Gimonnet is a grower Champagne house with 69 acres, more vineyard acreage in the Côte des Blancs than any of the larger producers. The Gimmonets have many old-vine parcels in some of the regions most exceptional grands crus, but the house makes no Champagnes that meet grand cru regulations. Instead, they chose to blend from different sites in order to craft their desired style. All of the reserve wines used for their NV champagnes are housed in bottles, rather than the more common practice of keeping reserve wines in tanks.

Tasting Notes

This is a Champagne of superb structure, offering a very beautiful body, with elegance and finesse.  A vein of pure acidity drive propels an incredible mineral finish. This is a cuvee of poise and energy.   

Method

The Special Club is a meticulously selected blend of the estate’s oldest vines (plots ranging from 40 years old to plots planted in 1911 and 1913).  The vineyards are located in Cramant Grand Cru (60%) and Chouilly Grand Cru (30%) with just some grapes coming from Cuis (1%) Premier Cru to give the Gimmonet touch of crispness.   Aged on the lees for more than the minimum requirements and utilizing very little dosage- just 5 g/L. The assembly is composed exclusively of Chardonnay and the cuvee confers complexity and longevity.
