2008 is a phenomenal vintage!
No-Dosage - zero sugar added
The Gimonnet family has been in the Village of Cuis since the 17th century, working the vineyards as laborers, sharecroppers, and winegrowers. This dedication has not gone unnoticed, becoming one of the favorite addresses for grower Champagne among the savvy.
James Suckling 96 points! "Very dry and rich with fantastic fruit and depth. Full and minerally. So much depth and intensity. Dried apple, pear and pineapple. Super length."
Antonio Galloni 93 points! "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. (Drink between 2015 - 2022)"
