Wine Region: Champagne, France
Grapes: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier
Bright, pale gold hue. Fine, persistent mousse. Clean and clear on the nose with white fl ower aromas, such as acacia and hawthorn, set off by succulent aromas of pear. This wine is of great purity with a fresh and lively acidity. It is pure and forthright on entry to the palate. The aromas detected on the nose come through again on the palate, along with vineyard peaches, mirabelles and greengages. This succulent wine is starting to express some mature aromas, thanks to the 3 years spent on its lees. Gosset's Extra-Brut is a perfect aperitif wine or serve as a partner with sweet and sour dishes such as roast pork and apple sauce, or chicken with cashew nuts.
About the Winery
Gosset's wines are characterised by their purity and expressiveness. Grapes come mainly from premier and grand cru vineyards surrounding Epernay and their winemaking style is characterised by minimal intervention, extended ageing and no malolactic fermentation. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are the house's focus.
Since 1993 Gosset has been owned by the Renaud Cointreau family who have sought to protect the quality and character of their wines. This has led them to keep production levels moderate and to respect the history of the house along with the integrity of the region and its vineyards.
