Gonet is a very old name in Champagne. The family moved to Champagne from the Beaujolais in the 15th century and worked in the vineyards before establishing a Champagne house in the early 1800s. Each subsequent generation helped lay a foundation for a successful domaine with the most recent patriarch, Michel Gonet, enlarging the cellars in Avize and refocusing their winemaking in the 1970s.

THE STORY TO KNOW

Champagne Gonet was founded in 1802 and since then, six generations of family members have ensured that the House has grown and prospered. In 1973, Michel Gonet, whose Champagnes bear his name today, modernized and increased the wine cellars with only one objective; to improve the quality of the winemaking.

Today, Michel Gonet Champagne covers 40 hectares of the best champagne soil stretching from South of Epernay Grand Cru villages of Avize, Oger and Le Mesnil sur Oger to the hillsides of Sezannes to Vindey. The vineyards are situated in the Côte des Blancs, which benefits from an exceptional climate, being protected by the mountain of Reims from the cold North winds and rainfalls in the Marne valley. The characteristically chalky sub-soil combined with ideal exposure to the sun and protection from more unstable climates
