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.
Champagne is only made during the best vintages, and this particular 2006 is only made during the best vintages deemed by Pierre Gonet. The Chardonnay comes from various sites in the Grand Cru village of Mesnil-sur-Oger. The 2006 already has several years of age under its belt, and can be enjoyed anytime.
