Didier Gimonnet is the second generation of growers to direct this superb estate, with 28 hectares of holdings in grand and premier cru villages, predominantly
in the Côte de Blancs. The winery is in the premier cru village of Cuis where Didier’s
family has been growing grapes since 1750. Pierre Gimonnet, Dider’s Grandfather, started bottling estate champagnes in 1935. In addition to the 13.5 hectares in Cuis, Gimonnet owns 11 hectares of chardonnay vines in the grand cru villages of Cramant and Chouilly, plus another hectare in Oger and two in Vertus.

Critical Acclaim: 91 Points Vinous Nov 2020: “The NV Brut Rosé de Blancs is incredibly distinctive. Cranberry, crushed rocks, chalk, slate and white pepper are all finely sketched. The Rosé de Blancs is mostly Chardonnay, with just a touch of still red Pinot, and it is the Chardonnay that really drives the wine’s personality. Readers will find an especially nervy, taut Rosé with impeccable balance and tons
of sheer appeal. Disgorged: November, 2019.”
