    Antonio Galloni, November 2015

    The 2009 Brut Fleuron is round, voluptuous and racy. Explosive and spherical on the palate, the 2009 exudes richness, with plenty of the radiance of the year on display. Tropical inflections abound in a deep, boisterous Champagne that feels very ripe by Gimonnet standards. Still, there is so much to like, especially the way the wine maintains so much freshness given its intensity. Vineyard sources are 42.5% Cramant, 30% Chouilly, 18.5% Cuis and 9% Oger. Dosage is 4.5 grams/liter.

    This lithe, elegant Champagne is chalky in texture and finely balanced, with subtle layers of yellow plum, spring blossom, pastry cream and macaron. Fresh, focused finish. Disgorged January 2015. Drink now through 2026.
