57% Chardonnay; 43% Pinot Noir.
The color is a luminous pale gold, with abundant sparkle and fine, persistent bubbles.
On the nose, the wine is delicate, elegant and rich. A deliciously-scented bouquet of mango, pineapple, lemon and apricot mingle with fresh springtime flowers such as hawthorn, chamomile and jasmine.
On the palate, fresh, elegant and lively with notes of pineapple, mango and apricot, followed by notes of hazelnut. Long, elegant and persistent finish.
"A soft and beautifully ripe Champagne, albeit with a steely, mineral core. It is very much in the Gosset pure, dry style, full of apple and grapefruit acidity to go with a light yeast character. Unlike some 2000s, this should age well."
"Light gold. The nose displays an array of citrus and pit fruit aromas, complicated by an intense floral quality and an exotic touch of cherry pit. Broad but racy, with sharply focused orange and honeysuckle flavors and a deeper peach pit quality. The very persistent finish features lingering spice and citrus zest notes. This should be very flexible with rich or lighter foods."
International Wine Cellar
"Gosset's 2000 Brut Grand Millesime is a large-scaled, exuberant wine bursting with ripe apricots, roasted hazelnuts, smoke and sweet baking spices, with slightly oxidative overtones that add complexity. Extended lees aging has additional volume and breadth to an already finessed mousse. As delicious as the 2000 Brut Grand Millesime is, however, I don’t quite find the elegance that is a hallmark of the finest bottles in this vintage, as the wine comes across as overly heavy. The Brut Grand Millesime is 56% Chardonnay and 44% Pinot Noir. This is Lot # L920 1113, disgorged mid-May, 2009. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2016. "
The Wine Advocate
"The deep golden color is the first indication of this wine's ripeness, its golden fruit broadening across rich flavors. It's powerful and a little blowsy, with flavors ranging from floral to butternut, to foresty underbrush tones. For veal scaloppini sauteed with wild mushrooms.
