbey near Limoux. A Blanc de blancs made with Chardonnay, Chenin and Mauzac, this wine of great finesse and elegance typifies the terroir which nurtures it. This Cuvée has all the traditional features of Gérard Bertrand’s wines: the emblematic red color of the bottle and the Alpha and Omega symbols, symbolizing the endless cycle of nature which inspired its name Brut Eternel.
