Tasting Notes

Absolutely outstanding. This low dosage cuvée captures the brilliance of 2008. Classic Gimonnet: racy, driving and mineral with real delicacy. This blossoms in the glass to reveal an underlying seriousness which will unravel with age. Spectacular today but with a big future.

Reviews & Scores

Unlike the Cuis, the Oenophile is mainly based on grand cru grapes (33.5% of the blend comes from Cramant, 32.5% from Chouilly and 10% from Oger, all celebrated grand cru sites), and this helps to add a hint of smoky minerality to the wine’s layered flavours of white blossoms, lemon zest and crunchy green apples.

TASTING NOTES

Deliciously precise with high toned citrus fruit providing thrilling focus and definition.
