Champagne Pierre Gimonnet & Fils Special Club 2012

Champagne, FranceSpecial Club (Club Trésors) is an invite-only group of 28 grower champagne vignerons, recognized for the quality of their wines. A Special Club champagne is different from their other cuvées, can only be made in outstanding vintage years, and is packaged in the special distinctive bottle. This is Gimonnet's only cuvée from a single lieu dit: Montagies. It spends 5 years on the lees, with a dosage of 4g/L. Very profound, deep chalk, anise, green apple, lemon pith, biscuit is all woven within layers of complexity, with alluring reduction throughout. Fantastic length and minerality on the finish. You can see the close family resemblance to Gimonnet's other wines, but this certainly stands aside.Tasted: 22 November 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 121.25 private wine shops Producer: Champagne Pierre GimonnetDistributors: Liquid Art Selections
