Gosset Champange

Gosset is the oldest wine house in Champagne. It was founded in Aÿ in 1584 by Pierre Gosset an alderman and wine-grower who made mostly red wines. At that time the region’s still wines competed for pride of place on the best tables of France with the wines of Beaune which were made from the same grape varieties as they are today. In the 18th century Gosset joined their neighbours and began to make the sparkling wines for the first time. It was at this time that the house adopted the unique antique flask-shaped bottle that is still used today. Gosset’s wines are characterised by their purity and expressiveness. Grapes come mainly from premier and grand cru vineyards surrounding Epernay and their winemaking style is characterised by minimal intervention, extended ageing and no malolactic fermentation. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are the house’s focus. Since 1993 Gosset has been owned by the Renaud Cointreau family who have sought to protect the quality and character of their wines. This has led them to keep production levels moderate and to respect the history of the house along with the integrity of the region and its vineyards.
A deep yellow colour. The nose is floral with hints of white flowers of acacia, jasmine, and mimosa. There are fruit notes of pear and Mirabelle plum. The bouquet is rich and heady, vinous but airy. The palate is characterised by marked pastry aromas: pear cake, vanilla madeleine, sponge finger, sabayon. The finish is long and elegant.
Superb as an aperitif or to accompany light dishes including scallops, grilled fish and even light dishes such as poultry.
