About This Wine

Pierre Gimonnet's NV 'entry' label boasts a huge percentage of Grand Cru fruit from Gimonnet's own vineyards in the Cote des Blanc. Based in Cuis (known for lacy and racy Champagne's), this is deemed as Premier Cru. An Absolute banger for an entry level and it's acute citrus and saline flavours have you reaching for every oyster you can get your hands on. 

The majority of their fruit comes from Cuis-where the fruit's acidity is well known to provide freshness to many Champagne House's NV blends. Because of this intense freshness, Gimonnet ages their still reserve wines in magnum before adding it to the NV blend. An almost unique technique (Bollinger also does this) that adds extra toasty softness to this incredibly pure and crisp style.

This Grower Champagne is based in Cuis on the Cote des Blancs of Champagne.  This is Chardonnay county. The mostly east facing slope is south of the famed towns of Reims and Epernay and is almost entirely planted to Chardonnay. It's where the great houses source their Chardonnay from. 
Pierre Gimonnet have been growing grapes here since 1750. They used to be one of the favoured sources of Chardonnay for Pol Roger. Pierre Gimonnet realised they could express their vineyards in their own style in the 1920's and began their own label. The current generation; Didier and Olivier Gimonnet took their fathers change of style and ran with it. Their wines are best described as crystalline, salty with diamond edged acidity. The only house that they allow to buy their fruit is still their mates at Pol Roger. 
They have a huge percentage of Grand Cru fruit (almost 50%) and utilise this generously in their NV styles right up to their single vineyard Champagnes. They are also a part of the 'Special Club' (we know that does not translate as fancily to English as the French think); a grower cooperation that peer reviews/approves ever bottle that bears the co-ops mark.
