Pierre Gimonnet, Cuis 1er Cru, Blanc de Blancs, Champagne, France, 750ml
Gimonnet is one of our favourite grower producers. Not just because of the remarkable quality of their wines, but because of their philosophy of focusing purely on Chardonnay and showcasing all the different expression they can find. Even their ros? Champagne is based on Chardonnay and quite interestingly called Ros? de Blancs (the rose of whites) as they base the wine on Chardonnay and only add a bit of Pinot Noir for the light pinkish hue. Back to the Cuis 1er Cru, this is a fantastic Blanc de Blancs, perfumed and quite aromatic, with lovely fresh floral notes of jasmine and daffodils. Perfect aperitif or on its own.
