Since 1750 the Gimonnet family have been vine growers in the village of Cuis, supplying the great Champagne houses with grapes up until the 1930's recession, when sales fell. Today the estate is run by Pierre's sons, Michel and Didier, and in 1987 acquired the house of Larmandier Père et Fils based in Cramant. Classic BdB, light and refreshing, great balance, complex with perfectly ripe fruit, bubbles and mousse. Lingering finish with bright mineral ending. — a year ago
BO'S tasting - 60% 07 vintage with 10 further back vintages in blend - no oak treatment - an opulent wine - probably the best NV on the market in Oz - "a clean Krug!" — 3 years ago
Tasty biscotti like flavour that has nice great persistence and then layers with lemon curd. A great champagne for those who like power but something a bit more refined. I am a bolli guy who can't afford krug. My old boss at universal wine bar in Adelaide used to drink it every weekend. Classic! — 3 years ago
75% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay from 35- to 40-year-old vines; 100% grand cru.
Rich texture in the wine with a tighter bead. Stone fruit, tea, and a sort of ginger style spice hinting through. — 4 years ago
Medium-bodied with aromas of spiced apple & brioche. Crisp acidity, notes of green apple, nutmeg, biscuit, buttery Chardonnay hints, and citrus. Good length. — 4 years ago
