100% Pinot Noir that is meant as the perfect snapshot of Bertrand Gautherot's special terroir in the Aube. Grown completely in the Kimmeridgian soils - found most notably in the Chablis and Sancerre wine regions - of the Côte des Bar, the Fidele displays a rich depth of aroma and assertive personality.

If you ever need to convince someone how different biodynamic farming is than conventional, you should take them to visit the Gautherots’ vineyards at Champagne Vouette et Sorbée.

Bertrand Gautherot is a great winemaker. But he is first and foremost a farmer. He keeps chickens and cows and not just to follow organic and biodynamic principles; he wants to minimize any inputs that don't come from the farm itself, because they could detract from the terroir.

You can see the rewards of Bertrand’s fanatical devotion in his soils and vines. Pick up a handful of his soil and it's dark, loosely packed, and full of life—it even smells alive. And his vines prosper: they're deeply colored and look strong.

But his neighbor’s vines, which get chemical sprays and fertilizers, grow in gray soils that are so hard-packed that you couldn't pick a handful up if you wanted to. There’s no life in them—nothing crawling in them because the pesticides kill everything indiscriminately. And the vines are tall, but listless. They both have the same incredible terroir. But only Bertrand grows vines that can dig deep and really express it.

Of course, Vouette & Sorbée wouldn't have become one of the most sought-after grower Champagnes if Bertrand didn't know what to do with the incredible fruit he grows. But he does, and the wines are amazing.

"The Extra Brut Fidèle bursts from the glass with an exciting melange of aromas and flavors. The Pinot is very much alive in the glass in a rich, textured Champagne loaded with class and elegance. Dried pears, marzipan, dried flowers and licorice flesh beautifully. This striking wine from Vouette et Sorbée is oozing with personality." -Vinous
