La Cuvée Gastronome is a young vintage concept where one can find it among a few producers of Champagne. It’s a cuvée in which we look for an expression of complexity and the richness of the vintage but with the freshness of the “sans année jeune. Historically created for the restoration (for "the cutting", but also to accompany a meal), this cuvée is elaborated in "small bubbles". This is to say that its bubbles are particularly fine in order for them not to be too perturb or papillas. Here, an excellent Champagne spirit, perfect as an aperitif, which will blossom throughout the meal and surprise your guests by its beautiful freshness and elegant matter". Olivier et Didier Gimonnet
A Cuvée of 100% Chardonnay, grapes manually harvested at the time of the very beautiful grape harvest of 2006, exclusively on our vineyard of the Côte des Blancs:
- 45 % Chouilly Grand Cru (30 % Montaigu vieux et Chalet, 15% Rond Buissons) confering its elegance.
- 19 % Cramant Grand Cru (Fond du Bateau, Buissons, Gromonts) bringing plumpness to the wine.
- 16 % Oger grand cru (Terres de Noël, Brulis, Champs Nérons) giving power
- 20 % Cuis 1er Cru (Croix-Blanche, Basses Vignes, Moyens) signing its vivacity and its freshness.
This assembly presents the characteristics of a great Chardonnay wine in its youth, and expresses remarkably well "the Pierre Gimonnet & Fils style” … freshness, expression … and balance. A flattering vintage, it is undoubtedly the more "easy-drinking" of our range.

Antonio Galloni Vintage 2016 – 94P: This is a blend of Chardonnay mostly from Cramant, Chouilly and Cuis. It offers a compelling mix of dried herbs, lemon confit, marzipan, dried flowers and earthy tones. Rich and creamy, with tons of persistence, the 2016 has so much to offer.
