Textures is Gautherot’s newest cuvee, a rare, 100% Pinot Blanc Champagne crafted from vines in the Fonnet vineyard (planted between 1995 and 2000). The 2015 was fermented and raised in large Georgian amphora and used oak barrels before blending and then spent 18 months on lees in bottle. These amphora afford Gautherot the kind of lees contact and minimal oxidation he is looking for.
Other Reviews (disgorgement dates vary)....
Very impressive no matter what your ilk. Powerful scents of lemon, lemon curd, lemon rind. Intensely fruity and then a wall of powerful texture. Amazing flavour profile with coiled, concentrated layers of citrus, lemon oil, saline licks, faint nuttiness and finishes with firm, chewy, chalky finish. Such intensity and drive; and building constantly in the glass. Wonderful drinking; absolutely love it. Such character.

Bertrand Gautherot's biodynamic NV Brut Nature Textures (R14) is a 100% Pinot Blanc from the 2015 harvest that was fermented on the skins in ceramic vessels. Disgorged in November 2016, the wine shows an intense straw-yellow-golden color and a beautifully deep and complex yet fine nose with ripe, concentrated white and yellow-fleshed fruit aromas. Pure, round, fine and very elegant on the palate, this is a juicy, perfectly balanced and beautifully vinous cuvée with a very fine mousse and subtle intensity. It is firm and stimulatingly salty on the complex finish, with ripe apple and lemon/lime flavors in the aftertaste. This is a gorgeous wine whose velvety texture makes it a great wine for itself. There is no aggression or tightness, just a delicate flow of white, fresh fruits with a dash of lime juice and some lip-smacking salinity.
