About

92

"Opening in the glass with a youthfully reserved bouquet of white currants, citrus oil, warm bread and wet stones, Gonet's 2011 Brut Nature Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru is full-bodied, deep and tensile, with a racy spine of acidity, a fleshy core and a long, saline finish. Mineral and elegantly austere, this is nonetheless beautifully balanced and represents a decided success in a challenging vintage."

Product Description:

The wine itself is screamingly good and completely over delivers for the money. The palate expresses seductive notes of crisp green apple, pear and honeysuckle along with lightly toasted brioche and slight honey. The wine spent 5 years on its lees so it has that creamy, beady characteristic that extended lee aging gives a lovely Blanc de Blancs. There is a splendid limestone driven mineral aspect that lies just underneath the above notes that brings this all together. Truly a delight to taste!
