Overview of the Wine
Gonet is a very old name in Champagne. The family moved to Champagne from the Beaujolais in the 15th century and worked in the vineyards before establishing a Champagne house in the early 1800s. Each subsequent generation helped lay a foundation for a successful domaine with the most recent patriarch, Michel Gonet, enlarging the cellars in Avize and refocusing their winemaking in the 1970s.

With over 40 hectares planted, Champagne Michel Gonet produces almost a dozen different cuvées. However, their Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs from Mesnil sur Oger stands apart from those as it is the result of a philosophical partnership between Marco Pelletier of Domaine de Galouchey and the Gonet family. Marco is helping them isolate their best parcels and along with Gonet’s new Chef de Cave experimenting with different vinification styles. 2011 was the first release of this partnership.

Celebrity chef, Michael Mina has launched a new vintage, single vineyard champagne, Michel Gonet ‘Les Hautes Mottes’ Cuvée MINA Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru 2010. This specific vintage is exclusive to MINA Group and will be served at all restaurants (except for StripSteak Miami). Cuvée MINA Champagne comes from “Les-Mesnil-Sur-Oger,” one of the best grand cru villages in the Champagne region known for producing the most exquisite, elusive and expensive Blanc de Blancs in all of Champagne.

Winemaker Notes
Made of 100% Chardonnay from Les-Mesnil Sur-Oger Grand Cru. The wine itself is a gorgeous Blanc de Blancs, with all the toasty brioche, hazelnut and lemon meringue aromas paired with the soft delicate mousse (less fizz) that you would expect from a great Les Mesnil Champagne. The wine spent 10 years on the lees before disgorgement, which is considerably longer than the four years of aging required by law, adding significant textures and flavors, perfect for those who enjoy Extra Brut or Brut styles of Champagne.
