Gosset Grand Millesime Brut 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

Tender yellow colour with hints of green gold, fine and abundant bubbles. Regular and intense cordon. atapricots, pair and quince. Vine flower nose with a slightly honey backdrop. Rapid and persistent note of citrus fruit on aromas of apricot, mango and fresh fig. Delicate final flavour, dominated by a zest of lemon freshness. 'Cuisine nouvelle' : traditional or regional, French cuisine or exotic cuisine Ageing: 6 years at 11 ° Tasting: at 7° ( ice bucket * Le Grand Millésime 1999 de Champagne GOSSET... The sublime sensations of the 20th century's last vintage * Each Gosset Vintage Champagne reveals the quintessence and complex mysteries of a unique year. 1999 was one of the most stunning vintages of the 20 th century. * This rare vintage, the Gosset Grand Millesime 1999, is finally available for tastings. Elaborated by Jean-Pierre Mareignier, Gosset's cellar director, Grand Millesime 1999 is a superb example of ‘terroir' authenticity and of the Gosset style itself. * Composed of 56% Chardonnay ‘grand crus' and of 44% pinot noir ‘grand and premier crus', this Grand Millesime offers an elegant but rich and racy personality.

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 Ay Pierre Gosset in 1584, Gosset is one of the smallest producers of luxury Champagne, but what it lacks in volume it amply makes up for in quality and prestige. A crisp, graceful, rich and lasting flavor that recalls notes of cinnamon, almond, dried fruit and anise. Delicate and enduring effervescence. A Champagne with great aging potential.
