Notes on the producer
Bertrand Gautherot led the way in biodynamic farming in the Aube region, certified as far back as 1998. An inspiration to the younger generation of local growers, he crafts exceptionally textured, complex and terroir-driven champagnes.
Meticulous viticulture has been practised for more than two decades, yields are tiny, grapes are pressed by an old traditional wooden Coquard press, the wine isn’t pumped or fined and filtered, low SO2 is added at press only, ageing occurs in new to 8yo barrels, and all his champagnes benefit from a couple of years bottle age after being disgorged without dosage.
