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.
Textures - "This is the fifth release of Gautherot’s pinot blanc, fermented and aged in a mix of oak barrels and large, jar-shaped Georgian amphorae. It’s made from relatively young vines, planted between 1995 and 2000, and unusually, Gautherot ages this wine on its fine lees for about nine months together with a healthy amount of fresh grapes, in order to give it a greater depth of flavor.
This bottle was disgorged in September of 2019, and from the nose alone it’s immediately evident that this isn’t chardonnay: its aromas veer towards crab apple, guava, mangosteen and litchi peel, turning to stone fruit and exotic citrus on the palate. While it’s clearly ripe, even opulently so, it’s surprisingly delicate in body, demonstrating a notable grace and poise. This is excellent, full of personality, and it feels seamless in its harmony from beginning to end, finishing with plenty of aroma and length." Peter Liem
