Winemaking - Typical for a Domaine based in the heart of the Côtes des Blancs, Gonet’s 40 hectares are primarily Chardonnay (80%) with the balance Pinot Noir. While many of their vineyards are around Mesnil-sur-Oger, they also own Chardonnay plantings around Vindey in the Côte de Sézanne and on the chalk hill of Montgueux in the Aube.
What it tastes like - These vineyards are used to produce two vintage Blanc des Blancs cuvées, the first a complex Extra Brut (4 g/l dosage) blend called ‘3 Terroirs’ that spends 6 years ageing on lees, and the beautiful zero dosage Mesnil Grand Cru, made from a single parcel called ‘Les Hautes Mottes’ and aged for five years on lees.
