Description & Technical Information
-
The Special Club Grands Terroirs de Chardonnay blend represents a small blend of the oldest vines in the house where the grape vines are over forty years old and the two oldest were planted in 1911 and 1913 made mostly of Cramant Grand Cru 60% and Chouilly Grand Cru 25% and a hint of Cuis 1er cru 15%. 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 pressed and the juice was all fermented in stainless steel with no oak contact.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 60% Cramant Grand Cru, 30% Chouilly Grand Cru & 10% Cuis 1er Cru
Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay
Ageing: 6 years on the lees
Disgorged: Jan 2019
Dosage: 4.5 g/l
Pressure: 5.5 bars
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.
