Winemaker Notes

Pale yellow robe with a persistent effervescence of tiny, lively bubbles leaving a cordon of creamy and lasting mousse. Its attack has a nose of toasted pastry that evolves into a delicate butter aroma and floral notes of iris and lime-tree. On the palate, supple and ripe fruit as well as candied apricot and peach are topped with a touch of grapefruit and lime enhancing the freshness and length of its finish.

Wine Spectator
A subtle thread of ground cardamom and clove spice unravels through flavors of glazed apricot, spring blossom, candied lemon zest, pastry and almond cream. Shows lovely balance, with a soft, creamy mousse caressing the finish. Drink now through 2020. 1,000 cases made.
W&S 90
Wine & Spirits
The name stands for three years of aging, two terroirs (Le Mesnil-sur-Oger in the Côte des Blancs and Montgueux in the Aube), one variety (chardonnay) and zero dosage. While many of winemaker Pierre Gonet’s other cuvées are creamy and rich, this one is nakedly chalky. And while it feels a little rough-hewn at first, that abrasive earthiness relents with air, the wine becoming more transparent, focused on orange zest and bright acidity. Pour it with a plateau de fruits de mer. Domaine Select Wine Estates, NY

Philippe Gonet, France
Philippe Gonet Winery Image
Founded in 1830, Champagne Philippe Gonet is located in the heart of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, literally a stone’s throw away from Champagne Salon and a few steps away from Clos du Mesnil. The 23 hectares of family vineyards are divided among 47 parcels. Chardonnay is the Gonet’s select grape variety comprising 19 hectares planted in 11 different villages. One-third of their Chardonnay sites are in Le Mesnil, with one historical parcel located near the village entrance that was planted in 1929.

In the early 1970s parcels in La Chapelle-Mothodon and Le Breuil were acquired for Pinot Noir. In 1990, the seventh generation brother and sister team of Pierre and Chantal Gonet took control of their family estate when they were only 22 and 23 years old after the sudden death of their father. They have succeeded in continuing to elevate the house as a reference for Chardonnay from Le Mesnil through wines of marked character, minerality, and structure that express the rich, pure, nuanced and mineral character of the terroir of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger.

Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, the region, Champagne, is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to bear the label, ‘Champagne’, a sparkling wine must originate from this northeastern region of France—called Champagne—and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide.

Well-drained, limestone and chalky soil defines much of the region, which lend a mineral component to its wines. Champagne’s cold, continental climate promotes ample acidity in its grapes but weather differences from year to year can create significant variation between vintages. While vintage Champagnes are produced in exceptional years, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years in order to produce Champagnes that maintain a consistent house style.

With nearly negligible exceptions, . These can be blended together or bottled as individual varietal Champagnes, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, elegance, lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier, provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while ones comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’

A term typically reserved for Champagne and Sparkling Wines, non-vintage or simply “NV” on a label indicates a blend of finished wines from different vintages (years of harvest). To make non-vintage Champagne, typically the current year’s harvest (in other words, the current vintage) forms the base of the blend. Finished wines from previous years, called “vins de reserve” are blended in at approximately 10-50% of the total volume in order to achieve the flavor, complexity, body and acidity for the desired house style. A tiny proportion of Champagnes are made from a single vintage.

There are also some very large production still wines that may not claim one particular vintage. This would be at the discretion of the winemaker’s goals for character of the final wine.
