Description & Technical Information
-
Cramant Grand Cru 2012 is an interpretation of a unique Terroir, considered by the Gimonnet family as the best TERROIR of their Domaine, because all the vines are located in the heart of Terroir and are really old; 80% are 50+years and two of the vineyards “Fond du Bateau” and “Buissons” were planted in 1911 and 1913. As a member of the famous 'Club Trésors' (Special Club) Gimonnet bottle their best cuvees in the Special Club embossed bottle shape.

"Our favourite terroir. Silky elegance and depth" - Didier Gimonnet

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. Harvested on 19th & 20th September 2012 and fermented in stainless steel with no oak contact.

Technical Information:

Dosage: 4 g/l
Pressure: 5.5 bars

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.

Expert Reviews
93/100
Antonio Galloni
“The 2012 Brut Special Club Cramant Grand Cru is decidedly floral and lifted in feel in its first impression, and then really blossoms through with textural intensity on the mid palate and finish. Chalk, white pepper, mint, crushed rocks and tangerine peel all run through this focused, taut Champagne. The Cramant Special Club is both riper and creamier than the Chouilly tasted alongside it. Disgorged: October, 2018”
