92 Points Robert Parker

The 2008 Brut Chardonnay Premier Cru Cuvee Gastronome is a blend of fruit from Chouilly, Cuis, Cramant, Oger and Vertus. Here the fruit begins to take on slightly greater textural richness and depth. Crisp yellow-fleshed fruits, flowers, almonds and spices are all woven together beautifully. The 2008 stands out for its inner perfume, sweetness and inviting personality. Disgorgement date: January 17, 2012. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018.

This latest instantiation of what has become his signature blend, featuring lower-than-standard pressure, Gimonnet’s 2008 Brut Blanc de Blancs Cuvee Gastronome reflects a wide range of sites, more than half in (grand cru-rated) Chouilly and Oger. Stalk celery and cucumber, crabapple and lemon combine for an at once briskly refreshing and metaphorically cooling performance, wreathed in bittersweet perfume of iris and tinged with saliva-liberating salinity that renders a long, caressing finish compulsively next-sip-inducing.

95 Points Tyson Stelzer

A strong representation of grand cru Cote des Blancs terroirs makes Gastronome a highlight of the Gimonnet line, and the great vintage of 2008 makes this the finest since 2002. Such is the breathtaking delicacy of chardonnay from this vintage that experiencing this wine is akin to the sensation of stepping outside and taking your first breath on a brisk winter morning. It’s coiled and focused, an epiphany of freshness and a mouth full of chalky minerality that proclaims the revered soils of the northern Cote des Blancs. Drink 2013 - 2018.
