2018 Pierre Gimonnet & Fils Brut 1er Cru Blanc de Blancs Gastronome
Cépage: Chardonnay (100%)
Size: 750 ml
Rating(s): 93 (JD); 91 (JS)
" The 2018 Champagne Cuvée Gastronome Brut has a bit sunnier feel, with primary fruit aromas of Williams pear, lime blossoms, candy, and green apple. The palate is full and rounded, with a coarser mineral texture throughout compared to the other cuvée. It has wonderful salinity and takes on a more savory expression that I find quite attractive. This feel slike it has the structure to carry on for 2-3 decades to come."
