The Chardonnay Mesnil-sur-Oger Grand Cru ‘Champ d’Alouette’ was fermented and aged for six months in oak and offers an intense, pure yet ripe and complex bouquet with spicy-mineral flavors. Terribly rich and mouthfilling on the palate, this is a concentrated yet complex and fruit-intense Chardonnay with firm grip and mineral expression. No malolactic fermentation. Expressive and very promising.
Gonet-Médeville is an extraordinary champagne made by the couple Xavier Gonet and Julie Médeville. Xavier comes from a family with roots in Champagne, and Julie Médeville from a long lineage in Bordeaux, including the legendary Château Gilette in Sauternes. In 2000 they decided to start a new Champagne project. On a property of 12 hectares, they produce vibrant wines aged in barrels, which are neither chaptalized nor fermented malolactically.
