Bertrand Gautherot was inspired by many role models before he started creating champagne himself, including Anselme Selosse & Guy Bossard.
Since 1998, all vineyards have been certified organic, but are even consistently farmed biodynamically. His deep connection to nature becomes clear as soon as you discover his cow and chickens.
Untypical for his region, he vinifies almost all champagnes according to the vintage, even all parcels separately. The vintage can be identified by the word "Récolte" = harvest in connection with the respective year on the label.
In the cellar, Bertrand tries to intervene as little as possible: no chaptalisation, no fining or filtration, no pure yeasts, no dosage.
His champagnes are characterful mirrors of the respective year with sometimes tiny amounts of réserv wines - often smoky, juicy and with great drinkability.
