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, and 28% Chardonnay, with four years on lees and a dosage of 4.8 g/L. Ripe lemon, green apple, and almond rule a brisk palate, with ample doughy lees pad and a kiss of meringue through a salted lemon twist finish—a tighter, leaner style for the house and one welcome with canapés or solo sipping.Tasted: 27 February 2023Tasted by: Prices:
