Philippe Gonet Belemnita Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Brut

A Haute Couture Vintage

Origin

This champagne is defi ned by the exclusive and confi dential selection of grand cru Chardonnays from Mesnil-sur-Oger, where certain vines were planted in 1929. A harvest that takes no shortcuts, this cuvée owes its name to the fossils, the belemnite rostrums, which line the soil. This champagne is the perfect expression of the chalky terroir that bore it. The wine rests for at least 6 years in our cellars, and has an extra-brut level of dryness.

Tasting

A brilliant and crystalline wine. Its effervescence is steady and vivacious. Strings of tiny bubbles rise to the surface, nurturing a persistent and creamy cordon of foam. Its aromatic bouquet is complex: smoky, grilled, nutty (hazelnut and cashew) and candied, all underlined by a touch of acacia honey. Its fleshy and welcoming palate greets you with an elegant vanilla warmth and a buttery touch then opens up to dried fruit and candied citrus (lemon, grapefruit) notes. Its fatty, supple beginning paves the way for a vivaciously mineral and wonderfully lasting finish.
