A hands-on business, Gimmonet brothers Didier and Oliver making 100% estate-grown wines. Attention to detail sees 40 stainless steel fermenters sized for the 40 plots owned across the Côte de Blancs. The reserve wines are held in magnums, the result zesty, lively, long and pure aperitif Champagne.See detailed press review

Disgorged in May 2018 with six grams per liter dosage, the latest rendition of Gimonnet's NV Brut Premier Cru Cuis is delightful, bursting from the glass with notes of white flowers, green apple, subtle brioche and walnut oil. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, bright and racy, with a youthfully frothy, pinpoint mousse, ripe acids and a long, nutty finish. This is a lovely introduction to the Gimonnet range that represents terrific value.See detailed press review
