Gimonnet Gonet Carat du Mesnil

Much more controlled grip on the front palate. Much brighter and harder apple notes. Good finish. Smokey, fishy notes, stoney, oyster shell.

Gimonnet Gonet Brut Tradition

There is a split on the palate between the pinot noir and the chardonnay. The red fruit really lingers on the end.

Gimonnet Gonet Brut Rose

Lovely faint salmon pink. Feminine front end with a serious red fruit and crisp apple attack at the finish. Lovely complexity on the mid-late palate.

Gimonnet Gonet Prestige

More fleshy on the nose. Good structure with a touch of toastiness. Dry toast. Tight notes of Granny Smith apples. Mousse a bit cumbersome. Good steely finish with grassy notes.

Gimonnet Gonet Brut Or

Nice fleshy apple notes. Touch of oxidation, lean palate. Very dry. There is a saltiness to the end palate.

Gimonnet Gonet

Producer in Mesnil sur Oger with vineyards in all the great villages of the Cote des Blancs. The wines are fresh and fruity although I sensed a hint of oxidation on my last tasting of Cuvee d’Or. The rest of the production has a green stalkyness to them.

There is nothing outwardly exiting about these wines and I must admit I feel I want a touch more given the address…
