Gosset Brut Excellence NV
SPECIAL DOZEN BUY … Only $64.99 a bottle when you buy as a straight dozen.
Founded by Pierre Gosset in 1584 in Ay (the heart of Champagne near Bollinger) and is the oldest Champagne House and yet the smallest Grande Marque Champagne producer … Today it is owned by the Cointreau family who are very much hands on to ensure handcrafted quality continues! Quality is this prime focus and the signature house style is about finesse /freshness and quality sourcing only grand and premier cru fruit from 60 growers (for complexity) first pressing juice (finesse) and base wines fermented in old oak barrels (more depth and complexity), no malolactic fermentation (heightened acidity and age worthiness) and extended lees ageing (complexity). No doubt about it for champagne afficianados around the world (me included!) Gosset is the ultimate in luxury champagne.
36% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir, 19% Pinot Meunier. Base wines fermented and matured in stainless steel, 3 years on lees. Beautifully fresh and vibrant. strawberry/red fruits (thanks to high Pinot content) citrus, creamy mouth feel, lovely complexity and superb balance. Up there with the best bottlings of Brut Excellence that we have seen.
Chardonnay, Pinot Noir
