When it comes to Champagne, Your Sommelier is becoming even pickier, as it is increasingly difficult to source high quality Champagne at a decent price. This is why we have chosen to come up with Gimonnet-Gonet again, which remains to us the number 1 independent Champagne house. It is not a surprise to see any members asking us for another opportunity to acquire their bottles. It is true that they elaborate absolutely amazing cuvées such as the Blanc de Blancs and the 90% Chardonnay Rosé.
Gimonnet-Gonet is one of these few small family Champagne houses which have the ability to produce a similar quality to the big names of the region. What we really like is their focus on Chardonnay, which is the main grape they use - they are indeed established on the prestigious Côtes des Blancs. As a result, their Champagnes are highly elegant and absolutely delicious. Probably the best independent Champagne maker we have come across so far! If you have to try one, this is the one.
