Gosset Grande Reserve (375ML half-bottle)
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
A tightly knit Champagne, backed by racy acidity, this is fresh and harmonious, with a finely detailed mousse and a delicate range of black raspberry, pickled ginger and chalk flavors, offering a touch of salted almond that echoes on the finish. Drink now through 2024.
Aromas of crips orchard fruit, pear and apricot, mingled with hints of fresh bread and pastry, introduce the latest release of Gosset's NV Brut Grande Réserve, a medium to full-bodied, fleshy but incisive wine that's deceptively generous but also structured to reward some bottle age.
Founded in Aÿ in 1584 by Pierre Gosset, Champagne Gosset is the oldest wine house in Champagne. For more than four centuries, the family has preserved its house style, a true reflection of the terroir; a textured wine that shows purity, precision and persistence.
Champagne Gosset’s reputation for quality starts in the vineyard, where it sources over 200 unique lots of grapes almost entirely from premier cru and grand cru vineyards in the Côte des Blancs, Grande Vallée de la Marne and Montagne de Reims. Long-term relationships with growers that date back several generations, allow the winemaking team to direct activity in the vineyards.
Champagne Gosset’s winemaking utilizes all the grapes and terroir have to offer and minimizes other inputs. Gosset carefully avoids malolactic fermentation, thus preserving the malic acid present in the grapes. Grower lots are kept separate until it is time to blend the cuvées, and vinification temperatures are managed carefully to preserve delicate aromatics. During assemblage, all the lots are tasted blind – there are no recipes. Similarly, dosage for each lot is selected during blind trials. Non-vintage wines are cellared for at least three years, vintage wines at least seven and 10 for the CELEBRIS cuvées.
After 17 generations, Champagne Gosset’s philosophy continues to produce dynamic, age-worthy cuvées.
