Grand Millésime Brut 2000

External Review by Palm Bay International:

Grand MIllesime 2000 - 92 points, International Wine Cellar/ Light, bright gold. Toasty pit and orchard fruit scents are complicated by sweet butter, chamomile and honey. Smoky, penetrating peach pit and pear flavors are braced by a note of bitter blood orange and pick up spiciness with air. Closes firm and long, with excellent clarity and a hint of fresh fig.

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
