Reviews & Scores

The 2009 Brut Fleuron is round, voluptuous and racy. Explosive and spherical on the palate, the 2009 exudes richness, with plenty of the radiance of the year on display. Tropical inflections abound in a deep, boisterous Champagne that feels very ripe by Gimonnet standards. Still, there is so much to like, especially the way the wine maintains so much freshness given its intensity. Vineyard sources are 42.5% Cramant, 30% Chouilly, 18.5% Cuis and 9% Oger. Dosage is 4.5 grams/liter. Disgorged: October 2014.
95 points, Antonio Galloni

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

In fact the bubbles are gentle and smooth giving a creamy texture.  This champagne...
