Region: AOC Champagne – Côtes des Bar, Aube
Varietals: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc
Producer: Pierre Gerbais
In Brief: Don’t dismiss southern Champagne. This wine is full of stony Japanese pear, dried apples, and subtle lemony notes. And with nearly three years on the lees, it holds nothing back. It is creamy but with perfectly balanced acidity.
