CHAMPAGNE

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.

TASTING NOTES

If the wines of Gimonnet weren’t already food friendly enough this cuvée is bottled at slightly lower pressure. This results in a sensuous, creamy mousse that combines in joyous harmony with the crystalline fruit and subtly rich vintage character. Pure elegance and charm are on show here.

This is a blend of four parcels from Le Mesnil sur Oger, Oger, Avize and Cramant. Although a Non-Vintage wine, the grapes are all from the 2010 vintage. Ripe citrus fruits with a very clean, pure and expressive nose. Bursts of lemon zest, grapefruit and yellow stone fruit are wrapped with a saline minerality on the palate. This wine displays...

TASTING NOTES

The nose of this Champagne is a spring bouquet: rose, wild strawberry, raspberry and later blackberry, combine perfectly to offer the taster aromas, which would be unexpected in a normal rosé Champagne. The mouth follows on from the nose, with the structure of the Pinot Noir leaving at a convincing vinosity at the finish. By virtue of its freshness, this...

TASTING NOTES

The only solely Grand Cru Cuvée that Gimonnet makes. This is a new release to the UK market. Oger is an expression of the terroir; richer and rounder, atypical of the house style. A savoury, rich Champagne, showing toasty, smokey and mushroom flavours. Powerful and complex supported by the acidity the house holds dear. It finishes with a freshness and...

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.
