Philippe Gonet "Roy Soleil" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

SKU #1013661 90 points Wine Spectator

 An austere style, with bracing acidity dominating the green apple, lemon curd, spring blossom, stone and spice notes for now. Yet there's good intensity and focus, so give this some time to integrate. Best from 2013 through 2016.  (8/ 2011)

K&L Notes

This Champagne is made entirely form selected Grand Cru estate fruit from the village of Mesnil. It is fermented and aged in 600 Liter new oak casks before being bottled and aged four years on the lees. It has a super rich nose of vanilla, sour dough toast, and Mesnil minerals. In the mouth it is very racy and dry, not nearly as broad as the super rich nose suggests. I think this is one of the ultimate lobster Champagnes in our stock, and will repay five years of cellaring with a gorgeous drink. If you love Selosse's Origine and Tarlant's cuvee Louis, this is one to try for sure! (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne Buyer)

Country:

France

- 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.

Sub-Region:

Champagne

- 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.
