Grower Champagne focus: Gimonnet Cuvée Fleuron 1er Cru Blanc de Blancs 2006

Had this at lunch on Thursday at the excellent Prospect restaurant in San Francisco, where sommelier Josh Thomas has put together a stunning and well priced list of fizz. I’m a big fan of the Gimonnet Cuis 1er Cru, but this is a real step up. Concentrated and lovely.

Champagne Pierre Gimonnet Cuvée Fleuron 1er Cru Blanc de Blancs 2006 France
Tight, fresh and concentrated with subtle toast and intense lemony fruit. Really vibrant with ripe apple and lime notes. This is a superb Champagne: lively and complex with lovely focus. 94/100
