Marks and reviews
Boasting a heritage of traditional know-how, the Gosset Champagne House has perpetuated its style over the centuries. The Gosset family has been established in Aÿ, a Grand Cru of Champagne, since the 16th century. For 16 generations, the Gosset Champagne House has been perpetuating excellence. The house is currently guarded by Odilon de Varine, the Cellar Master and Deputy General Manager. The house's champagnes are recognisable particularly due to the distinctive shape of its bottle, which was inspired by the "antique" bottles used in the 18th century.
Gosset owns plots of land in the Grands Crus and Premiers Crus of the Côte des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims. The 140 hectares of vineyards are planted on the crus of Cumières, Courmas, Chamery, Avenay, Vertus, Villers-Marmery, Grauves, Avize Trépail and Cuis.
Made from the finest vineyards of the villages of the Côte des Blancs and the Côte des Noirs, this Grand Blanc de Blancs by Gosset is the perfect expression of the complexity and aromatic richness of the Champagne terroirs.
Vinification and ageing
Traditional vinification and ageing on lees. No malolactic fermentation in order to preserve the wines' naturally fruity aromas. The dosage is 6 g/litre and the ageing period is at least 3 years in the cellar at constant temperature. Disgorgement is at least 6 months.
This Grand Blanc de Blancs by Gosset is a 100% Chardonnay.
The effervescence has a string of very fine bubbles. The colour is pale gold.
The nose gives off fragrances of flowers, white fruits, apricots, mirabelle plums, as well as a few notes of yellow lemons, citrus fruits, quince paste and sweet honey.
The palate has a nice freshness and guarantees a complex and fine wine. A lively champagne with a magnificent structure.
For an optimal tasting experience, serve between 8 and 10°C.
Food and wine pairing
Ideal as an aperitif, this Grand Blanc de Blancs by Gosset will complement scallops, crab remoulade, gougères, fish tartar, oysters, risotto with parmesan shavings, white meats and cheeses (young comté, parmesan).
