Winemaker's Notes

Lively, aerial, not measured, technically perfect… This Cuvée Brut sans année Cuis 1er Cru represents the archetype style of the Pierre Gimonnet & Fils.  

One appreciates this classic assembly "without year", a consistent taste, for its vivacity, its lightness, and its fineness: the whole purity of the Great Chardonnays of the Côte des Blancs.

Critical Acclaim

"Fresh apples and cream aromas with a tight citrus and mineral edge. The fruit is fresh but, with the attractive ripeness of white currants. Very full in the mouth, very much a wine, suggesting an ability to go with food."
92 Points

"A good aperitif-style Champagne, with fresh, juicy acidity and aromatic white peach, apple blossom and lemongrass notes. This is well put together, with a lightly spiced, mouthwatering finish. Drink now."
90 Points

"Bright straw. A complex, highly perfumed bouquet offers lime pith, fennel, jasmine and chalk. Lively and delineated in the mouth, lending incisive citrus and quince flavors that are underscored by intense minerality. Very tight, with strong finishing cut and lingering chalkiness."
90 Points

Today, nearly 75% of Champagne...
