Gosset Champagne Brut Grande Réserve 2012
Bright yellow color and a highly fragrant nose that has a spicy bouquet of candied apple, pear, baked bread and brown butter makes Gosset Champagne Brut Grande Réserve a feast for the senses in the glass. On the palate you get caramel and smoke hints accenting the bread dough, stone fruit and honey flavors. Great depth and a zesty pear finish make for an excellent drinking experience.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
