Philippe Gonet

Seven generations of winemaking reveals itself with one, simple practice. At Gonet, wines slumber a minimum 3 years on the lees, well beyond the aging requirement of 15 months for Champagne.

At A Glance

Founded in 1830, Champagne Philippe Gonet is located in the heart Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, next door to Salon and a few steps away from Clos du Mesnil. The 19 hectares of family vineyards are divided among 45 parcels. Chardonnay is the Gonet family’s selected grape variety with one-third of their holdings in Le Mesnil. Stunning lots in La Chapelle-Monthodon, Vertus, and Le Breuil produce their Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. In 1977, following a request from a loyal customer, Philippe Gonet created the Pierre Cellier line from the Gonet estate vineyards naming it in honor of his first born son, Pierre, and his wife’s maiden name. The request was for a younger, more approachable, fruit-driven style with value in mind. With two years on the lees before disgorgement and seven grams dosage, this small project has only recently become available in the U.S. – Certified HVE sustainable farming, vineyards in conversion to organic.

Pleasure, finesse and elegance. It is a slow impregnation of identity, the soul of Mesnil, its minerality which leads to the expression of all its nuances, its freshness, its purity.” –Pierre Gonet
