Champagne Pierre Gimonnet Fleuron 2017

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 disgorged in April 2022, with 5 g/L. This year is showing some age at this stage, with golden apple, brioche, baked pear across an expansive, turning oxidative palate, finishing with a stony shimmer. Chardy's backbone is ever present, but this years' edition is shaded with a softer, tired frame. Drink your 2017s now.Tasted: 20 May 2023Tasted by: Prices:
