The new release of Philippe Gonet non-vintage Brut Rosé is composed of a blend of ninety percent chardonnay and ten percent pinot noir, which is not too surprising, given that the family domaine is based in the heart of chardonnay country in Mesnil-sur-Oger. The wine spends three years in the cellars prior to release and is a lovely, pale salmon color. The nose is a pretty blend of strawberries, tangerine, brioche, chalky soil tones and spring flowers. On the palate the wine is medium-full, bright and well-balanced, with solid depth at the core, frothy mousse and nice length and grip on the high-toned, but fairly complex finish. Like all of the non-vintage bottlings that I sampled from Monsieur Gonet, this is a stylish, aperitif weight bottle of bubbly. 2016-2025.
