Champagne Gosset Grand Reserve Bruttext

Champagne Gosset Grand Reserve Brut NV

Champagne, FranceThe Grande Reserve is a mix of three vintages and a 45/45/10 blend of three grape varieties: chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier. The winery adds somewhere between 10 to 12 percent reserve wine from two vintages that gets a full 48 months on the lees. The winemaking style is reductive and the wine does not go through a malolactic fermentation which reinforces a house style based on freshness. The nose is a mix of prominent citrus with bits of red fruits and leesy bread dough. The attack is similar with fresh, juicy, citrus, crunchy apple flecked with floral, mineral, cherry, gingerbread flavours that end in a long, persistent, refined, elegant finish. Impressive, stylish, non-vintage bubble that jumps the category in my estimation. This has the weight to stand up to numerous food types; we enjoyed it post tasting with fresh oysters on the half shell and avocado toast.Tasted: 09 December 2017Tasted by: Prices:
