Pierre Gimonnet has long been considered a benchmark for quality in Chardonnay-based wines in Champagne. Their chalky soils in the Côte des Blancs create wines of incredible focus and expressive minerality. Gimonnet's wines have been poured by the glass at some of the finest 3-star Michelin restaurants in both Europe and America; we're proud to now offer a wine that represents the quality standards of this revered house for prices that no longer confine it to a white table cloth. The "Selection Belles Années," is essentially a non-vintage version of Gimonnet's "Cuvée Gastronome,". Like the normal Gastronome, it has a petite mousse, so only 4.5 atmospheres of pressure instead of 5-6. The wine is just slightly less carbonated than a standard Champagne, which makes it more accessible after opening and a better partner for food (hence the name Gastronome).

Wine EnthusiastThis is an impressively rich nonvintage selection, with tropical fruit as well as a mineral-driven character. It's impressive and would certainly take more bottle aging.

Wine SpectatorSubtle hints of toast and cream add depth to fruity flavors of green pear, apple, white peach and lemon meringue, while a mineral thread and racy acidity focus the wine through to the crisp finish. Disgorged February 2011. Drink now through 2016.
