Champagne Gosset Celebris Brut 2008

Champagne, FranceThis Vintage is only the eighth edition of Gosset Celebris Vintage in the past 34 years. It is a limited edition of 15,000 bottles. A blend of 54% Chardonnay and 46% Pinot Noir, from Ambonnay, Avenay, Avize, Aÿ, Bouzy, Cramant, Cuis, Cumières, Trépail, Vertus, and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, this spent 12 years in the cellars prior to release, with 4.8 g/L dosage. Generous and expansive on the palate, with red apple, meringue, lemon pith, and crushed chalk / stones, with slight oxidative notes reflecting the ample aging, but a wave of energy upon opening, which easily counters and leads to a saline finish.
