Grand Crus, especially Cramant and Chouilly are always dominant in this blend, but anyway, Cuis 1er cru is always essential to sign the fresh and delicate "Pierre Gimonnet & Fils' style". A great wine is a balanced wine between structure, fruit, elegance and finesse, freshness and minerality.
The champagnes of Pierre Gimonnet & Fils are intricately assembled by masterful hands exclusively from enviably positioned and painstakingly tended old vines. Every cuvee sings its aspiration of 'precision, purity and minerality', each speaking articulately of its place in the northern Côte des Blancs through expressive, chalky minerality, without one molecule of detail
out of place. With high-strung tension, crystalline structure and rapier-sharp precision, these are blanc de blancs champagnes charged with an energy that will sustain them long indeed. They represent some of the best-value apéritif champagnes of all. The Champagne Guide 2016-2017, Tyson Stelzer www.tysonstelzer.com
