Born into two families of vignerons, it is perhaps not surprising that Anne and Philippe Gimonnet decided to folow in the footsteps of their ancestors and in 1986 the first bottles of Champagne Gimonnet-Gonet were created. Since then their sole objective has been to produce champagnes of the highest possible quality. In 2012 they were joined by their son, Charles, who shares the same commitment and desire to continue what was started many decades ago by previous generations of the family.
Starting with 12,5 acres in 1986 the estate now covers 34 acres, mainly in Grand Cru villages of La Côte des Blancs: Chouilly, Cramant, Oiry, Oger and Le-Mesnil-sur-Oger – the heartland of Chardonnay. In addition, some plots are located in La Vallée de La Marne in the villages of Bouquigny, Vincelles, Verneuil and Trélou where the two remaining Champagne grape varietals: Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier are planted.
