Philippe Gonet, Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs 3210 NVRegular price $75.00 Save $-75.00
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.
This is the latest wine added to the Gonet name. “3210” is this: 3 years aged on the lees; 2 different vineyards, 1 variety of Chardonnay, and 0 sugar added during winemaking. 3210 is about both minerality and pleasure.
