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.

100% Chardonnay. Essentially the 2008 Fleuron with zero dosage. 33.5% Cramant, 32.5% Chouilly, 10% Oger (all grands crus), 22% Cuis premier cru, 2% Vertus. Stainless steel. 8 months on lees. Malo done. Bottled April 2009. 5–6 years on lees. Dosage 0 g/l. Lots of evolution and satisfaction on the nose. Relatively ripe start and quite enough ripe fruit to compensate for zero dosage. Pungent, well-balanced wine – one of the best non-dosé examples in this tasting. Smoky finish. Drink 2018-2028.

TASTING NOTES

The blend consists of 95% Tempranillo from 40-year-old vines in Las Cuevas, El Palo and Las Monjas in Rodezno, complemented with 5% Graciano from the Montecillo estate in Fuenmayor. The Graciano gives the wine an aromatic intensity and acidity, to carry the structure and elegance of the Tempranillo. The grapes are vinified separately in four-and-a-half-year-old American oak for three years, and...
