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!
"The 2014 Champagne Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Mesnil sur Oger is floral with lime blossom, crushed chalk, and fresh bread dough. Its elegance is seamlessly integrated to the palate, with a linear feel, but it does not come across as austere. It is medium-bodied, with a soft stony texture, pure green apple, and white flowers, and a long finish. This is a lovely, finessed wine to enjoy over the next 15 or more years."

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.
It's important to remember that taste is subjective, and personal preferences play a significant role.
