Celebris Rose Extra Brut 2003

External Review by Palm Bay International:

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. 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 cuvées 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 cuvées – before release. Gosset’s inimitable style – powerful and full-bodied, of unrivaled richness and staying power – has changed very little over the centuries. Gosset is now a fixture on wine lists of some of the most celebrated restaurants in the world, lauded by sommeliers for an exceptional capacity to enhance a wide range of cuisine. It is, in short, a legend among the wines of Champagne. Production Area Champagne, France Grape Varieties 68% Chardonnay; 32% Grand Cru Pinot Noir (including 7% red wine from Ambonnay and Bouzy) Vinification The ultimate definition of a prestige cuvée, Celebris Rosé is produced only in exceptional vintages. Rests on the lees for a minimum of five years before disgorgement. Color A magnificent shade of pale pink. Delicate, luminous and transparent, brightening at the edges with hints of shimmering copper. Fine, persistent stream of bubbles. Bouquet Fresh, with great purity and true elegance. Delicately perfumed with wild strawberry and raspberry over with floral nuances of tea rose, iris and clove. Lush, fruitier notes of sour cherry and mandarin emerge, mingling with vanilla and white pepper. Taste On the palate, this champagne reveals its full array of qualities: a vitality of structure and purity of bouquet; textural finesse and harmonious balance; nobility in its ripeness and intensity in its staying power, brightened by generous floral aromas of iris and wild violet. Full and voluptuous, with supple tannins and exceptional richness. Flavors of rose petal, lightly roasted mandarin peel and nut liqueur emerge. The finish is delicate and long, with slightly spicy flavors of anise, sweet licorice and vanilla. Alcohol 12% Serving Suggestions Highly versatile, this prestige cuvée complements a variety of fish dishes, from salmon and monkfish, swordfish, and rainbow or smoked trout. Also enjoy with rack of lamb, rabbit terrine, duck foie gras, and sweetbreads. Pairs well with fresh, soft cheeses and fruit-filled desserts.

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

Celebris Rose Extra Brut 2003 - 90 Points, Wine Enthusiast/ With its very crisp character, this is in the dry style traditionally favored by Gosset. It has delicious, fruity freshness at the same time: raspberries, a structure of pink grapefruit juice and cranberries. There is a delicious finishing acidity.

Celebris Rose Extra Brut 2003 - 93 points, International Wine Cellar/ Pale, orange-tinged pink. Vibrant and precise on the nose, displaying scents of fresh strawberry, orange zest, yellow rose and chalky minerals, with a toasty nuance in the background. Taut, linear and spicy on entry, offering nervy, refreshingly bitter red berry flavors. Deeper and darker on the strikingly persistent, focused finish, which features bitter cherry, floral pastille and smoky mineral qualities.

Celebris Rose Extra Brut 2003 - Fox Business News/ A wine to make anyone swoon. Gorgeous package. A luxury cuvée. It’s delicious. It’s every bit as gorgeous inside as it is outside the bottle.

Celebris Rose Extra Brut 2003/ Orange-pink with a lively mousse. Musky red berry and apple aromas are complemented by smoky herbs, dried rose and toasty lees. Deep and chewy, offering firm orchard fruit, peach pit and redcurrant flavors, and picking up suave anise and vanilla bean notes with air. Broad and fleshy, but with gentle minerality adding focus to the finish. There's a seductive wine-like quality to this rosé that suggests it will pair well with light red meat or rich poultry dishes.

Celebris Rose Extra Brut - 94 Points, The Wine Advocate/ I was extremely impressed with the wines I tasted from Gosset. The house style is one of finely-sculpted wines that possess striking clarity and precision. From top to bottom this is an exceptional line-up from one of Champagne’s most historic houses. The 2003 Extra Brut Rosé Célébris is another tight, powerful wine, but with air, the wine’s expansive core of perfumed fruit emerges. This is a fairly rich, weighty style of Champagne that is best enjoyed with food, but it is compelling juice even on its own. The wine possesses gorgeous length and a long, inviting finish that is simply impossible to resist.
