Founded in Ay in 1584 Champagne Gosset is the oldest wine house in Champagne and has been owned by the Renaud Cointreau family since 1993. Continued excellence is ensured by Odilon de Varine, Gosset Cellar master. Golden yellow with delicate green tints typical of the great Blanc de Blancs. Very fine bubbles. It is both mineral and floral with aromas of flowers and white fruits, apricot and Mirabelle plum. Very light notes of lemon, citrus fruits, crystallized quince and honey. Harmonious, complex and delicate with a great freshness. A crisp and well-structured champagne with a gentle silky finish.
Perfect also with seafood, especially scallops, oysters and also grilled fish, sushi, and crab dishes. Can be aged for up to 4 years.
Gosset's lemon-yellow NV Grand Blanc de Blancs – 100% Chardonnay blend sourced in Avize, Chouilly, Cramant, Villers-Marmery and Trépailopens – opens with a very clear, precise and concentrated bouquet. It is also pure and pretty coolish/greenish with chalk, herbs and lemon peels – really exciting! Very mineral and complex on the palate, this is a pure and finesse-full, but firmly structured and persistent Champagne with marjoram flavors in the long, stringent, tension-filled finish. This is a young and vital but serious, tightly woven and expressive, medium-bodied Champagne. It has an intense and deep taste, with excellent ageing potential. Impressive.
