CHAMPAGNE GOSSET

CHAMPAGNE GOSSETJean-Pierre Cointreau assumes his functions within the various entities of the Family Group and intends to lead a sustainable development of these two companies, Champagne Gosset and Cognac Frapin.
Gosset is the oldest House of Wines and Champagne, she invites you from 3 July in her park for a moment of sharing and discovery. Jean-Pierre Cointreau had the will to open the House to the general public, especially its listed park. A superb tasting area, a real cocoon with sober and soft tones, open on the park, which allows to discover the prestigious cuvées of the House “superb showcase of our know-how and the Gosset style.”
Nice tasting on site, which allowed us to meet the Deputy Cellar Chef, Gabrielle Malagu. Of course, there is this amazing Gosset CELEBRIS Extra Brut rosé 2008, with subtle aromas of strawberry wood, well balanced mouth where we find notes of brioche and almond, a wine as we like them, frank, beautiful shade, Charmer on cream white meat as on fruit cake. We’re at the top.
Exceptional Extra Brut Gosset CELEBRIS Vintage 2008, 54% Chardonnay, 46% pinot noir, 12 years old in the Cellar, always of great amplitude, chasm of scents (pear, jasmine, brioche...) that we find on the nose as on the palate, with a touch of finely vanilla, which makes it quite naturally a table wine.
With its green label that presupposes freshness, their 2015 Grand Vintage, is absolutely magnificent, 59% pinot noir, 41% Chardonnay, charming, with extravagant complex scents where we detect mirabelle, rhubarb, candied fruits..., a very distinguished expression that can be found in the mouth, a great wine ideal on spicy dishes. We can say the same for this remarkable Grand blanc de blancs, no malolactic fermentation, with the nose of almond and quince, very well dosed, rich, of a great aromatic complexity where we find nuances of lemon and honey, a fine and fresh cuvée in the mouth.
Even for this tasty Grand Rosé, Chardonnay 50%, pinot noir 50% including 8% red wine, it is generous, fruity on the nose and on the palate, with nuances of strawberry and quince, all in structure and persistence, with great frankness and freshness.
La Grande Réserve, 45% Chardonnay, 45% pinot noir and 10% pinot meunier, which combines aromatic richness and persistence, dense on the palate, with hints of hazelnut and dry apricot, of great magnitude on the palate, a perfect Champagne as well on a chicken fricassee with crayfish or sole millers, for example.
The Petite Douceur Rosé, is a deep-colored wine, fleshy on the palate, well structured, which smells good violet and blackcurrant, all fruit, all charm.
And, if you find any, the CELEBRIS 1995 cuvée from the Les Célébrissimes range, is a rare Champagne, very warm and of great distinction, suave, very expressive on the nose as on the palate, a great gastronomic wine, superb on lobster ravioli or nuts of Saint-Jacques with citrus fruits.
