Profiling Champagne Pierre Gerbais

Aurélien Gerbais, 8th generation grower and 4th generation winemaker of Champagne Pierre Gerbais, spearheads the small, artisanal Domaine located in the village of Celles-sur-Ource in the Côte des Bar. The family holds the oldest Pinot Blanc vines of the region, on a plot called Les Proies. L’Originale, the most famous cuvée of the House, comprises entirely of these centenarian vines—the varietal composition of which was unprecedented for its time and cleverly reflected in the title.
