Champagne Gosset Grande Reserve Brut NV

Champagne, FranceFounded in Aÿ in 1584 by Pierre Gosset, Champagne Gosset is the oldest wine house in Champagne. For 17 generations Gosset was family owned, but in 1993 it was sold to the Cointreau family from Charente, owners of Frappin Cognac. The Grand Reserve Brut is sourced from Aÿ, Bouzy, Ambonnay, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, and Villers-Marmery, and blends 45/45/10 Chardonnay / Pinot Noir / Pinot Meunier. My bottle was based on 2017, and was disgorged in June 2021 with 8 g/L. As is the house style, this was fermented in stainless, with no MLF. Confident and classic, with a strident freshness thanks to its recent dosage. Crisp green apple, lemon, and subtly toasted brioche sit atop a lightly creamy base, with well proportioned lees buffering the shining acidity. The finish lingers with a chalky buzz. This is a classic for good reason, and a smart bottle suitable for many occasions and palates.Tasted: 10 November 2021Tasted by: Prices:
