Reviews & Scores

The 2002 Brut Special Club de Collection presents a fairly rich, deep expression of fruit but with more than enough structure and energy to provide balance. The 2002 is notable for its rich, creamy textured, remarkable depth and super-finessed texture. It is another terrific wine from Gimmonet. The 2002 is 54% Cramant and 31% Chouilly (both Grand Crus), along with 15% Cuis (Premier Cru), all old vines. As always, the Special Club is made from older vineyards, with a heavy percentage of Grand Cru fruit. This bottle was disgorged March 30, 2011. Dosage is 6 grams per liter. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2021. Antonio Galloni.

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

Pale salmon pink with a very fine mousse. Delicate red berry flavours with a core of minerality, a finely-textured palate and a backbone...
