Commercial Description:

Lively, aerial, inviting, technically perfect. This Cuvee Brut Sans Annee Cuis Priemer Cru represents the archetype style of the Pierre Gimonnet & Fils. This classic non-vintage assembly boasts a consistent flavor, for its vivacity, its lightness, and its fineness: the whole purity of the Great Chardonnays of the Côte des Blancs.

 

Critical Acclaim:

Wine Spectator 91 - Firm and well-knit, this lacy version offers a subtle mix of Dijon pear, smoke, fleur de sel, fresh ginger and slivered almond notes.
 
Wine Enthusiast 90 - The wine is soft and rounded although unmistakably from Chardonnay in the chalky Côte des Blancs. Crisp apples have a light creaminess as well as lively acidity. Coming from Premier Cru vineyards, it shows a strongly mineral character that is filled out by the ripe fruitiness.
 
The Wine Advocate 90 - I tasted two different versions of Gimonnet's signature NV Cuis 1er Cru Brut Blanc de Blancs earlier this year; both were excellent as usual. The most recent disgorgement from January 2015 is based on the 2011 vintage (+ 22% Réserve wines), and is very pure, lovely, fresh and delicate on the typically intense, chalky/mineral, well balanced and elegant palate. The lighthearted yet quite complex wine was disgorged with a dosage of 6.5 grams per liter. The forerunner, based on 2008 and disgorged in October 2014, was even finer and provided with a very god length.
