PIERRE GERBAIS, L'ORIGINALE (EXTRA BRUT), CHAMPAGNE, 6 Bottle Case, 75cl

Equivalent Bottle Price £49.99

The L’Originale is 100% Pinot blanc sourced from old vine plantings. It spends 36 months aging on the lees prior to being disgorged with a dosage of 3 g/l. Around 3000 bottles are made every year.

High intensity nose.  The huge apple notes are a mixed with spiced pear as well.

On the palate the apple notes carry through. The notes are amplified with a sense creaminess and weight in the mouthfeel. The subtle smokiness from the nose linger and compliments the toasty-leesy flavors of the Champagne. The finish is long with a salty minerality. There is a tremendous amount of complexity and character in this Champagne. It is well worth its price tag and outshines many wines in the $100+ range. Being a small production grower, this Pierre Gerbais L’Originale won’t be easy to find but if you can get your hands on it, buy multiple bottles.

From their base in the Côte des Bars, the most southern vineyards of the appellation, the Pierre Gerbais team produce elegant, organic Champagnes that truly reflect the microclimate and terroirs of the Ource Valley. The Réserve is based on a single vintage, a blend of 50% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay and 25% Pinot Blanc from a vineyard on Kimmeridgean marls. The average age of the vines is 30 years old, fruit is handharvested and the varieties are vinified separately.
