PIERRE GIMONNET 05 BRUT SPECIAL CLUB 750

JOHN GILMAN 92 POINTS-"The 2005 Pierre Gimonnet Spécial Club “Grands Terroirs de Chardonnay” is really a superb wine, with a very refined nose and all of the impressive structural elements that the 2005 wines are showing today. The first class bouquet wafts from the glass in a mélange of pear, nectarine, pastry cream, chalky soil tones, brioche and apple blossoms in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and still young, with excellent mid-palate depth, pinpoint bubbles, snappy acids and excellent mineral drive on the very long and still quite primary finish. This is certainly approachable today, but this wine is coiled to spring and a couple more years in the cellar will be richly rewarded, as once this wine fully blossoms from behind its excellent structural elements, it is going to be a showstopper!"

PETER LEIM 2 STARS-"A blend of 57 percent Cramant, 30 percent Chouilly and 13 percent Cuis, this is a big step up from Gimonnet's other 2005s, showing deep, dark aromas and a great purity of character. The old-vine parcels in Cramant give their customary resonance and dimension of flavor on the palate, and the finish is marked by a chalky complexity and a firm, densely-knit structure, persisting with fine length and ample aroma. This harnesses the power of the vintage particularly well, and it should be exciting to watch it develop over the coming years. Last tasted: 3/12"
