Gosset Champagne "Grande Reserve" NV
Founded in A in 1584 by Pierre Gosset, Gosset is the oldest wine house in Champagne and one of the most prestigious in our stable. "Lovely combination of flavor and harmony. Loads of mineral- and spice-tinged fruit highlight this creamy, concentrated brut. It's dry, with tangy acidity and a lingering finish."Wine Spectator
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.
External Reviews for Gosset Champagne "Grande Reserve"
This is one of my favorite non-vintage Champagnes, rich and fresh at the same time, with a serious character that reminds you that great Champagne is a wine as well as bubbles. Complex, weightly and delicious, this is a Champagne that should be enjoyed with food.
Delicious. Dry and flavorful, sporting citrus, spice, apple and pear flavors on a firm, lightweight frame, holding its focus through the long finish. Lovely as an aperitif, but has the structure to pair well with light hors d’oeuvres. Drink now through 2004.
Rich aromas of apple, nuts, butters toast and nutmeg. Full, ripe and intensely flavored, with a creamy texture leavened by ripe but penetrating acidity. Rich flavors of apple, minerals, toffee, baked bread and chestnut honey. A dense, thick but incisive wine that should do well at the dinner table. Finishes very ripe and very long.
Scents of orange tea and flavors of orange zest fill this plush, round Champagne with a candied citrus character. Earthiness and bubbles cut through the flesh of the fruit, moderating its sweetness. Pair its intriguing orange flavors with twice-cooked pork.
Full of floral and apple notes, this light-bodied, fresh bubbly teases with a pleasing interplay between effervescence, fruit and a silky texture. Good, crisp, dry finish. Drink now through 2005. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
Earthy and truffley in an attractive and complex way, this fairly mature offering has a full mouthfeel and rich apple and plum flavors. The long finish brings tart plums. this has the stuffing to be used as a dining Champagne, and the reserved elegance required for drinking alone or with hors d’oeuvres.
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.
