Pierre Gimonnet Special Club Oger Grand Cru Brut 2015

Product description

95 Points - James Sucking

Tightly wound and intensely mineral, this is a very serious and concentrated vintage champagne that just needs a bit more time in the bottle for the still discreet citrus notes to unfold. However, there are already so many layers of flavor on the tightly focused palate and at the long, very exciting finish. 

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The richest and most exuberant of these lieux-dits bottlings—reflecting both site and vintage—is the 2015 Brut Special Club Oger Grand Cru, a dramatic wine that bursts with aromas of confit citrus, pear, peach and white flowers. Full-bodied, layered and enveloping, it's broad and fruit-driven, even if it isn't as fine-boned or elegant as the Cramant and Chouilly Special Clubs. 

92 Points - Vinous

The 2015 Brut Special Club Oger Grand Cru is an attractive, powerful wine. Citrus peel, white flowers, chalk and the savory notes typical of so many 2015 are nicely laced together. I would give the 2015 a year or two in the cellar to come together, as it is a bit disjointed at present, but I would not wait too long, as flavors that are savory today may very well develop into more overpowering vegetal notes over time. The Oger is a blend taken from the Terres de Noeel, Brulis, Champ Nerons and Fondy lieux-dits.
