NV Gonet-Medeville Champagne 1er Cru Tradition
RRP: $90 | Offer: $79
The 'Tradition' cuvee is comprised of 70% chardonnay, 25% pinot noir, both from Bisseuil, and 5% pinot meunier.
"Gonet-Medeville's NV Brut Premier Cru Tradition is showing very well, bursting from the glass with an expressive bouquet of crisp yellow orchard fruit, honeycomb, dried citrus rind, walnuts and fresh brioche. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, elegantly textural and fleshy, with ripe but racy acids, fine depth at the core and a long, sapid finish. This is a complex Champagne that sees some barrel fermentation." 92pts! - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
NV Gonet-Medeville Champagne 1er Cru Blanc de Noirs
RRP: $125 | Offer: $89
"The new release of Gonet-Medeville's NV Brut Premier Cru Blanc de Noirs is showing very well, offering up an appealing bouquet of crisp golden orchard fruit, honeycomb, warm biscuits and dried white flowers. On the palate, it's full-bodied, broad and vinous, with ripe but racy acids, good depth at the core and a delicate mousse. Concentrated and structured, another year on the cork will be rewarded by additional complexity, even though this is approachable now." 93pts! - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate.
2009 Gonet-Medeville Champagne Grand Cru Theophile
RRP: $250 | Offer: $229
This magical blend comes from (40%) Le Mesnil Champ d'Alouette site and (60%) Ambonnay Grand Ruelles, both of course, great and classic Grand Crus. Theophile detailed and impeccably polished cuvee. It combines the complex minerality given from the Ambonnay site with the rich and concentrated expressiveness of Champ D'Alouette beautifully. With extended oak contact this champagne is an expression of mastery.
2007 Gonet-Medeville Champagne Grand Cru Champ d'Alouette
RRP: $310 | Offer: $259
100% from the Champs d'Alouettes vineyard in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, a single Grand Cru 100% chardonnay site of 4ha. It's a "bull's eye" plot that gives the classic powerful, minerally but also the deep and profound flavours that make Le Mesnil so famous. Xavier ferments and ages the wine in older barrels for 6 months, blocks the malo, and then this rare wine sleeps in the bottle for 13 years! It is usually blended for Cuvée Théophile and is only ever vinified separately in the very best vintages - under 100 dozen are usually made. Gonet-Medeville and Krug are the only two houses to own vineyards in this site! It's low in dosage (around 2.5g/L), which is perfect because of the aged brioche, honey, biscuity and lemon curd characters with intense minerality. This is a searingly powerful and profound wine!
"Aromas of baked cheesecake, baked curd, baked lemon. Smoked almonds and thyme flowers. Herbal and so stony that this wine in your mouth feels like scrambling down the scree of a windswept mountain in cold rain, clutching on herbs and wildflowers to brake the fall, with a view of an achingly deep valley beneath. Broom-blossom honey in the air, struck stones smoking in the mist. The taste of old gold and quarries in the rain. Wide, owning finish. Truly beautiful, if uneasy. A wine for insiders only. 18/20" - Jancisrobinson.com

2013 Phillipponnat Clos des Goisses Extra Brut
RRP: $985 | Offer: $839
97 points - James Suckling
I'll never forget driving from a Gosset appointment in Ay, along the side of the Canal Champagne / Bourgogne and passing the Clos de Goisses for the first time. It's a majestic south-facing, steep site just on the outskirts of the village. It is so imposing and screams "grand cru" like Chambertin does. I had to stop and take a look. This is one of the top 3 sites in all of Champagne! - Randall.
18.5/20 - Jancis Robinson
"This is elegant and sophisticated with aromas of red apples, honey, pears, hazelnuts, praline, croissants and hints of white chocolate. Very fine, tight bubbles. Framed and structured. Focused from start to finish, with so much life ahead. 85% pinot noir and 15% chardonnay. 97 points" - James Suckling
