92 Points - Robert Whitley Wine Review Online: "It is unusual to find a non-vintage brut Champagne with the power and length of Gosset's Brut Excellence, which has the heft and commanding presence of vintage Champagne. Only the top houses can pull this off, and Gosset is one of the finest. It is perhaps worth noting that Gosset is one of the few houses that still ferments its grape in small oak casks, which has a profound impact on the texture of the finished wine. And Gosset eschews malolactic fermentation, preferring to make a Champagne that is good for the long haul. The results is a full-bodied Champagne that delivers that rare combination of power and finesse that separate Champagne from other sparkling wines. Very complex, with a fine bead. Though a bit pricey, in its niche it is a relative bargain."


Wine maker notes
The Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes primarily come from Grand and Premier Cru vineyards in A, Ambonnay, Bouzy, Louvois, Verzenay and Verzy among others. The Chardonnay grapes are sourced from Grand and Premier Cru vineyards in Avize, Mesnil Sur Oger, Chouilly, and Oger, among others. On average, a blend of selected crus from three different harvests, including 20% reserve wines. The wine spends an average of 2.5 to 3 years resting on the lees before disgorging.

Food pairing
Spectacular food wine. Enjoy with a variety of fish dishes, garnished with citrus fruit or butter-based sauces, as well as braised, roasted or casseroled poultry, duck or rabbit.
