Lively, airy, salivating, technically perfect... This cuvee "Brut non-vintage Cuis 1er Cru" represents the archetype of the Pierre Gimonnet & Fils style. In order to do this, during harvest, we separate all juice from different terroir in different tanks. After 6-8 months those wines are clear, we taste them and we blended wine of the year with reserve wines to repeat over the year the style we expect. To succeed with this delicate and fundamental step, the house of Pierre Gimonnet & Fils has chosen to keep all its reserve wines in bottles (on fine lees) and not in tanks or in casks. This method gives more freshness (less oxidation) and more mature (autolysis) in wines. This method is very rare in Champagne. We are the only winemaker in Champagne to keep all our reserve wines in bottles, and has been since 1982.

The NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Cuvée Cuis 1er Cru is terrific. Bright and nervy, as these wines are, the Cuvée Cuis also has a good bit of depth to round out the contours. Lemon peel, almond and dried flowers all add nuance throughout. This is an especially open-knit edition of the Cuvée Cuis, which is just fine, as this wine can be a bit angular upon release. Dosage is 6 grams per liter. Disgorged: May 25, 2018.

The NV Brut Premier Cru Cuis makes a great introduction to the house style. White flowers, spices, pears and peaches are some of the notes that take shape in the glass. This is a fairly round, approachable style for Cuis, but it works, especially within the context of an entry-level wine. The Brut Premier Cru Cuis is a blend of vintages; 72% 2008, 13.3% 2007, 3.3% 2006,7.5% 2005, 3.9% 2004 to be exact. The wine was disgorged on June 30, 2011. Dosage is 8 grams per liter. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014.

Based on the premier cru Chardonnay vineyards of Cuis, this soft and fresh wine is beautifully balanced. It has apple freshness, a tangy texture from minerality, and a bright and fruity aftertaste.
