92 points Tim Atkin, MW (Decanter): "Picked comparatively late on September 6th, given that some domains started in August, but this is still a fresh, focused, stylishly balanced white from Géraldine Godot with 20% new wood, flavours of citrus and wet stones, some white flower top notes and tangy, palate-cleansing acidity. A great value white that would be very difficult to pick in a blind tasting. Drinking Window: 2020-2023. (Oct 2019)"

La Gerbotte comes from the youngest Clos de l'Arlot blanc vines, planted in 1992 and 2006. It could naturally claim the appellation Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru, however the Domaine has chosen to classify the wine under Nuits-Saint-Georges Village due to youthfulness of the vines. Lying further from the other vines of the Clos, on a limestone slab supporting thin ground, the micro-climate is not as "sunny", thus creating a wine with great acidity and minerality.
