Champagne Pierre Gimonnet Special Club Cramant Grand Cru 2014

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 singular Special Club comes from a singular parcel in Cramant, and 4 lieu-dit: 32% Buissons, 22% Bauves, 16% Le Fond du Bateau, 16% Bionnes, 11% Champ du Prévot. This spent 5 years on lees, and was disgorged with 4 g/L. For all of its Cramant Grand Cru generosity, this shows great linearity and focus, as is the house style, with a riveting palate led taut by lemon pith and peel, but bolstered by green and red apple, deep chalk along a silken, layered palate. Quite detailed, yet deep, this is a stunner now and will continue in your cellar.Tasted: 16 October 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 180.00 private wine shops Producer: Champagne Pierre GimonnetDistributors: Liquid Art Selections
