The wine

Vouette & Sorbee Textures is an experimental cuvée by Pinot Blanc. It ages in a combination of French oak barrels and amphorae before bottling and aging on lees. It is mature, bulky and has that unmistakable charm of the pinot blanc variety of orange peel and minerals, but with bubbles.

A wine that is as pure as a wine that has just come out of the press. Partial vinification in amphora acts not only as a guarantee of clarity but as an enhancer of a sophisticated and suggestive texture.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

Bertrand Gautherot's biodynamic NV Brut Nature Textures (R14) is a 100% Pinot Blanc from the 2015 harvest that was fermented on the skins in ceramic vessels. Disgorged in November 2016, the wine shows an intense straw-yellow-golden color and a beautifully deep and complex yet fine nose with ripe, concentrated white and yellow-fleshed fruit aromas. Pure, round, fine and very elegant on the palate, this is a juicy, perfectly balanced and beautifully vinous cuvée with a very fine mousse and subtle intensity. It is firm and stimulatingly salty on the complex finish, with ripe apple and lemon/lime flavors in the aftertaste. This is a gorgeous wine whose velvety texture makes it a great wine for itself. There is no aggression or tightness, just a delicate flow of white, fresh fruits with a dash of lime juice and some lip-smacking salinity. Tasted August 2018.
