Bertrand Gautherot used to simply sell his grapes to other Champagne producers, but it wasn't until his good friend, Anselme Selosse, demand that he makes his own Champagne. Since 2001, Bertrand has been doing just that and is continuously mentioned with the likes of the new champagne superpowers, Dominique Moreau (Marie Courtin), Pascal Agrapart and Cedric Bouchard. He is situated in Aube, in the Cote de Bar subregion of Champagne, which is geological and geographically closer to Chablis than it is the rest of Champagne. His Blanc d'Argile shows this beautifully, with it jokingly being considered a sparkling Chablis by Bertrand himself. This wine is incisive, with elegant complexity and fine, delicate bubbles. Spending 20 months in barrel with lees contact, it develops notes of shortbread, yellow plum, apple and honeysuckle, with other elements of blossom, lemon rind, grapefruit piths and herbs. The finish is soft and long, proposing the thought that you should always have Vouette et Sorbee Champagnes on hand.
