Champagne Gosset Extra 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 newest release for the house, this Extra Brut reflects the cultural shift towards dryer champagnes. This blends 40% Pinot Noir, 32% Pinot Meunier, 28% Chardonnay, with 4 years on lees, and a dosage of 4.8 g/L. Bright lemon, snappy green apple, and a lick of anise lines a meringue core, with fine chalky siding leading this to a lemony finish. Quite suave, yet still friendly and approachable, this is built for canapés.Tasted: 13 December 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
