ABOUT THIS WINE

The latest addition to our family saw its first day in June 2009. It is an authentic cuvée without artifice. Its grapes are from 2 plots : one half from Le Mesnil and the other half from Montgueux, the best cru of the Aube. On this magnificent hill, ripe Chardonnay fruit comes to life. No sugar or sulphites are added at the dosage stage, revealing the subtleties of a Chardonnay in its purest form.

ABOUT THIS PRODUCER

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.
