Critical Acclaim: 96 pts James Suckling.
Winemaker Tasting Notes: The 2015 Gimonnet Special Club is a fantastic vintage of a consistently great wine. Coming off the heels of the 2014 release, Didier Gimonnet skipped 2013 for the Club wines, it’s a cooler, leaner style with intense minerality. The juicy citrus and tart apple surround a chalky, saline core. Tasting it now the wine is pleasing and fairly expressive but overall more serious, structured and a bit reserved and with time the 2015 Club will blossom into an even more delicious and impressive wine.
"Very complex nose of citrus blossoms, floral honey and brioche with a hint of fresh mushroom. Really concentrated, but so incredibly focused and precise, this is a masterpiece of chardonnay elegance! Very long and extremely mineral finish that lights up the sky like fireworks. A cuvée of wines from the Grand Cru villages of Cramant (60%) and Chouilly (26%) with wine from the 1er Cru village of Cuis (14%), the oldest vines dating back to 1911 and 1913."- James Suckling.
