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. Lemon meringue, green apple, and chalk are layered throughout this structural wine, lit with a buzzy, smoked lemon acidity, bedded on deep chalk, and boned with chardy's inherent structure. A beauty bottle, and one to keep in mind when you're thinking of the 2017 vintage.Tasted: 18 January 2024Tasted by: Prices:
