Tasting Notes

There is an incredible tension to this wine. Energetic on the palate with a brisk citrus, floral and mineral notes abound in this expressive Champagne that is the ideal partner to oysters. Long, layered and very special indeed.

100% Chardonnay. 38% Chouilly grand cru, 17% Cuis premier cru, 24% Cramant grand cru, 10% Oger grand cru, 11% Vertus premier cru. Stainless steel. Malo done. Made with less pressure for ‘creamier, smaller bubbles’ to go with food. 36–48 months’ ageing on lees. Dosage 6.5 g/l. Very fine and well constructed with lots of delivery and layers (unusual in champagne). Drink 2017-2026.

This crunchy, elegant Champagne is the ultimate expression of Geoffroy's prized Pinot. It wears its elegance with modesty, displaying a delicate golden delicious perfume combined with a superb lifted crunch. It is long and extremely textural but stand beautifully on its own as an aperitif. Armit Wines

TASTING NOTES

Beautifully pure, floral nose. On the palate a racy, energetic feel with nuances of stone fruit, acacia, brioche and underlying minerality. Lovely purity and vitality run like a vein through the wine, which has a long, crisp, slightly nutty finish. Exemplary Blanc de Blancs and great apéritif style. Deliciously precise with high toned citrus fruit providing thrilling focus and definition....

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.Armit Wines
