Pierre Gimonnet et Fils NV Oger Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Brut Chardonnay (Champagne)

  • Online Exclusive
In keeping with Gimonnet’s dry style, this is almost bone dry and as sharp as a knife. Behind the steely texture, it is fruity as well, with tight apple and strong citrus flavors. It’s a tense and nervy style with depth of flavor and concentration. This is 100% Chardonnay harvested in 2011 from Oger grand cru vineyards in the Côte des Blancs. Drink now, although it…  — R.V.  (12/1/2014)

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

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $48
A blend of wines from six different villages across five vintages goes into this supreme example of a Blanc de Blancs. It is so crisp, so mineral and textured. At the same time, it is elegant, fresh and lively. Although it is nonvintage, it will benefit from some more time in bottle, so drink from summer 2015.  — R.V.  (12/1/2014)

The Spécial Club is a grouping of Champagne producers who taste each other’s wines before allowing them to be released under this label.

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 2008 Oenophile Premier Cru Blanc de Blancs Extra Brut Chardonnay (Champagne)

  1. $80
Extra Brut and the wine is also described as non dosé, meaning no dosage. So it’s as dry as a bone while also being totally crisp, fresh and fruity. It also means that it needs to age in bottle to allow the mouthwatering acidity to soften a little. As it fills out, it will become an impressive wine that has pure fruits to go with the minerality. Keep until 2017.  — R.V.  (12/1/2014)

Pierre Gimonnet et Fils 2006 Spécial Club Premier Cru Blanc de Blancs Brut Chardonnay (Champagne)

  1. $94
Spécial Club is a grouping of growers who taste each other’s wines and approve them for Club status. This is certainly an impressive wine, seamlessly moving from freshness to richness via a steely texture. It is still impressively young and fruity, a bright, crisp wine that will age for several more years. Drink from 2016.  — R.V.  (12/1/2014)
