2008 Champagne Philippe Gonet “Belemnita” Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru, Champagne, France

Brilliant gold in color with very fine, consistent mousse. The nose is with honey, nuts, grilled almond, toasted aromas. The palate is long and reveals more maturity with vertical citrus fruits notes. It has the potential to surprise you if you decant it.



100% Chardonnay from 2 Parcels at Le Mesnil-surOger: Mont-Joly planted in 1960 et Les Hauts-jardins planted in 1929 Aging: Stainless steel with malolactique fermentation.


Gonet is one of the most distinguished of the Champagne houses, located in the Grand Cru village of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger in the Cote des Blancs. Pierre and Chantal, brother and sister, took the reins of the seventh generation of winemaking at the ages of just 22 and 23. Their father, Philippe Gonet, had passed, and so the siblings had responsibilities thrust on their shoulders, growing closer in the process despite contrasting personalities. While they could have easily sunk, they not only were able to swim, but soared. Today, Pierre oversees winemaking and the vineyards while Chantal is the face of Gonet internationally.
