Description & Technical Information
-
Cramant Grand Cru 2014 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: 2014 was characterised by mild temperatures and frequent rainfall and a few weeks of high temperatures. On paper it looks like a very solid vintage with good ripeness and acidity. Full flowering began in June. Summer was a combination of dry, wet and cold spells. Some regions saw some disease and Meunier in the Marne Valley didn’t have a great year and some of the Pinot Noir with its thinner skin made it more difficult for the red grapes. Harvest took place from 8th to 20th September. A year where there was a need to do a lot of careful picking and sorting of the red grapes to maintain the high quality. In general Chardonnay is the star of the vintage with some super good Blanc de Blancs starting to appear on the market. There will be some good champagnes from 2014 and exceptional Blanc de Blancs. Harvest in the Cramant vineyards took place 13th to 15th September.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Cramant Grand Cru
Specific Vineyards in Cramant: 34.5% Gros Mont, 31% le Bateau, 6% Buissons, 10.2% Bauves, 8.4% Bionnes, 9.1% Champ de Prevot
Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay
Ageing: 5 years on the lees
Disgorged: July 2020
Dosage: 4 g/l
Drink: Now to 2030
Production: 3883 bottles

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
95/100
Antonio Galloni
“The 2014 Brut Spécial Club Cramant Grand Cru is another super-impressive wine in this range. It emerges from the Bateau, Gromonts, Buissons, Bauves, Bionnes, Champ du Prévôt and Briquettes lieux-dits. Orange confit, tangerine oil, white flowers, graphite and lightly tropical fruit infuse the Cramant with tremendous complexity to match its powerful personality. The Cramant is a rich, heady Champagne with a feeling of structure that leans towards the realm of Pinot. I loved it. Dosage is 4 grams per liter. Disgorged: October 14, 2019.”
