What to expect


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 bio-dynamically tended to. It doesn’t get much better than this.

Fidele is a blanc de noir comprising of 100% juicy pinot noir sourced from Gautherot's carefully tended plots in the Cote des Bar. This is organic, biodynamic and natural winemaking at its best. You would be forgiven for thinking it was a rosé champagne as it has a rouge tint in the glass. Made without a scrap of dosage, fermented entirely in oak barrels and bottled at a lower bar of pressure at 4.5 bars, this is a wine first and a champagne second. This is a true connoisseurs champagne and an absolute cracker.

Crunchy red apple, red fruit, vinous and vibrant. This is an intriguing cuvee and one every champagne lover must try as part of their journey to become a true connoisseur.

Food Suggestion

This is a true connoisseur’s champagne where craftsmanship is key. The vineyards are located in the true south of Champagne in the Cote de Bar and are meticulously governed by cult winemaker Bertrand Gautherot. Gautherot, first and foremost makes a wine, the bubbles being incidental to what he is trying to achieve which is a wine that offers a sense of place. Almost all of the cuvees he produces are single vineyard (with the exception of Fidele) and single vintage. The wines have absolutely no dosage and are made at a lower bar of pressure resulting in finer bubbles and powerful vinous cuvees. Gautherots’ vineyards have been certified biodynamic since 1998 and his low yield, high intensity fruit translates to powerful wines that command food. Gautherot who was inspired by Jacques Selosse is one of the true legends of Champagne. These cuvees will provide much discussion at the dinner table so please read our tasting card that will arrive with your champagne before you present this wine to your guests - these wines are not for the feint of heart.
