Pierre Gimonnet & Fils Brut Blanc de Blancs
SKU MSW KPG-1
The 1er Cru Blanc de Blancs is made of Chardonnay from Premier Cru sites in Cuis. What’s on the market now was disgorged in May, 2017 and this will be here through the summer. It’s 70% 2013, 6% 2012, 9% of 2011, 10% of 2010 and 5% of 2009. It’s both classy and classic young Gimonnet; mineral, stylish and needing only time to shed the youthful brashness that partly obscures the rich toasty flowery fruit. A subtle oxidative note, while fellow tasters spoke of “lactic” “caramel” and “butterscotch.” Didier theorizes it’s the ’12 in the blend. —Terry Theise
