Champagne Gosset Grand Rosé Brut NV

Champagne, FranceGosset, located in the tiny Grand Cru village of Aÿ, is the oldest known Champagne producer, with origins back to 1584. The current production remains small by Champagne standards, at less than 1.5 million bottles. The rosé is made with a mix of fruit from Avize, Ambonnay, Bouzy, Cuis, Pierry, and Rilly, usually spending three to five years in the cellars before it is disgorged as a Brut at 8g/L. The blend is around 50 percent chardonnay, 50 percent pinot noir, where 8 percent of the pinot noir is added as still wine for colour. Finally, 10-20 percent is 6-8 years of reserve wine, although the latest bottling has little included reserve wine. This half bottle has a medium red colour followed by sweet strawberry aromas with a touch of oxidation. The attack is rich and relatively full flavoured with orange, raspberries, and light spice before a mostly dry finish. Perfect with local spot prawns or a favourite pâte.Tasted: 01 May 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 40.00 375 estimated retail in select private wine shops Producer: Champagne GossetDistributors: Evolution Fine Wines Ltd.
