PIERRE GERBAIS EXTRA BRUT RESERVE

JOHN GILMAN 92+ POINTS-"The Cuvée de Réserve non-vintage Brut bottling from the Gerbais family (Pierre’s son Pascal, and his grandson, Aurélien Gerbais, currently run the family estate) is comprised of a blend of fifty percent Pinot Noir, twenty-five percent Pinot Meunier and twenty-five percent Pinot Blanc. This is the same cuvée I tasted a year ago, with an additional years’ worth of bottle age, and the wine is absolutely singing. The bouquet is a vibrant and complex constellation of apple, tangerine, a touch of fresh nutmeg, Chablis-like flinty chalk, brioche and an exotic touch of lavender in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and laser-like in its focus, with a superb core, elegant mousse, zesty acids and outstanding mineral drive on the long and complex finish. I clearly underrated this a bit last year, as this is a beautiful bottle of Côte des Bar bubbly."
