Pierre Gimonnet & Fils Brut Selection Belles Annees 1er Cru Blanc de Blancs

Belles Annees was first created for America, a blend of different vintages of Gastronome with significant amounts of reserve vintages to create more complexity and body. A slightly lower pressure produces less bubbles, making for a more vinous, accessible and food-friendly style. It’s powerful by elegant Gimonnet standards, with ripe peach, preserved lemon, rich mixed spice and baked apples giving the impression of development. It closes with the classic mineral texture that Gimonnet strives to uphold with a long, dry, salty mineral finish.$46 at 1st Choice.
