Lively, ethereal, mouth-watering and perfectly-balanced, this Non-Vintage Brut Cuis 1er Cru represents the archetype of the Pierre Gimonnet & Fils style. This cuvee is the pillar of the estate and an initiation into our approach. Every year, we use all the wines we require to reproduce this House Style.
This classic «non-vintage» blend with its consistent flavour is appreciated for its liveliness, lightness and finesse - with all the purity of great Côte des Blancs’ Chardonnays.
Our goal is for this cuvee to awaken your taste buds gently (hence the importance of reserve wines preserved in bottles), titillating them with its sharply crisp fruitiness. The extremely pure finish leaves the palate feeling refreshed - an invitation to take another sip!
The blend is always a combination of at least 5 different harvests: For example, the Non-Vintage Brut on sale at the end of 2018 is crafted from a base of 67% Chardonnay from 2015 enhanced with reserve wines kept in bottles: 9.4% from 2014, 8.4% from 2013, 6.3% from 2012, 7% from 2011 and 2% from the 2010 harvest.
