NV Pierre Gerbais Bochot Lieu Dit Blanc de Noirs Extra Brut

Champagne, France

A powerful and poised Blanc de Noirs from a true innovator in Champagne




About the Wine

Made solely from Pinot Meunier, the NV Pierre Gerbais Bochot Lieu Dit Blanc de Noirs Extra Brut shows the complexity and power, as well as class, that is possible from this red grape in a blanc de noirs. The aromatics shows a rich bouquet of honey, baked goods, stone fruit, blueberry and some creaminess, which shine from the glass.

The palate reflects the ripeness of the fruit, with more baked goods, honey, stone fruits as well as apple and berries giving it richness. The fresh acidity and minerality give the champagne a lovely mouthfeel, with a long finish to this beautiful wine.

About Pierre Gerbais

The Gerbais family has farmed their patch of the deep south of Champagne, Celles-sur-Ource in the Cote-des-Bar, since 1930.

An organic operation since 1996, this family Domaine is notable for their use of Pinot Blanc in their Champagne cuveés. The addition of this variety brings a floral aspect to the wines and brings a freshness to the acidity.

Aurélien Gerbais, 8th generation grower and 4th generation winemaker runs the show, releasing fine elegant wines, delivered in a delicate frame.

Additional Info

From the Importer

Of the three traditional Champagne grape varieties, the Côte des Bar region strongly favours Pinot noir cultivation, followed by Chardonnay. The village of Celles-sur-Ource—where Champagne Pierre Gerbais is based—respects this trend, cropping Meunier at 2% of total production, making the family’s latest arrival of Bochot (a single-vineyard, 100% Meunier cuvée) a compelling singularity. Planted by sélection massale (the traditional practice of vineyard propagation with exceptional old vines) in the lieu-dit (single parcel of vines) of Bochot, grapes are managed organically and vinified in stainless steel vats, undergoing malolactic fermentation and maturation on fine lees before ageing for 36 months sur latte (storing bottles on their side for secondary fermentation and maturation). With this lieu-dit vinified in isolation for the first time and complemented with perpetual reserve wine from 2016 to 2017, Bochot is available in very limited quantities: disgorged in April 2021 and finished with 3 g/L dosage, only 991 bottles were produced.
