Pierre Gimonnet 1er Cru Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

Sale price

Lively, airy, salivating, technically perfect! This cuvee “Brut non-vintage Cuis 1er Cru” represents the archetype of the Pierre Gimonnet & Fils style.

In order to do this, during harvest, the winemaker separates all juice from different terroir in different tanks. After 6-8 months those wines are clear, they taste them and then blend the wine of the year with reserve wines to repeat over the year the style expected of the House.

To succeed with this delicate and fundamental step, the house of Pierre Gimonnet & Fils has chosen to keep all its reserve wines in bottles (on fine lees) and not in tanks or in casks. This method gives more freshness (less oxidation) and more mature (autolysis) in wines. This method is very rare in Champagne.

The difference between a good wine and an exceptional wine is only a question of very, very small details, but we must focus on every detail all of the time,’ declares Didier Gimonnet, who oversees his family’s glorious estate with his brother, Olivier. The champagnes of Pierre Gimonnet & Fils are intricately assembled by masterful hands exclusively from enviably positioned and painstakingly tended old vines. Every cuvée sings its aspiration of ‘precision, purity and minerality’, each speaking articulately of its place in the northern Côte des Blancs through expressive, chalky minerality, without one molecule of detail out of place. With high-strung tension, crystalline structure and rapier-sharp precision, these are blanc de blancs champagnes charged with an energy that will sustain them long indeed. They represent some of the best-value apéritif champagnes of all.

100% Chardonnay of the Côte des Blancs. Grapes harvested manually, split pressing. Cold settling. Temperature controlled alcoholic fermentation. Malolactic fermentation. Stainless tanks for 6 to 8 months (2 rackings). Blending with reserve wines stored in bottles. 5.5 to 6 g/l of sugar. Cold stabilization (-4°) and filtration on clay.
