WW 96

The 2009 Pierre Gimonnet & Fils Cuvée Fleuron Champagne is outstanding and satisfies all palates. You can pull the cork for a wine geek who loves minerality as easily as you can pour a glass for a neophyte wine imbiber who enjoys lots of ripe fruit. The wine's completeness puts it in a class by itself. Drinks well now. (Tasted: October 17, 2016, San Francisco, CA)
WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
This is a serious wine, with its mineral texture and tangy structure. It has plenty of apple and zingy orange flavors. But the main thrust at this stage is of a wine poised for considerable aging. Fresh and still tight, it needs several years. Drink from 2018.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Fleuron Brut 1er Cru Blanc de Blancs is sourced from vineyards in Chouilly and Cramant, and aged for four years on the lees. Disgorged in January 2015 with 4.5 grams per liter of dosage, this sample displays a precise, pure and fresh bouquet with some nutty flavors that migrate to a quite deep and rich, very elegant, fresh and well-structured taste with precise fruit aromas. This is still the fresh and mineral Gimonnet style, but with more intensity and complexity in the finish than the non-vintage cuvées. "Due to the dry August and September, we had to wait long to get the physiological ripeness in 2009," says Didier Gimonnet.

Since before 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. As the sales of grapes fell during this prolonged recession, Monsieur Pierre Gimonnet finally decided to take up the challenge of vinifying and commercializing his own harvest. It was a great struggle at first, establishing a clientele who were not, at that time, accustomed to "blanc de blancs" Champagnes, not least from a new small independent producer. The effort finally paid off and today the name of Champagne Pierre Gimonnet et Fils is one of great renown, and highly respected. Pierre Gimonnet built this reputation on the base of his unique and exceptional vineyard, half a century of experience and the uncompromising standards that he imposed upon himself. The estate is now run by Pierre's sons, Michel and Didier, who share the fanaticism of their father for the Gimonnet Champagnes. In 1987 the Gimonnet family acquired the house of Larmandier Père et Fils based in Cramant. This brought some exceptional vineyards to the Gimonnet enterpise. Although the Larmandier wines are vinified at the Gimonnet cellars in Cuis the cuvées are vinified and aged seperately. Consequently some remarkable Champagnes are produced from the Cramant Grand Cru vineyards, especially the outstanding Larmandier Cramant Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs and the exquisite Cramant Grand Cru Special Club.The policy of the estate, from the very beginning, in the true traditions of all great wine makers was to limit the production of grapes in the search of quality, with the ambition to become one of the great specialists of "blanc de blancs" Champagnes.
