Notes & Scores

Burghound

A wafting and distinctly cool nose featuring essence of white
flowers and Meyer lemon slides gracefully into bright, clean and utterly delicious middle weight flavors that possess lovely
depth and length on the markedly dry finish. This is dry but not aggressively so and I very much like the yeasty character that
adds significant interest to the finale. For my taste this is drinking perfectly now though it could easily be held. Lovely and
understated. Now+

clean and utterly delicious. 93 Points

Victoria Moore, The Telegraph

An immaculate blanc de blancs (100% chardonnay) champagne, arrow-like in its precision and focus, with an invigorating sourness and gentle touch of white blossom.

Wine Spectator

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

Armit Tasting Note

Beautifully pure, floral nose. On the palate a racy, energetic feel with nuances of stonefruit, acacia, brioche and underlying minerality. Lovely purity and vitality run like a vein through the wine, which has a long, crisp, slighty nutty finish. Exemplary Blanc de Blancs and great apéritif style.

This bottling is 72% 2011, with the balance from four vintages back to 2006. Delicate, fine toasty notes on the nose. Real finesse, in a pure, precise style with bright citrus and white peach fruit. This is such a pure wine with real finesse. 93 Points.

Producer

Champagne Pierre Gimonnet et Fils is a rare phenomenon in Champagne with 25 hectares of vines planted exclusively with Chardonnay, from which they produce refined Blanc de Blancs cuvées of distinction. Over the last 3 generations, they have refined the Gimonnet style, creating a marriage of expressions between the Chardonnay grape and the unique terroir of their wonderful Cuis Premier Cru, Cramant and Chouilly Grand Cru vineyards.

Since 1750, the Gimonnet family's passion and livelihood have been closely tied to the vineyards of Champagne. Centuries of tradition, knowledge and dedication have been passed down through three generations and today, the estate is in the extremely capable hands of Didier and Olivier Gimonnet. The aim of the House is to extract maximum expression from the grapes and terroir. With 16 hectares in Premier Cru vineyards and 12 hectares in Grand Cru vineyards nestling in the heart of the Côte des Blancs, they are ideally placed to cultivate some of the region's finest Chardonnay.

Region

It is said that a champagne bottle is popped open every second of the day somewhere in the world.

The last 20 years has seen unprecedented growth in export sales, led by the UK along with mergers and acquisitions of brands and estates by the big Champagne houses. Whilst auspicious brands as Dom Pérignon, Krug, Pol Roger and Louis Roederer's Cristal rightly command attention and respect, the very essence and spirit still remains with the growers and the quality of the vineyards.

As important as the big name brands will continue to be, Champagne domaines such as Pierre Gimonnet epitomise the spirit and, above all, future for this region. It is worth remembering that there are over 300 villages and defined vineyard areas in Champagne but only 51 of these command Premier or Grand Cru status.

The region's name conjures up an immediate sense of celebration and joie de vivree, revered the world, with an image which the Champagne industry has promoted brilliantly for over a hundred years.
