Gonet-Medeville Champagne Brut Grand Cru Grand Ruelle Ambonnay 2006
|Average Age of Vines|
94pts Wine Advocate– 2006 vintage
Disgorged in July 2018 with only two grams per liter dosage, Gonet-Medeville’s 2006 Extra Brut Grand Cru Grande Ruelle is showing very well, offering up a sun-kissed bouquet of ripe yellow orchard fruit, honeycomb, dried orange and gingerbread.
On the palate, it’s full-bodied, broad and fleshy, with a rich core of fruit, succulent acids and a long, nicely defined finish. Reflecting the gourmand, generous vintage, this is a vinous, gastronomic Champagne that works well at table.
It’s produced from a 0.2-hectare plot in Ambonnay lieu-dit La Grande Ruelle and vinified in barrels.
