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

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.

Grand Blanc de Blancs Brut - 95 points, WineReviewOnline.com/ Gosset has introduced a new Blanc de Blancs bubbly, the multi-vintage Grand Blanc de Blancs, and as with everything Gosset, it is the epitome of elegance and finesse. A 100 percent Chardonnay cuvee, this beautifully structured Champagne is very dry (about 3.5 grams per liter of sugar, which is extremely low) and crisp, exhibiting notes of citrus and brioche, with a fine, precise bead. The vintages used in the new cuvee are 2003, 2004 and 2005. A bit pricey, but with this particular bubbly, you get what you pay for.

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 namein luxury champagne. Gosset’s reputation for excellence starts on the vines. Its champagnes are composed almost entirely of grapes from Premier Cru and GrandCru 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 including Avize, Chouilly, Cramant, Le Mesnil Sur Oger, and Oger, among others. Vinification A blend of various execeptional vintages: 1995, 1996, 1998, 1999. The blend rests on the lees for a minimum of nine years before disgorgement. 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.
