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.

Expert Reviews
90/100
Antonio Galloni
“The 2014 Cuvée Gastronome is already quite open, which makes it a good choice for drinking now and over the next few years. Dried pear, dried flowers, mint and savory notes all add character. The 2014 is quite attractive, even if it doesn’t have the persistence or energy of the very best wines in this range. Dosage is 5 grams per liter. Disgorged: July 20, 2018.”
