The 1er Cru Blanc de Blancs is made of Chardonnay from Premier Cru sites in Cuis. What’s on the market now was disgorged in August 2016, and this will be here through the summer. It’s 70% 2013, 6% 2012, 9% of 2011, 10% of 2010 and 5% of 2009. It’s both classy and classic young Gimonnet; mineral, stylish and needing only time to shed the youthful brashness that partly obscures the rich toasty flowery fruit. Its successor is 65% 2014, 12% 2013, 10% 2012, 8% of 2011 and 5% of 2010. Disgorged in Feb 2017, Didier feels it’s a quick developer.  A subtle oxidative note, while fellow tasters spoke of “lactic” “caramel” and “butterscotch.” Didier theorizes it’s the ’12 in the blend. —Terry Theise
