Description & Technical Information
-
Chouilly Grand Cru 2012 is an interpretation of a unique Terroir, well-known by Gimonnet because it is completely in sync with the style of Pierre Gimonnet. The grapes from Chouilly allow us them to show a champagne with more harmony than intensity. As a member of the famous 'Club Trésors' (Special Club) Gimonnet bottle their best cuvees in the Special Club embossed bottle shape.

Weather: The 2012 weather has been hallmarked by many as very challenging but has created some stunning Champagne. Relatively low yields due to various weather conditions throughout the year. The winter months brought some frosts and hail which damaged the early stages of bud burst. August and September were very warm and this helped rescue and give the grapes a stunning maturity. The grapes were harvested on 21st September and fermented in stainless steel with no oak contact. The vineyard of Montaigu is widely considered the best vineyard in Chouilly.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Chouilly from one vineyard Montaigu 1.9 hectares planted in 1951
Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay
Ageing: 6 years on the lees
Disgorged: Jan 2019
Dosage: 4.5 g/l
Pressure: 5.5 bars
Bottles Produced: 3003
Drink: Now to 2030

Tasting Note: Very fresh with bundles of lemon and lime and beautiful chalky character. The low dosage makes it extra brut but that doesn’t come across as it has so much fruit and ripeness mixed with lees character that builds up to some light custard layering. This feels young and vibrant with an exciting future. This is a good example showing how good one grape variety can be in a region.

Antonio Galloni
“The 2012 Brut Special Club Chouilly Grand Cru is powerful, bracing and explosive, with tremendous drive from the very first taste. Bright citrus, flowers, chalk and white pepper all add a beguiling aromatic upper register to this bright, chiseled Champagne from Didier Gimonnet. The Chouilly is a wine of energy, precision and savory/citrus-inflected vibrancy. Disgorged: October, 2018”
