Description & Technical Information
-
The Millesime de Collection 2005 is the vintage blend from Pierre Gimmonet, a Blanc de Blancs from three Cote des Blancs villages, Cramant, Chouilly and Cuis. Much of the fruit is from very old vines, most of the Cramant vineyards were planted in 1911 and 1913 and Chouilly's renowned vineyard of Montaigu was planted in 1951. This is a special blend only available in magnums with just 4897 made.

Weather: The 2005 vintage was a warm weather year without complications. An early heatwave in June encouraged flowering, followed by moderate rainfall throughout summer and another heatwave in early September. The heat and rain developed berries rich in sugar and with high acidity levels, rendering 2005 an ideal year to blend a vintage.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 57% Cramant Grand Cru, 30% Chouilly Grand Cru & 13% Cuis 1er Cru
Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay
Ageing: 10 years on the lees
Disgorged: 20th September 2017
Dosage: 4 g/l
Pressure: 5.5 bars
Production: 4,897 magnums
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.

Antonio Galloni
“The 2005 Brut Millésime de Collection’ Vieilles Vignes de Chardonnay (Magnum) is intriguing, but it also comes across as quite powerful and a bit chunky next to so many wines in this lineup. There is plenty of brightness to the Chardonnay fruit, along with expressive aromatic top notes that provide lift, but at the same time slightly angular contours remain. Overall, though, this is a solid effort for the vintage. Fruit sources are 57% Cramant, 30% Chouilly and 13% Cuis. Dosage is 5 grams/liter. Disgorged: October 2014.”
