Rose 1er Cru Extra Brut, NV…70% Grand Cru Chardonnay, 27% Pinot Noir and 3% Ambonnay still red wine. A delicate rose-petal hue, an ideal aromatic purity and tonic fruitiness, with just the slightest hint of dosage so as not to mask the minerality of the Bisseuil and le Mesnil terroirs.

Description

This estate was born of the marriage of two well-known wine families: Xavier Gonet (from le Mesnil-sur-Oger) and Julie Medeville (from Preignac in Sauternes – most notably Chateau Gilette). The vines, remarkably well-kept (ie. low yields and sustainably-farmed), are located on superb 1er Cru slopes in Bisseuil (this part of the Marne Valley is known for its Pinot Noir), and the two Grands Crus of Ambonnay (great Pinot Noir) and le Mesnil-sur-Oger (the heart of la Cote des Blancs, ie. top-notch Chardonnay). The dosage here is reduced to a minimum, malolactic fermentation is blocked (for vigor and age-worthiness) – all to accentuate purity of expression.

Varietal/Vineyard: 1er Crus Bisseuil, Mareuil-sur-Ay, and Trepail; Grands Crus Ambonnay, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, and Oger. 5h mostly Pinot Noir and small parcel of Pinot Meunier; 5h Chardonnay – more fermented in barrel for finer bubbles.
