Pierre Gimonnet & Fils Brut Blanc de Blancs
|Brand||Pierre Gimonnet & Fils|
"Green-tinged yellow. Intense, mineral-accented aromas of orange zest, pear and white flowers, with an iodiney quality building in the glass. Chewy in texture and nicely concentrated, offering precise citrus and bitter quinine flavors and a strong topnote of dusty minerals. Finishes clean, bright and very long, with lingering chalkiness. This would make a superb match with fresh oysters or crab." Josh Raynolds Vinous Media 92 points Drink 2022+
Brisk and compact, exhibiting apple, floral and lemon notes on a lean profile. Nicely balanced and crisp on the finish.
The NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Chardonnay Premier Cru Cuis is all citrus, flowers and stone fruits. This pure, beautifully sculpted Champagne flows with layers of flavor on a sinewy, mid-weight frame. The finish is long and well-articulated if perhaps just a bit austere. The Blanc de Blancs Chardonnay Premier Cru Cuis is 100% Chardonnay Cuis, based on 2007, with reserve wines from 2006, 2005 and 2004. Disgorged May 28, 2010. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2016.
