Gimonnet Cuis

I love this Champagne. It’s one I’ve enjoyed before, and so it was nice that it was the first one to be shown on this trip, in a small tasting at the CIVC‘s head offices in Epernay. It’s also stunning value for money. Interestingly, it has ‘Chardonnay’ on the front label. I wasn’t aware that this was allowed in Champagne, and I’m not sure the CIVC are massively keen on it.

Champagne Gimonnet Blanc de Blancs Cuvee Cuis 1er Cru NV France
This bottling is 72% 2011, with the balance from four vintages back to 2006. Delicate, fine toasty notes on the nose. Real finesse, in a pure, precise style with bright citrus and white peach fruit. This is such a pure wine with real finesse. 93/100 (£24 The Wine Society)

UK agent: Armit

  1. Hi Jamie – this is a relatively low dosage (8 grams) wine – do you mind highlighting the dosage on anything you write up? Thanks!
