You can always find clues to help you choose a top quality champagnes if you know what to look for and in this series of videos you’ll discover some of things that can really make a difference.

Gimonnet & Fils Champagne

Did you know that there are roughly 5,000 champagne makers?

4,722 to be precise, according to the official statistics.

If you didn’t know that, don’t worry. Most people don’t either and I dare say that you’ve never heard of 95% of them let alone tasted them.

With so many champagnes to choose from it’s hard to select just one or two to try for the first time.

That’s why so many people just go for the familiar option which is one of the well-known international brands.

In my view though, this is a real shame because amongst these the undiscovered champagnes are some absolute gems that will really blow your socks off in terms of quality, variety and Yes often in terms of price as well.

But that still doesn’t help you when it comes to choosing. Fortunately as I always say...

BOUTEILLES SUR POINT 50 percentI've rarely met a champagne maker who has such a clear vision of the style of champagne he wants to make as Didier Gimonnet.

It seems that everything he does is done for a very good reason and that it's all part of the master plan.

This must make certain decisions much easier and for the consumer too it makes life very simple: you know exactly what to expect from Pierre Gimonnet & Fils - Blanc de Blancs champagnes of the highest quality and nothing but Blanc de Blancs.

Of course, producing champagnes of this consistently high standard is easier said than done, but there are some things that explain very clearly why Gimonnet champagnes are the way they are; take the reserve wines for example.

In this video Didier explains exactly how he uses reserve wines. It's more costly and more time consuming than what most other champagne makers do, but it gives him a significant advantage.

In forthcoming videos we'll be looking at some other striking aspects of Pierre Gimonnet champagnes, so please visit again soon.
