From Sorbée, a site just up the slope from Vouette located on Portlandian soils. A peppery, and sappy style of Pinot Noir bathed in all the red fruit flavors one could want. A rare example of a true Saigné Rosé Champagne rather than a white base wine with a little still red wine blended in – hence the lurid, bright color and riot of red-berry flavors.

Vouette & Sorbée wasn’t necessarily Bertrand Gautherot’s plan when he took over his family’s vineyards in Buxières-sur-Acre. Initially he was going to farm his parcels conventionally and sell his grapes to large Champagne houses in the north. With an evolving respect for his terroir and concern for his young family, Bertrand set about declaring independence from the outdated echelle system and the negative pressure it places on growers. Inspired by friends Jérôme Prévost and Pierre Larmandier, he converted his vineyards to biodynamics, and he received certification from Demeter in 1998 and released his first Champagne in 2001.
