Champagne Pierre Gimonnet Fleuron 2015

Champagne, FranceFleuron, meaning flagship, was created to capture the spirit of the vintage, and is a blend of all of the tanks in order to best represent the year. This encompasses 5 villages: Chouilly, Cramant, Oger, Cuis, and Vertus. After 4 years on lees, this was bottled in September 2020 with 5 g/L. Rich and powerful, savoury, yet shaped, with salted brioche, savoury stones and a firm buzz of minerality. Lovely harmony, complexity, depth, and completeness, with fantastic length. Such a wine.Tasted: 29 October 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
