Intense straw yellow with golden reflections. Fine and persistent perlage. Citrus, peach, pear, jasmine flowers, sweet spices, pastry/bread, mineral notes. Direct and intense on the palate. Lively acidity that integrates well with intense flavor. Good structure. Intense and complex. Balanced with a persistent finish in a fruity, citrusy and pleasantly tasty return.

Lively, airy, salivating, with perfect balance... this vintage represents the archetype of the Pierre Gimonnet et Fils style. Every year, we use all the wines we need to reproduce this style of the House: it is the Domaine's priority cuvée. To this end, we are careful to combine the wines of the year in a very subtle way with reserve wines from different years.

To be successful in this delicate and fundamental phase, Pierre Gimonnet et Fils chose to keep all of its reserve wines in bottles (in the upper part of the bottle). Reserve wines in bottles (on fine lees) and not in vats (which makes it possible to incorporate wines that are more than two years old and have maintained all their freshness). years of age that have maintained all their freshness). This blending method is very rare: we are the only winegrower in the Champagne region to keep all our wines in the bottle (on fine lees). To keep all our reserve wines in bottles, and this has been the case since 1982.
