Description & Technical Information
-
Created in 1947 'The Pearl of Gimonnnet' by Pierre Gimonnet is a Blanc de Blancs bottled with less sugar and yeast to produce a finished champagne at lower pressure around "4 atmospheres" compared to a typical 6 atmospheres of pressure. This creates smaller bubbles which in turn form a softer texture or mouthfeel - Gastronome 2014 is a superb aperitif champagne or great with those lighter seafood dishes. Historically created for the restaurants for 'by the glass' to accompany a meal.

Didier Gimonnet says Gastronome 2014 is a "Champagne of a feast. We bite into a juicy fruit with a refreshing texture"
The Brut Gastronome is vinified from grapes lower in sugar and the lower pressure creating those smaller bubbles make it a less intrusive sparkling wine to accompany food. Because Champagne Gimonnet aims to have some of the complexity of a vintage Champagne, while maintaining the fresh vitality of a young NV, it works particularly well with seafood.

Tasting Note: Beautifully pure, floral nose. On the palate a racy, energetic feel with nuances of stone fruit, acacia, brioche and underlying minerality. Lovely purity, which has a long, crisp, slightly nutty finish. Exemplary Blanc de Blancs and great apéritif style. White flowers and crisp apple join chorus making this supremely refreshing as well as exceedingly moreish.
