COMPLEX, CITRUS, FRESH
This elegant Champagne is a testament to the terroir & wine making skill of Philippe. Just 3000 bottles are produced of this elegant fizz. The Gamet’s family story. Since 1999, Philippe Gamet keeps rising his reserve wines. Vinified and aged in oak for 40-45 months, blended with both banks of the Valley. The cuvée offers complexity and richness. Old reserve wines are highlighted throughout with fine notes of oxidation on the palate, followed by a long freshness brought by the wine of the year. Notes of yellow citrus fruits; the work with oak barrels brings concentration and reinforces the tensions of the wine. 80% reserve wines and 20% from 2014. A triumph to create such a complex cuvee using Meunier which is testament to the terroir and Philippes skill.
A four-generation family owned domain, the family Gamet produces its wine in an intimate champagne estate located in Mardeuil. Joined by their children, Fabienne & Philippe, Gamet offer champagnes with strong characters. They are certified with Sustainable Viticulture in Champagne and the High Environmental Value certification. Their vineyard spreads itself from the Left Bank to the Right Bank of the river, from Fleury-la-Rivière to Mardeuil. Two terroirs with very different types of soil and this is showcased beautifully with the Rive Gauche and Rive Droite cuvées; named after the banks. The soils of the valley give powerful aromas, great fragrant texture as well as a beautiful roundness, initiating a long taste on the palate. Rich with diversity and various micro-climates, the Marne Valley has been unrecognized for a very long time. Today, led by the work of the winegrowers, we are witnessing a renaissance. These are champagnes of a great freshness and intense roundness - particularly appreciated in gastronomy.
