GOSSET CHAMPAGNE CELEBRIS ROSÉ 2007 WITH GIFT BOX

Wine Region: Champagne, France

Grape: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir

Tasting Notes

This cuvee is designed to appeal to the most discerning palate and, more generally, anyone looking for a touch of romance in their apéritif. Its freshness, with notes of red fruit (strawberry, raspberry, and redcurrant), provides a smooth, comfortable sensation that lingers with hints of pink grapefruit.

This champagne can be served as an accompaniment to carefully chosen dishes such as salmon, a strawberry and tomato gazpacho with basil, or pan-fried scampi.

Reviews

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 94 points- Gosset's 2007 Celebris Rosé Extra-Brut is a blended rosé made from 59% Chardonnay (from Avize, Chouilly, Cramant and Vertus) and 41% Pinot Noir (Aÿ, Bouzy and Ambonnay) of which 7% is red wine. This precise and focused wine displays an apricot color and opens with a super precise and chalky bouquet of oyster shells and iodine intertwined with fine red berry and rose petal notes. Pure and salty on the palate, this is sharp and precise as a knife but also highly finessed, textured and fruity, with a very discreet creaminess and chalky grip on the refreshing finish. This is not just an exciting rosé full of finesse and elegance but also a great 2007 that can compete with the very best.
Wine Spectator, 92- An elegant rosé, with vibrant acidity framing the finely knit flavors of crushed white cherry, mandarin orange peel and almond biscotti. A delicate skein of exotic spice unravels on the lively finish. Drink now through 2027. 40 cases imported.

Wine & Spirits, 90 points- There’s an old-fashioned formality to this wine’s structure—it did not go through malolactic fermentation, so there’s tartness to the fruit as a counterpoint to the heady richness. It gets its color from seven percent still pinot noir in the blend, which also points up a faint rose-petal note and some vegetal tones. Serve it with buttery pasta with morels, or a crisp roast duck. Wilson Daniels, St. Helena, CA
