Tasting Notes

The wine itself is screamingly good and completely over delivers for the money. The palate expresses seductive notes of crisp green apple, pear and honeysuckle along with lightly toasted brioche and slight honey. The wine spent 5 years on its lees so it has that creamy, beady characteristic that extended lees aging gives a lovely Blanc de Blancs. There is a splendid limestone driven mineral aspect that lies just underneath the above notes that brings this all together. Truly a delight to taste!

"Very nicely balanced racy aperitif or food champagne. Amazing persistence and some real lacy, almost entrancing evidence of autolysis on the nose. Pure fruit. Just the ticket!"

The Producer

Michel Gonet

Michel Gonet is an undercover Côte de Blancs superstar that predates most Champagne Houses. They arrived in the region during the 15th century and founded their estate in 1802 (long before Krug or Pierre Peters).

Winemaker Sophie Gonet has enlisted the help of world famous Sommelier Marco Pelletier, and has become so close to Jean-Marc Roulot that he now provides his barrels for them to use for aging. They, like us cannot believe the quality level of these wines given the price, and are committed to making them a household name just like their neighbours.
