"Champagne Philippe Gonet is a 43 acre estate with vineyards from Mesnil (where their house and facility is located), up to Chigny Les Roses, out to the west of the Valley of the Marne and down to the Aube. Managed by Chantal, Denise and Pierre Gonet, the family has been making estate bottled Champagne since the 1800's, and they have the old bottles to prove it! The Philippe Gonet Blanc de Blancs is 100% Chardonnay, half from the Grand Cru of Mesnil and half from the Aube village of Montgueux. This batch, which is a combination of 2004 and 2003 harvests. This is a very floral Blanc de Blancs, and makes an excellent aperitif. It is almost clear, so delicate is the pressing process from those old Coquard presses. The nose is like spring with wild flowers supported by a dough-like bass note. In the mouth the wine is feather light and extraordinarily refreshing."
