Gosset Brut Champagne Grande Réserve NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Founded in A in 1584 by Pierre Gosset, Gosset is the oldest wine house in Champagne and one of the most prestigious in our stable. "Lovely combination of flavor and harmony. Loads of mineral- and spice-tinged fruit highlight this creamy, concentrated brut. It's dry, with tangy acidity and a lingering finish."Wine Spectator

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

This edition of the reserve bottling, which has presumably spent five years en tirage, shows far less richness than in previous years. Tight and green, it is more like a young blanc de blancs, at least at the moment, with flavors of grapefruit and citrus. Suggests the delicious flavors of roasted nuts and vanilla that may yet develop. Wait and see.

Light nose of toast, minerals and tart apple. Well-balanced and very dry, with excellent tart apple fruit through to the finish. Oysters on the half-shell.

Opulent Champagne, this is saturated with ripe fruit, from white peach to white raspberry and lime. It’s gloriously heady, yet the acidity keeps it clear and aligned. Old fashioned rococo elegance.

Fresh and elegant, revealing a graphite and citrus flavor profile. Shows finesse and a mineral and chalk quality on the back end. Beautifully refined and persistent, with a mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2012.

Juicy red fruit flavors of fresh strawberries and cream saturate this young wine. The flavors cascade from nuts to fruits the fruit sweet the wine savory and bright. A superrich generous ros

Gosset?s reserve bottling is always a rich, textured wine packed with an appealing flavor parade of fruits, toast, nuts and vanilla. Ripe and doughy, it?s not what you would call subtle or particularly elegant. But if it?s big, ripe flavors you want, with plenty of fruit, here you go.

Gosset makes two nonvintage Bruts — its Brut Excellence and this one. Dry, full-bodied, complex in flavor, and long-lived, the Grande Réserve Brut is one of my favorites, very much on a level with prestige cuvées. Try this powerful, rich, biscuity Champagne with chicken and mushrooms.
