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

Complex, deep aromas of spice, smoke, minerals, toast and orange oil; strong suggestion of yeast autolysis. Big, full, rich and layered; a Champagne with impressive weight and palate presence. Toasty and generously flavored. Finishes with slow-mounting, persistent flavors and a hint of unabsorbed acidity. Still quite youthfully unevolved.

Earthy and truffley in an attractive and complex way, this fairly mature offering has a full mouthfeel and rich apple and plum flavors. The long finish brings tart plums. this has the stuffing to be used as a dining Champagne, and the reserved elegance required for drinking alone or with hors d’oeuvres.

Pale yellow hue. Bready aromas have an earthy suggestion. Much more generous on the moderately full-bodied palate with vibrant acidity and tart apple and citrus flavors that linger through the finish. A structured Champagne that will improve with further age.

Scents of orange tea and flavors of orange zest fill this plush, round Champagne with a candied citrus character. Earthiness and bubbles cut through the flesh of the fruit, moderating its sweetness. Pair its intriguing orange flavors with twice-cooked pork.

This is one of my favorite non-vintage Champagnes, rich and fresh at the same time, with a serious character that reminds you that great Champagne is a wine as well as bubbles. Complex, weightly and delicious, this is a Champagne that should be enjoyed with food.

Looking for a special bottle of Champagne to ring in the new millennium? Gosset Grande Reserve would be an excellent choice. This is a blockbuster Champagne. As full-bodied as most vintage Champagnes, it offers forward tropical fruit flavors and a long creamy finish that lingers on and on.

Showing rare depth and character for a non-vintage bubbly, this is a full-bodied, mature-flavored, subtly complex Champagne. Has the signature toast and walnut aromas, a smooth, expansive mousse, mellow fruit flavors and a luxurious, lingering finish. Drink now through 2001.
