Best Buy Champagne of the Year

Champagne Brut Premier Cru "Tradition", Gonet-Medeville NV $35.00
The best value Champagne of the year! What class! A gorgeous, striking Champagne from the very first sip. Lovely aromatics. Crisp and chock-full of energy. Broadens and gathers strength as it opens up, moving gracefully on the palate while maintaining delicacy and focus.

From fruit grown in estate premier cru and grand cru vineyards in the Marne Valley and Cote des Blancs. 70% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Noir, and 10% Pinot Meunier from 2008 and 2007-both elegant vintages. A portion of the wine was barrel fermented while malolactic was fully blocked. This resulted in a rich mouthfeel balanced by freshness and energy. Altogether, a perfect Champagne. Disgorged on July 2011.
