Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Champagne
Champagne Brut, NV
30% Chardonnay, 60% Pinot Noir,
10% Pinot Meunier
The Prestige wines from Philippe Gonet express the amiable, fun-loving side of Champagne without sacrificing the elegant family style. With beautiful aromatics of orchard fruits and brioche, the bubbles are relaxed yet precise, the texture is lush, and the finish is satisfying. The dosage is a little higher than the Gonet house style for touch more body, 8 g/l.
POINTS OF INTEREST
The Prestige wines were started by the late Philippe Gonet, crafted specifically for a friend and restaurateur back in the 70s in Paris. Named after his son, Pierre (now the winemaker), and his wife's maiden name, Cellier, the wines showcase an approachable fruity style only recently made available in the U.S. market. Made with the same precision and care from certified sustainable vineyards, HVE.
