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

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 100% Chardonnay from 11 different Premier and Grand Cru vineyards. Vinification A blend of various vintages: 1995, 1996, 1998, 1999. Rests on the lees for a minimum of eight years before disgorgement. Color Luminous pale golden hue with green tints. Fine, steady and lively bubbles. Bouquet Expressive and complex. Begins with elegant floral and fruity scents such as apricot, mango, peach and passion fruit. Notes of brioche and butter emerge and then give way to nuances of cinnamon and clove. Taste Full, concentrated and rich, with remarkable structure and balance. Voluptuous flavors of tropical fruit mingle with notes of sandalwood, exotic spices and toasted pralines against a backdrop of lively acidity. Serving Suggestions This refined and sensuous cuvée charms with its complex yet harmonious aromatic profile. It will complement an infinite number of dishes. Perfect to sip throughout an entire meal, from pre-dinner cocktails to the cheese course. Try it with a galatine of chicken, a flaky pastry tartlet filled with chanterelle mushrooms, crab or crayfish, veal or rabbit. Enjoy with blue cheeses such as gorgonzola or a harder cheeses such as parmesan or pecorino romano.

Celebris Blanc de Blancs Extra Brut NV - 94 points, Wine Spectator/ A rich and harmonious wine, this dry, dense Champagne is shaped by finely wrought, mouthwatering acidity and refined texture. This is high-definition bubbly, with layer after layer of kumquat, coconut, fleur de sel, toasted brioche, ground coffee and vanilla flavors.

Color Pale golden hue with delicate green tints typical of the great Blanc de Blancs. Tiny, lively bubbles which constantly stream to the top of the flute. Bouquet It is both elegant and floral with aromas of flowers and white fruits, apricot and passion fruit. Warm scents of brioche, honey, and hints of herbal tea. Taste Harmonious, complex and delicate with a great freshness. A crisp and well-structured champagne with a gentle silky finish. Serving Suggestions This cuvée, with all its finesse, elegance and freshness is the perfect aperitif. Perfect also with a flaky mushroom pastry, veal tenderloins, apricot tart, and cheeses such as gorgonzola, parmesan, or pecorino romano.

Celebris Blanc de Blancs Extra Brut - 91 Points, Wine Spectator/ This starts out rich & toasty, firming up as the bracing structure and dry profile kick in. Candied berry, citrus, ginger and honey notes prevail through the long finish.
