Karlee’s Pick: Pierre Gimmonet et Fils 1er Cru Blanc de Blancs Cuvee Fleuron Millesime 2008

Put this wine on your to-do list before the end of the year and celebrate the closing of 2018 with a delicious bottle of ten year old vintage champagne. This millesime 2008 was striking from the moment it was poured, as an exceptionally frothy bubble layer formed above the delicately sparkling, golden-hued wine. The nose had some notable citrus zing, the palate had wonderful lemon curd, pastry, and toasty notes with the lightest hint of something savory. It finished with big acid mellowed by a lingering tartness. Celebrate the season by popping some of this delicious bubbly!
