Gosset Celebris Extra Brut 1998

External Review by Palm Bay International:

Our Selections of Top Sparkling Wines and Champagnes / “This is a creamy, elegant Champagne, gold in color, with a refined nose of toasted hazelnut and freshly baked baguette. This wine’s very dry attack surprises with a creamy, elegant mouth feel. Nuanced flavors of yeast, roasted nuts, and rich tropical fruit. Long, lingering dry finish of freshly baked croissants. A great food wine.”

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

New Vintage Champagnes/ Vivid light gold with an energetic mousse. Fresh citrus pith and smoky minerals complement pear and nectarine aromas, with a suave toasty character adding depth. Vibrant orchard fruit flavors are deep but lively, picking up an exotic floral honey quality on the long, chewy finish. Plenty going on already, but this has the depth and balance to repay cellaring.

Celebris Extra Brut 1998 - 93 Points, Wine Enthusiast/ Certainly dry, but not as seriously dry as previous vintages of Celebris, this latest release is in a more opulent style. There is the proper grapefruit, mineral and flint character. Add to that yeast and toast, and the wine shows fine complexity and aging potential.

/ Bright and lively on the palate with concentrated aromas and flavors of white peach, lemon curd, and toasted almond; refreshing tart acidity on the long finish. Oysters.

Celebris Extra Brut 1998/ This exceptional '98 is predominantly chardonnay (64 percent), which seems to mark it with fresh pear flavor. Other than that, there's little that's delicate about the wine, which is powerfully structured, shadowed in earthy savor, brightened as if by light glinting on stone. A contrast of nutty maturity and tense acidity, this has a gamey aspect that will pair with partridge. It should mellow with further cellar time.

/ A sheer, effortless Champagne. The effervescence of this wine lifts the flavor and heightens the freshness, all in a rich harmony. It's vinous, with oak structuring the fruit but not adding to the taste, which remains as bright as a bite of pear on a cool autumn day. Minerally and dry, this is delicious now as a tangy young wine; it has the tension to carry it through full maturity in the cellar.
