|A truly special Special Club, this is stunning and rightly labeled “Grands Terroirs de Chardonnay” as this hails from established plots of old vine vineyards among the great Chardonnay plots of Champagne Oger and Cramant from the Chardonnay headwaters of the Côte des Blancs and the Gimonnet’s very own Cuis. Starchy tangerine and chalky citrus open onto pastry notes and a haunting minerality that holds your focus long into the finish.

Gimonnet’s 2005 Brut Special Club is made predominantly from old vines in Cramant, Oger and Cuis. It offers better balance than the 2005 Non Dose, as a little dosage, in this case 5 grams per liter, unleashes the aromatics and fruit to a considerable degree. Pears, pastry, lemon oil, almonds and exotic flowers all meld together nicely. The 2005 Special Club remains tightly wound and vibrant, with none of the awkward notes that are found in so many wines in this vintage. Disgorgement date: July 30, 2012.
