Pierre Gimonnet has long been considered a benchmark for quality in Chardonnay-based wines in Champagne. Thier chalky soils in the Cotes des Blancs create wines of incredible focus and epressive minerality.
Cimoneet's wines have been poured by the glass at some of the finest 3-star Michelin restaurants in both Europe and America. We are proud to now offer a wine that represents the quality standards of this revered house for prices that no longer confine it ti a white table cloth.
The Selection Belles Annees is essentially a non-vintage version of Gimonnet's Cuvee Gastronome. Like the normal Gastronome, it has a petite mousse, so only 4.5 atmosphere of pressure in stead of 5 to 6. The wine is just slightly less carbonated than a standard
Champagne, which makes it more accessible after opening and a better partner for food (hence the name Gastronome).
The winery is located in Cuis.
