Champagne Gosset Grand Rosé Bruttext

Champagne Gosset Grand Rosé Brut NV

Champagne, FranceThe Grand Rosé is a 56/35/9 mix of chardonnay, pinot noir and Bouzy and Ambonnay still red wines (9 percent) plus an average of 25 percent of reserve wines to add depth and complexity. The balance sets the stage to highlight the fresh creamy fruits reminiscent of persimmons, strawberries and raspberries with just a dusting of spice. The classic match is foie gras. Gosset, located in the minuscule Grand Cru village of Aÿ, is the oldest known Champagne producer, with origins back to 1584. Since 1994 the Frapin Cognac house has owned Gosset with Jean Pierre Cointreau running both companies. Current production is small at less than 1.4 million bottles. All Gosset champagnes are RD or ‘recently disgorged,’ normally with a high proportion of Chardonnay and without malolactic fermentation.Tasted: 09 December 2017Tasted by: Prices:
