NV Pierre Gimonnet 'Brut Extra' 1er Cru Blanc de Blancs

NV Pierre Gimonnet 'Brut Extra' 1er Cru Blanc de Blancs
Champagne, France

Pierre Gimonnet proves to be a master blender with this non-vintage 1er Cru. On his 25 hectare property, Pierre tends to a majority of vines aged about 40 years and also to a small parcel of 80 year-old vines. In order to gain character and complexity in NV cuvĂ©es, he builds his wines with single vintages that have aged in the bottle instead of  previously finished blends. This bottling contains 5-10 year-old wine made of Chardonnay grown in Cote de Blancs. Single-year vintage Champagne is certainly special, but there is really something to be said about a wonderfully constructed multi-vintage bubbly. The complexity, depth and nuance is profound.

92 points, Wine Advocate. "A touch of brioche on the nose leads to well-meshed flavors of ripe pear, apple blossom, lemon pastry cream and grated ginger in this expressive Champagne. Offers a rich flavor profile in a clean-cut, minerally frame and a long, fine finish of oyster shell and spice."
