Cuvée Cuis 1er Cru Brut Blanc de Blancs Chardonnay Champagne

Dégorgement: 2 August 2012. I relearned a lesson this weekend, I do not drink enough Champagne. The three bottles we had were delicious and paired great with our meals. I’m still deciding 👍🏻 or 👎🏻 on air-fryer crab cakes though... — 25 days ago

Never enough champagne 🥂 @Brian Hearty

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2001

More backward and structured than the 1999 or 2000, medium-rich dark fruits, needs another 5 years, best of this mini-vertical. — 2 months ago

Les Renardes 1er Corton Pinot Noir 2010

This is a light expression of Grand Cru Corton Les Renardes. Surprisingly open. More so than the 2009 Montille Beaune 1er Greves. — 2 months ago

Cuis 1er Cru Brut Blanc de Blanc Chardonnay Champagne

A true classic Blanc de Blancs, renowned for being well made, pale lemon, fine bubble flow and light mousse, aromas of fresh stone fruits, warm biscuits and hints of floral notes. On the palate fresh fruit flavors of white peaches and crisp apple with hints of citrus zest. Long finish ending with rich yeasty mineral character, a favorite. — a month ago

Cuvée du Cinquantenaire Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 1999

If I’m going back in COVID lockdown, I may as well enjoy myself. Still fresh for 22 years old. Silky smooth, hints of blueberry, pepper Grenache flavor with the perfect amount of glycerin. This can go a few more years — a month ago

Supposed to hold up with food but tastes like little to nothing to me; don’t really like this
Cru grower champagne class.

Morey-Saint-Denis Pinot Noir 2019

Outstanding village. Predominantly black cherries with a great salty afterburn. Maybe too good for a simple lunch. — 12 days ago

Special Club Grands Terroirs de Chardonnay Champagne 2014

These Pierre Gimonnet champagnes are always of the highest quality from the Côte des Blancs and with terrific prices. An original member of the Club Trésors de Champagne, the Special Club, and an easy buy, each and every time.

The color of starlight on a cloudless night. A surplus of tiny bubbles and persistent perlage throughout. A very clean and focused nose showcasing lemon peel, pears, and sea salt. Vanilla custard and pronounced smoke. Hazelnuts and freshly baked dough with a nice dose of spice. Apples of the green and red varieties.

Some love has to be shown to the labels. Classy metal front label and an ultra informative back label. Pure Chardonnay from the Grand Crus of Cramant (59%) and Chouilly (25%) with the rest coming from the Premier Cru terroir of Cuis. The acidity here is outrageous and highly focused, really beautiful. Very pure and creamy. Disgorged in December of 2019 with an Extra Brut dosage of 4 g/l.

Everything carries over to the palate. A very complex and harmonious champagne. Fresh and bold with more apples and spice. Strong minerality and yeast here. Long, enduring finish. This definitely lives up to the standards of Gimonnet and the Special Club. Don’t sleep on these 14’s, they’re alive and kicking.
