Pierre Gimonnet & Fils Brut Blanc de Blancs


SKU 01283


An unusually detailed and filigree and deft and complex wine, more than everything that a N.V. Blanc de Blancs can be. There's a wonderful lacy mélange of balsam, chalk, green tea, wintergreen, peony, with fine diction.

Wine SpectatorBrisk and compact, exhibiting apple, floral and lemon notes on a lean profile. Nicely balanced and crisp on the finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 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.
