A touch of severity

Another Pierre Gimonnet wine, opened to be drank with roast chicken. It is also a Blanc de Blanc from Cuis.

Brut Premier Cru Cuis ‘Gastronome’ 2000, Pierre Gimonnet et fils

A bready, biscuit-y nose. It has some weight and a touch of mineral complexity. The palate also has a degree of weight, but the acidity makes it a touch severe. It certainly has length and quite reasonable complexity. Even though this hurts my stomach a bit, I really quite like it for bargain (€18 in France) Chardonnay-based fizz. It will go well with food. Oh let us be honest it is also pretty good by itself.
