Brut Excellence

External Review by Palm Bay International:

Brut Excellence NV - 90 points, Wine Enthusiast/ Tense and crisp, this is a balanced food-friendly Champagne. It is dry, and its apple- and citrus-like acidity has rounded out with some bottle age. The acidity cuts right through to give the wine a great lift of freshness on the finish.

For four century, great care has benn taken to maintain the reputation of the brand, and to preserve a family know-how in making champagne. In 1584 Pierre Gosset, alderman of Ay and wine-grower, made still, mostly red, wines from the grapes he harvested from his own vines. In those days, two wines vied for pride of place at the table of the Kings of France: The wine of Ay and , from some hundreds of leagues further South, the wine of Beaune. Both were made from the same grape varietals Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The reputation of the wine of Ay was such that Francois the First had his own winery built there, which is now owned by Champagne Gosset. Then, in the 18th century the wine made in and around Ay began to bubble, and the Gosset family turned naturally to the production of champagne. At Gosset, most of the cuvees are presented in the old style bottle, a replica of the one used in the 18th and 19th centuries. We carefully avoid malolactic fermentation so that the wines keep their natural freshness. Read less

Brut Excellence NV - 4 stars, Restaurant Wine / The Brut Excellence is an excellent non-vintage Brut: medium bodied, crisp, and long on the finish, tasting of fresh apple, roasted nut, pineapple, and dried peach.

Champagne Brut Excellence NV - 92 points, Wine Spectator Online/ Refined and creamy, with delicate acidity that finds fine balance with the layers of poached apple and pear, lemon cake, ground ginger, smoke and almond cream flavors. Very elegant.

Brut Excellence - 90 Points, Wine & Spirits/ A robust and classically styled Champagne, this is rich and creamy in the middle, braced by steely acidity. It feels clean and polished, a fragrant wine for plump littleneck clams.

/ “Light lemon color with a lovely, full mousse. Ripe, yeasty, fresh and elegant on the nose with rich and creamy pear and peach flavors on the palate, married to perfect acidity and balance. A terrific Champagne for a meal.”
