Now we are getting serious. Are you ready to take your understanding of mainstream champagne and throw it out the window? Enter Vouette et Sorbee. The name say of the house says so much – Vouette et Sorbee are the names of two of his 6 parcels of fruit which are organically and biodynamically tended to. It doesn’t get much better than this.
Expect intensity, minerality with a nougat-like texture. Nutty in complexity combined with the warmth of stony yellow fruit and a long finish. If you love Grand Cru Chablis and champagne, this is the lovechild of these two wine styles.
Blanc de Argile is sourced from a small parcel of Chardonnay in Briaunes supplemented with scattered plantings of Chardonnay in Bertrand’s other lieux-dits. Established in 2000, with massale cuttings from Anselme Selosse and from Dauvissat's Valmur grand cru vineyard, this portion of the vineyard is now the origin of what Antonio Galloni calls "one of the most beautiful and distinctive wines in Champagne." The vines here yield only 15-20 hl/ha each year - one of the keys to the quality and intensity on offer.
