90-92 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "The 2019 Nuits Saint-Georges La Gerbotte, which comes from a cool microclimate adjacent to the Clos de la Maréchale, has a well-defined nose of citrus fruit infused with light gravel/concrete aromas. The palate is well balanced with a fine attack on the entry and notes of orange peel, tangerine and peach skin. It takes its foot off the accelerator toward the finish, which develops a pleasing waxy texture. Very fine and nuanced. Drink: 2022-2032. (Dec 2020)"

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.
