Pierre Gimonnet & Fils Millesime de Collection Special Club

Millesime de Collection is the same wine as Gimonnet’s Special Club, bottled on the same day but disgorged later, for a later release. Tasted here from magnum, the contrast is surprising. With notes of flinty reduction, more expressive spice and grapefruit and more pronounced minerality, this is a wonderfully complex wine with a long future before it. $91 at 1st Choice.
