Tasting Notes

The 2009 Fleuron Brut 1er Cru Blanc de Blancs is sourced from vineyards in Chouilly and Cramant, and aged for four years on the lees. Disgorged in January 2015 with 4.5 grams per liter of dosage, this sample displays a precise, pure and fresh bouquet with some nutty flavors that migrate to a quite deep and rich, very elegant, fresh and well-structured taste with precise fruit aromas. This is still the fresh and mineral Gimonnet style, but with more intensity and complexity in the finish than the non-vintage cuvées. "Due to the dry August and September, we had to wait long to get the physiological ripeness in 2009," says Didier Gimonnet.

TASTING NOTES

This superb Blanc de Blancs from Gimonnet captures the true taste of this domaine in a single blend. Offering ample frut with lingering apple and pears, it has a creamy bead and fine chalk texture of mineral grip and character and possesses intense structural precision. Simply sumptuous.

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.
