Pierre Gimonnet & Fils Brut Special Club Grands Terroirs de Chardonnay 2015
|Region||France, Champagne, Maconnais|
|Brand||Pierre Gimonnet & Fils|
A vibrant blanc de blancs, with a chalky underpinning and a mouthwatering frame wrapped in the creamy mousse, which carries flavors of glazed pear and tangerine, creamed almond and candied ginger. Disgorged January 2022. Drink now through 2030. 60 cases imported.
The 2015 Extra-Brut Special Club Grand Terroirs de Chardonnay is a dense, powerful Champagne. I would give the 2015 another year or two in bottle, as the 2015 is painfully tight and unyielding. Lemon confit, white flowers, mint, graphite, tangerine oil and chamomile open with time in the glass, but only reluctantly so. The 2015s are here. The 2015 is a blend of mostly Cramant and Chouilly, both Grand Crus, with some Premier Cru sites as well. Dosage is 4 grams per liter. Disgorged: May, 2022.
