When I first met winemaker Pascal Gerbais in Celles-sur-Ource, now famous as the home of Cedric Bouchard, he was talking to Vouette et Sorbée genius Bertrand Gautherot. I didn’t know they were friends, and Bertrand didn’t know I was interested in Pascal’s wine. He was thrilled. “I would be so happy if you bought these wines,” he said. “Everybody loves Pascal, including his staff and, because they do, they work so hard for him. And I think you will love the prices.” I soon found out he also had some amazing vineyard parcels, including 106-year-old pinot blanc vines that produce a champagne called L’Originale. Thanks to 80 per cent of Gerbais’ production being sold in France, this is a very fine producer that has slipped under many people’s radar. The quality is exceptional and the prices among the lowest you can find for non-industrial champagne. Neville Yates; Eurocentric
75 per cent Pinot Noir, 25 per cent Chardonnay. The wine displays a fine mousse over a delicate, pale golden wine. On the nose one detects brioche, butter and melon and the palate is very slightly off-dry (11 g/l of residual sugar), silky lemon and crème anglais with a very long finish. What incredible value for money! Anthony Stockbridge; Wine Educators
