Founded in A in 1584 by Pierre Gosset, Gosset is the oldest wine house in Champagne. It also remains one of the most prestigious, considered by many collectors and connoisseurs as the world’s preeminent name in luxury champagne.

Tasting notes
Color - Acrystal clear, pale golden hue. Persistent fine, lively bubbles. Bouquet - Intense, elegant and inviting on the nose. Fresh floral notes reminiscent of honeysuckle, wisteria and white jasmine seamlessly give way to exotic aromas of pineapple, guava and mango with hints of caramel, gingerbread and cinnamon. A trace of pear liqueur completes the harmonious finish. Taste - This invigoratingly fresh and refined champagne is characterized by rich density and volume. On the palate, delicate floral notes give way to flavors of sweet peaches and nectarines over subtle notes of spices like cardamom and green pepper. The finish is delicate and smooth, with irresistible and deliciously sensual flavors of candied fruit, cinnamon and licorice.

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
Gosset’s reputation for excellence starts on the vines. Its champagnes are composed almost entirely of grapes from Premier Cru and Grand Cru vineyards. Unlike most champagne producers, this illustrious wine house purposely avoids malolactic fermentation and always performs riddling and disgorging of prestige cuvees and large-format bottles by hand. Gosset champagnes are made with infinite care and kept in deep cellars for at least three years - and up to five or more for vintage and prestige cuvees - before release.

Technical notes
Grape Varieties - 45% Pinot Noir; 36% Chardonnay; 19% Pinot Meunier 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.
