2014 Pierre Gimmonet ‘Fleuron’ Blanc de Blanc Brut 1er Cru
One of our favorite producers from the Cotes des Blancs. Didier Gimonnet is the second generation of growers to direct this superb estate, with 28 hectares of holdings in grand and premier cru villages. 100% Chardonnay - 58% Grand Cru fruit and 42% 1er Cru fruit. Initial fermentaion in stainless steel. Goes through full ML. Aged on lees for 65 months!
94 points, Antonio Galloni's Vinous. "The 2014 Brut Blanc de Blancs Fleuron is rich and effusive in the glass. Freshly cut flowers, mint, citrus confit and white pepper soar with notable intensity as the Fleuron shows off its alluring, inviting personality. The Fleuron is one of the most elegant and refined wines I have ever tasted from Gimonnet. Cut like a diamond, the Fleuron dazzles from start to finish. Drinking window: 2022 - 2030."
