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
The Pinot Noir vineyards are located in Fravaux on the hillsides of Bar sur Aubois in the south of Champagne. About 20% of the grapes grown are Pinot Noir used for Rosé Champagne, with the rest dedicated to Chardonnay.
Michel Gonet has now retired and he has put his daughter Sophie at the helm of the Gonet Champagne House. Sophie has the honor to be the President of Women Winegrowers of Champagne and also "l' Universe du Gout en Champagne."
