The history of the Gimonnet family has been linked to the Champagne region since 1750, but it is from the middle of the twentieth century that Pierre Gimonnet, together with his sons, began to create cuvées of great importance, based on the Chardonnay vine.
We find ourselves, not surprisingly, in the Côte des Blancs, where from the 28 hectares of property, the company Pierre Gimonnet produces grapes with which it produces Champagne with a distinctive and absolutely recognizable style. Being able to count on vineyards that reach even 75 years of age, conducted in full and total respect for the environment, the Maison Pierre Gimonnet adds wisdom and perfection.
The vinification is based on traditional methods, with grapes that are harvested manually and left to ferment in small vats.
The malolactic fermentation follows, after which a single light filtration is carried out before the tirage, while the disgorgement takes place only three months before the product is shipped.
Finally, topping up is light and delicate, so as not to mask the natural, elegant and fresh style of Chardonnay.
