Pierre Gimonnet et Fils NV Sélection Belles Années Blanc de Blancs Brut Chardonnay (Champagne)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $44
This is an impressively rich nonvintage selection, with tropical fruit as well as a mineral-driven character. It’s impressive and would certainly take more bottle aging.  — R.V.  (12/1/2012)

Pierre Gimonnet et Fils 2005 Spécial Club Premier Cru Blanc de Blancs Brut Chardonnay (Champagne)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $85
The Spécial Club is a grouping of Champagne producers who taste each other’s wines before allowing them to be released under this label. With its pure expression of mineral-driven, tense Chardonnay, this is made in a dry style. It’s fragrant, fruity and ready to age for several years.  — R.V.  (12/1/2012)

Pierre Gimonnet et Fils 2004 Oenophile Premier Cru Blanc de Blancs Extra Brut Chardonnay (Champagne)

  1. $76
With no dosage, this is dry, and you can taste it. It is a tight, very crisp wine, but the ripe fruit gives plenty of weight and ripe lime and green plum flavors. The perfect food Champagne.  — R.V.  (12/1/2011)

Pierre Gimonnet et Fils 2004 Spécial Club Premier Cru Blanc de Blancs Brut Chardonnay (Champagne)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $88
Richness, concentration, great weight and balance. Despite the ripeness, the crispness of the house style dominates. The apple flavors and the minerality need several years to really mature. From mainly grand cru vineyards.  — R.V.  (12/1/2011)

Pierre Gimonnet et Fils 1999 Premier Cru Special Club Brut Chardonnay (Champagne)

  1. $38
A blend of Grand Cru wines from Cramant and Chouilly and Premier Cru from Cuis (which is why it is only premier cru), this is all about freshness. It’s more of a soft year, so this has a lightness and crispness while giving an open character over the creamy fruit.  — R.V.  (12/1/2007)

Pierre Gimonnet et Fils 2002 Fleuron Premier Cru Blanc de Blancs Brut Chardonnay (Champagne)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $64
This recently released 2002 is still showing its youth, with a firm, mineral edge to it. But it does have the right refreshingly crisp character, along with intense fruits, and acidity that just powers right through. Wait 3–4 years.  — R.V.  (12/1/2007)

Pierre Gimonnet et Fils 1999 Oenophile Premier Cru Extra Brut Chardonnay (Champagne)

  1. $66
For those who like their Champagnes extra dry, this is a good example because it has some richness to balance that intense grapefruit shock on the palate. It is beginning to get some good age as well, as the structure and the toast begin to kick in. Another year, and it will be delicious.  — R.V.  (12/1/2007)

Pierre Gimonnet et Fils 1999 Fleuron Premier Cru Blanc de Blancs Brut Chardonnay (Champagne)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $55
The aromas are almost honeyed, the palate is poised, elegant, crisply green. Despite its youth, this blanc de blancs shows delicious white fruit and crisp green flavors. Great as an apéritif, as it develops and ages, it should also be a good food wine.  — R.V.  (11/1/2006)
