Description & Technical Information
-
The Millesime de Collection 2006 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 special blend is only available in magnums with just 3713 made.

Weather: The 2006 vintage was a year of mixed weather. It began with a rainy spell and late spring, but with little or no frost in the vineyards. Early summer was positive, with the months of June and July creating perfect conditions for flowering. Although there were some storms in late-July, the overall health of the vines was great since the weather remained hot through to the harvest with spells of rain in August promoting even healthier grapes.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 65% Cramant Grand Cru, 22.5% Chouilly Grand Cru & 12.5% Cuis 1er Cru
Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay
Disgorged: 18th December 2015
Lees Ageing: 8.5 years
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 hints of tropical ripeness mix with lees character that build up to a great texture with some of that patisserie and custard layering. This feels young and vibrant with an exciting future. This is a good example showing how great Chardonnay can be from these top three villages in the Côte des Blancs.
