Description

Details of wine

Lively, airy, perfectly balanced ... this vintage represents the archetype of the Pierre Gimonnet et Fils style.

Every year all the wines that manage to reproduce the style of the house are used: it is the priority cuvée of the Domaine.

To do this, the wines of the year are mixed very subtly with the reserve wines of different vintages.

To succeed in this delicate and fundamental step, Pierre Gimonnet et Fils has chosen to keep all his reserve wines in the bottle (on the fine lees) and not in the vat (which allows to incorporate wines of more than two years that have preserved all their freshness).

This method of assembly is very rare: it is the only Champagne winemaker to keep all our reserve wines in the bottle, and this since 1982.

A cuvée with great minerality and ideal for starting to get to know the labels created by this Domaine.

The history of the Gimonnet family has been linked to the Champagne region since 1750, but it is from the middle of the twentieth century that Pierre Gimonnet, together with his sons, began to create cuvées of great importance, based on the Chardonnay vine. We find ourselves, not surprisingly, in the Côte des Blancs, where from the 28 hectares of property, the company Pierre Gimonnet produces grapes with which it produces Champagne with a distinctive and absolutely recognizable style. Being able to count on vineyards that reach even 75 years of age, conducted in full and total respect for the environment, the Maison Pierre Gimonnet adds wisdom and perfection. The vinification is based on traditional methods, with grapes that are harvested manually and left to ferment in small vats. The malolactic fermentation follows, after which a single light filtration is carried out before the tirage, while the disgorgement takes place only three months before the product is shipped. Finally, topping up is light and delicate, so as not to mask the natural, elegant and fresh style of Chardonnay.
