Founded in 1830, Champagne Philippe Gonet is located in the heart of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, literally a stone’s throw from icons Champagne Salon and Clos du Mesnil. Chardonnay is the grape of choice, with 19 hectares planted in 11 different villages. One-third of their Chardonnay sites are in Le Mesnil, with one historical parcel planted in 1929. Today the estate is run by the seventh-generation brother-and-sister team of Pierre and Chantal Gonet. They have continued to elevate the house as a reference for Chardonnay from Le Mesnil with wines of marked structure that express the rich, pure, nuanced and mineral character of the terroir of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger.
The house has built its reputation on Blanc de Blancs for the past 100 years. The Gonet family is among the largest family growers in Champagne, and the majority of their production is from estate grown fruit. Pierre and Chantal are committed to expressing the terroir of Le Mesnil through their distinct Blanc de Blancs cuvées.
