Philippe Gonet Brut Rosé Champagne

SKU #1020658 91 points Vinous

 Gonet’s NV Brut Rose is one of the more immediate wines in the lineup. Not surprisingly, Chardonnay plays the leading role in this pale-colored, delicate wine. Freshly cut flowers, sweet red berries and a hint of aromatic spices wrap around the generous, caressing finish. The Rose is 90% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Noir based on 2008, with 30% 2007 reserve wine. Disgorgement date: February 29, 2012. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016.  (11/2012)

 Very harmonious, with lovely texture and finely cut acidity, offering delicate layers of raspberry puree, chalky mineral, crème de cassis and chopped almond. Clean, delivering a lightly spiced finish. Drink now through 2018. 1,500 cases made. –AN  (12/2013)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 (90% Chardonnay from Mesnil-sur-Oger, with 10% Pinot Noir from Vertus; 7 g/l dosage L180313): Bright orange. Dried red berries and orange zest on the pungent, mineral-accented nose. Chewy and dry on the palate, offering bitter cherry and citrus fruit flavors that flesh out and deepen with air. Nicely delineated and seamless on the clinging finish, with the cherry and mineral notes echoing. -JR  (1/2015)

K&L Notes

Champagne Philippe Gonet is a big favorite at K&L, and this great rose is a fantastic addition to their line. Made entirely from estate grown Pinot Noir grown in Vertus, Champagnes southernmost Premier Cru, this wine is macerated all together for maximum varietal flavor. Flowers and strawberry notes come to my nose first with a lovely pinot savor beneath. This rose brings the full flavor of a maceration style without sacrificing elegance. I think it is a very impressive wine, and the price reflects a direct purchase from Ms. Chantal Gonet. -Gary Westby, K&L

This is classic Gonet, very elegant; with a new twist 100% Pinot! Intense red berry fruit with a floral hint and just a touch of savory to tie it all together. Elegant and intense, that is just what I want in a bottle of Rose Champagne!

This is a delicious rose champagne. Floral with strawberries dominating the palate. The acidity brings balances out the weight for a serious wine from the beloved Gonet estate.

I have a rule, derived from many a Champagne hangover, to only drink one glass of bubbly per night. Unfortunately for my aching skull, I could not stop sipping this gorgeous Brut Rosé! Its beguiling berry nose with hints of brioche and crisp, watermelon fruit and mineral-kissed palate, balanced by vibrant acidity, make it great with caprese salads in the backyard. Just describing it here, now, makes me want to crack another bottle, rules be damned.

Additional Information:


Pinot Noir

- One of France's most legendary grapes and the grape that earned Burgundy its reputation. The parent of varietals like Pinot Gris/Grigio and Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir is blue to violet to indigo in color with relatively thin skins, and it is said to have been cultivated in France for more than 2,000 years. At its best, Pinot Noir creates elegant wines that are filled with primary red fruit aromas and flavors while young, revealing with an array of secondary characteristics like earth, smoke, violet, truffle and game with age. The varietal is also known, perhaps better than any, for its ability to translate terroir, or a sense of place. While the best Pinot Noir still comes from Burgundy, it is being produced with increasing success in cooler climates around the world. In France, it is part of the trifecta of grapes that can go into Champagne, and it is also grown in Alsace, Irancy, Jura, Savoie, Lorraine and Sancerre. Outside of France it is produced under the names Pinot Nero and Blauburgunder in Italy's mountainous regions, as Spätburgunder in Germany and as Blauburgunder in Austria. In the US, Pinot Noir has found suitable growing conditions in the cooler parts of California, including Carneros, the Russian River Valley, the Anderson Valley, the Sonoma Coast, Monterey County, the Santa Lucia Highlands and Santa Barbara County, as well as in Oregon's Willamette Valley. In recent years, New Zealand has demonstrated its ability to interpret this hard-to-grow varietal, with successful bottlings coming from careful and attentive growers in Central Otago, Martinborough and Canterbury. Chile is also an up-and-coming region for Pinot Noir, creating fresh, fruit-forward, early-drinking and affordable Pinots from the coastal Casablanca Valley and the Limari Valley.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose. View our bestselling Champagne.
