About the Wine:
La Gerbotte often develops aromas of citrus fruit and white-fleshed fruit, mingled with aromas of fresh almonds and honey. It has a lively, agile structure in the mouth and reflects the precise crystalline expression of its terroir. It is a charming wine which can be tasted young.

The Terroir:
La Gerbotte comes from the youngest Clos de l'Arlot blanc vines, which were planted from 1992 to 2006. It could naturally claim the appellation Nuits Saint Georges premier Cru, however the domaine has chosen to classify the wine under the appellation Nuits Saint Georges Village. This wine fully expresses all the elegance and fullness of this terroir. Lying further from the other vines of the Clos, on a white limestone slab supporting thin ground, the microclimate is not as "sunny". All the elements come together so that the Chardonnay reveals a refined style, which is lively and mineral.

Tasting Notes:
The nose is initially delicate, stony and floral, then on aeration it becomes expressive with notes of toast, butter and white flowers.
The palate is silky, soft and fresh yet invigorating. With great, sappy tautness, this wine shows length and persistence.

Ratings & Reviews

Vinous Media:
"The 2018 Nuits Saint-Georges La Gerbotte was taken from tank, scheduled for bottling in December 2019. It has a well-defined bouquet with scents of apple blossom, sliced pear and crushed stone, quite Puligny-like in style. The palate is well balanced, the 20% new oak lending midpalate weight. Light walnut and fumé notes define the finish, which displays moderate length. Fine. " Neal Martin - (Jan 2020)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Aromas of pastry cream, green apple, apricot and white flowers introduce the 2018 Nuits-Saint-Georges Cuvée La Gerbotte, a medium to full-bodied, rich and fleshy wine that's charming and open-knit. It was a little troubled by suspended lees when I tasted it, but this should be a front-loaded, immediate white Nuits from the Domaine de l'Arlot." - William Kelley (9th Jan 2020)
