Extra Brut, 1er Cru. This is a zero dosage cuvee from Pierre Gimonnet built on the fantastic 2008 vintage. The nose shows a cream, hazelnut, red apple skin and wet river stone aroma set. The palate is soft and light with a taunt seam of minerality running through flavors of cream, stone fruits, apples, citrus and light hazelnuts. Delicious taunt Champagne! D&M Tasting Notes
The 2008 Extra-Brut Non-Dosé Oenophile is bristling with energy and tension, but it also lacks a bit of mid-palate pliancy, which leads me to wonder if the zero dosage style is truly optimal in this vintage. Lemon oil, white flowers, sage and chalk are all pushed forward. The 2008 is bracing and classically austere, with notable intensity throughout. Vineyard sources are 33.5 % Cramant, 32.5% Chouilly, 22% Cuis, 10% Oger and 2% Vertus. Disgorged: June 2015. 91 Points Antonio Galloni, November 2015.
