Pierre Gimonnet may not be familiar to many, but he is a serious Champagne grower who tries to retain his quality by limiting all their source of grapes from only 1er Cru vineyards. They are a knowledgeable wine grower who knows the soil excellently well, and many of their cuvees are fantastically priced.
Pierre Gimmonnet produces a vintage cuvee, Fleuron Millesimes, a Blanc de Blancs (100% Chardonnay) with majority of the grapes from Chouilly and Cramant. Wine Enthusiast rated the Champagne 93 points and said, “This is a serious wine, with its mineral texture and tangy structure”. Wine Advocate also joined the praise and gave it 92 points, describing the wine to have “more intensity and complexity in the finish than the non-vintage cuvées”.

This is a serious wine, with its mineral texture and tangy structure. It has plenty of apple and zingy orange flavors. But the main thrust at this stage is of a wine poised for considerable aging. Fresh and still tight, it needs several years. Drink from 2018.

The 2009 Fleuron Brut 1er Cru Blanc de Blancs is sourced from vineyards in Chouilly and Cramant, and aged for four years on the lees. Disgorged in January 2015 with 4.5 grams per liter of dosage, this sample displays a precise, pure and fresh bouquet with some nutty flavors that migrate to a quite deep and rich, very elegant, fresh and well-structured taste with precise fruit aromas. This is still the fresh and mineral Gimonnet style, but with more intensity and complexity in the finish than the non-vintage cuvées. "Due to the dry August and September, we had to wait long to get the physiological ripeness in 2009," says Didier Gimonnet
