Winemaker's Notes

Grape Varieties: 54% Chardonnay (almost entirely Grands Crus vineyards all located in the Cote de Blancs), 46% Pinot Noir (predominantly Grand and Premier Crus vineyards, all located in the Montagne de Reimes and Vallee da la Marne). Vinification: Aged five to eight years in the bottle before release. Presented in a unique and distinctive antique-style 750 ml bottle, an exact replica of the bottles in use at Gosset during the late 1800s. Bouquet - A champagne of perfect balance and great staying power. Accents of lily of the valley, honey, brioche and toasted nuts in its powerful bouquet. Taste - A crisp, graceful, rich and lasting flavor that recalls notes of saffron and cinnamon. Delicate and enduring effervescence. A champagne with great aging potential.
