Gosset Brut Excellence NV

Winemaker's Notes:

In the Glass: Pale gold/yellow in colour, light, limpid and crystalline, fizzing with thousands of bubbles. Nose: An open and expressive nose, with rich flavours of plump, ripe yellow stone fruit such as apricots or peaches or even dried fruit (almonds). Palate: From the first sip the palate is rich, rounded and powerful. It shows a lovely development with a soft freshness combined. Food matches: Perfect as a refreshing accompaniment to simple grilled meat dishes in the summer heat. The light salty tang on the champagne's finish reflects wonderfully with crisp, pan-fried garden vegetables, cooked and seasoned à la Passard ...

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

A rich, aromatic and medium-bodied bubbly, full of pencil shavings, honey and candied fruit flavors allied to a moderately firm structure. Fine length. Drink now.

Pale, crisp and very fresh, like biting into a tart green apple. Lively, with a slight beeriness, just beginning to round out the sharp edges into hints of spice. Quite dry and clean, it goes well with fried seafood.

Made in a nonmalolactic style, with the initial fermentation in small oak barrels, this cuvee ages three years on the lees. It relies on the 2000 vintage, with 12 percent reserve wines from 1999. Lovely combination of flavor and harmony. Loads of mineral- and spice-tinged fruit highlight this creamy, concentrated brut. Itandrsquo;s dry, with tangy acidity and a lingering finish. 45 percent Pinot Noir, 42 percent Chardonnay and 13 percent Pinot Meunier.

Flinty at first, this yields scents of orange blossoms and jasmine. Itandrsquo;s a rich and robust Champagne, balanced by firm minerality. For sea bass roasted with chanterelles.

Gosset is one of the oldest houses in Champagne and was founded in 1584. Their entire range is of high quality, and their style emphasizes richness and depth of flavor. Quite unusual, they ferment the wine initially in small oak barrels and do not perit the second, softening malolactic fermentation. The Brut Excellence is 45% Pinot Noir and 42% Chardonnay from Grand and Premier Cru Villages, complemented by 13% Pinot Meunier. A beautiful, intricately woven Champagne with notes of pear and honeysuckle and a lingering aftertaste.
