Champagne Gosset Grand Reserve Brut hinges on its equal parts blend of Chardonnay (45%) and Pinot Noir (45%)with a hint of Meunier (10%) to maintain its mantle as one of the best non-vintage Champagnes available and equal to many prestige cuvee's. The wine spends 3-5 years in bottle before release giving the wine a wonderful richness and texture. A core of dark black Pinots fruits dominate while the Chardonnay imparts a striking minerality on the finish. Sourced from Sites across Aÿ, Bouzy, Ambonnay, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Villers-Marmery. We feel this over cuvee delivers for its price, and is also worthy of further cellaring.
Its structure of absolute subtlety and distinction is the perfect expression of the Champagne Gosset style.
Vinified and aged on lees to eliminate all risk of premature oxidation. Malolactic fermentation is carefully avoided in order to preserve all the natural fruit aromas of the wine and to allow the wines to undergo longer ageing. Brut dosage (8 g/l) to maintain the balance between freshness, fruit and the body of the wine.
Aged for a minimum of 3 years in the cellar at a constant temperature, well beyond the legal minimum of 15 months.
APPEARANCE : Luminous and golden.
NOSE : Freshness and fruit aromas. The Chardonnay offers a delicacy underscored by aromas of yellow fruit such as peach and Mirabel plum.
PALATE : On the palate the Pinot Noir from Aÿ has a magnificent structure. Hawthorn and white blossom intertwine harmoniously, with a finely-honed acidity carried by notes of citrus.
