Gosset Grande Reserve Brut Premier NV

Winemaker's Notes:

93 Points, Wine Spectator: "Showing rare depth and character for a non-vintagebubbly, this is a full-bodied, mature-flavored,subtly complex Champagne. Has the signature toastand walnut aromas, a smooth, expansive mousse,mellow fruit flavors and a luxurious, lingeringfinish." 12/98 91 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: "Pale gold. Expansive, mineral-driven citrus and orchard fruit scents are complemented by anise, honey and buttered toast, along with a hint of peach pit. Packs a solid punch but comes off lithe and precise, with mineral-laced blood orange and quince flavors and a deeper suggestion of fresh fig. Closes on a spicy note, with repeating minerality and very good persistence." 01/15 90 Points, Wine Enthusiast: "The Gosset style of dry Champagnes is well expressed in their nonvintage cuvée. It is crisp with a steely acidity that is balanced by apple and tight citrus fruit flavors. The wine is fresh while also showing a touch of bottle aging." 12/15

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
