2018 Champagne Club: February

2011 Michel Gonet Brut Champagne Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs

Winemakers for seven generations, the Gonet family established itself in 1802. They have 40 hectares of vines in Champagne, mainly on the Côte des Blancs with their Grand Cru vines located in Avize, Mesnil sur Oger and Oger. These are the most popular terroirs of Champagne, bringing minerality and an incomparable length to the Chardonnay.

Michel Gonet, born in 1935 with a condition called dysphagia which prevents swallowing, says Champagne saved his life and thus, his passion began!

This is an excellent Champagne from 100% Chardonnay grapes— a long, balanced taste with lots of creaminess in texture; brioche, lime curd and floral notes. Vinification in stainless steel vats with malolactic fermentation, and aged three years sur latte.

 

A. Margaine Champagne Brut Rose 1er Cru NV

Villers-Marmery is an anomaly in the Montagne de Reims, an island of Chardonnay in a sea of Pinot Noir. These can be the most hauntingly beautiful and original Champagnes you can drink. The clone of Chardonnay used by Margaine in Villers-Marmery is specific to this area and cannot be found in other parts of Champagne.

Arnaud Margaine took over this six and half hectare estate from his father Bernard in 1989 and is the fourth generation of his family to work these vineyards in the Montagne de Reims. The estate was founded in the 1920s and expanded in the 1950s.

A serious and gorgeous rose with a lot of expression — based on 2012 Chardonnay with a Pinot Noir vin rouge blended in from vintages 2012, 2009, and 2007. Fermented in stainless steel and aged two years sur latte. Red berry notes with a bit of tartness, chalky minerality, and a bold finish.
