Pierre Gimonnet Cuvée Cuis Brut Blanc de Blancs 1er Cru
The champagnes of Pierre Gimonnet & Fils are intricately assembled by masterful hands exclusively from enviably positioned and painstakingly tended old vines. Every cuvée sings its aspiration of ‘precision, purity and minerality’, each speaking articulately of its place in the northern Côte des Blancs through expressive, chalky minerality, without one molecule of detail out of place. With high-strung tension, crystalline structure and rapier-sharp precision, these are blanc de blancs champagnes charged with an energy that will sustain them long indeed. They represent some of the best-value apéritif champagnes of all - The Champagne Guide 2016-2017, Tyson Stelzer
Lively, aerial, not measured, technically perfect... This Cuvee Brut sans annee Cuis 1er Cru represents the archetype style of the Pierre Gimonnet & Fils.
The NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Cuvée Cuis 1er Cru is terrific. Bright and nervy, as these wines are, the Cuvée Cuis also has a good bit of depth to round out the contours. Lemon peel, almond and dried flowers all add nuance throughout. This is an especially open-knit edition of the Cuvée Cuis, which is just fine, as this wine can be a bit angular upon release. Dosage is 6 grams per liter. Rating: 90 Points; Antonio Galloni; Vinous
In these days of sharply rising prices, this family-run house offers great value thanks to its magnificent chardonnay vineyards. This is Gimmonet's entry-point wine, the bouquet of white flowers/apple blossom, the palate with elegance and balance, fruit finish fresh thanks to the modest dosage of 5.5g/l.
