Description & Technical Information
-
Chouilly Grand Cru 2014 is an interpretation of a unique Terroir, well-known by Gimonnet because it is completely in sync with their style. 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: 2014 saw a warm and dry spring leading to many predicting a later harvest in August, July was damp and cooler so the ripening process was slowed. September was much warmer and Chardonnay shinned in 2014 with all picking done in around ten days. Harvest in Montaigu vineyard was 16-20th September. The vineyard of Montaigu is widely considered the best vineyard in Chouilly.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Chouilly - One vineyard Montaigu 1.9 hectares planted in 1951
Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay
Lees Ageing: 5 years
Disgorged: July 2020
Dosage: 4 g/l
Pressure: 5.5 bars
Bottles Produced: 3883
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 from one vineyard.

Expert Reviews
94/100
Antonio Galloni
“Ample, broad and dramatic in scale, the 2014 Brut Spécial Club Chouilly Grand Cru shows just how well many wines turned out in a vintage that was not highly regarded at the time. Lemon confit, marzipan, chamomile and light pastry open effortlessly in the glass. The Chouilly is a big wine, but it remains translucent in feel, with plenty of cut driving through to the finish. Didier Gimonnet makes the Chouilly from the Montaigu lieu-dit, which has vines that he planted as far back as 1951. Readers won't want to miss this super-distinctive, substantial Champagne. Dosage is 4 grams per liter. Disgorged: October 14, 2019.”

William Kelley
“Disgorged in October 2019 with four grams per liter dosage, Gimonnet's 2014 Extra-Brut Special Club Chouilly Grand Cru is showing superbly, offering up aromas of crisp green orchard fruit, nougat, apple blossom and white peach. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, with a pillowy core of crisp, vibrant fruit that's complemented by a pinpoint mousse, this is elegant and concentrated, with a long, beautifully defined finish.”
