Millésime 2008 La Guette 1er Cru

Gimonnet-Oger

$94

Our Two Cents

SEE: Metallic gold 

SMELL: Classic pear and baked apple with nutty notes and a shave of lemon zest

TASTE: Shortbread, butter cookies and candied caramel with fresh acidity, minerality and white floral notes

PAIR: This bottle plays well with a rustic snack of roasted vegetables, thinly sliced jamón and hard, crumbly cheeses. Or pair it with Filipino Spanish bread to complement the snack’s sweet buttery filling.

A tribute to Jean Luc’s patient, reserved approach to Champagne-making, his Millésime 2008 La Guette Premier Cru has just finally reached maturity. Complex, elegant and finely mineral, it offers a snapshot of 2008 in Champagne. A classic cool, rainy spring followed by summer storms and a cool, windy fall led the grapes through a slow and gentle ripening, which resulted in fine, fresh wine with structure. Jean Luc made this particular cuvée with grapes from the “La Guette,” a plot in the Premier Cru village of Cuis.
