Champagne Pierre Gimonnet & Fils Brut Rosé de Blancs NV

Champagne, FranceDidier, third generation of the Gimonnet family, oversees the winemaking of their family winery, based in Cuis. This wine, like all of their chardonnay-centric wines, is laser focused. According to Didier, he wants to have a rosé that tastes like a blanc de blancs with colour. "Powerful chardonnay." This certainly succeeds. This bottling sources fruit from Cramant, Oger, and Chouilly, with an addition of 8% Bouzy still pinot noir. My bottle was disgorged in December 2020. Pouring a pale peach hue, this rings with buzzy chalky minerality, carrying cherry, raspberry, cranberry, fine meringue along a streamlined frame, with lingering spices on the chalky finish. Smashable, yet serious, this is my house champagne for a very good reason.Tasted: 19 July 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 69.00 private wine shops Producer: Champagne Pierre GimonnetDistributors: Liquid Art Selections
