The Gosset estate is famous for being one of the oldest vineyards in Champagne. The family traces its origins back to Aÿ in the 1480s. Drawing on its centuries-old traditional expertise, it offers us a Millésimé wine here made up of Pinot noirs and Chardonnays. Vinified and matured traditionally on the lees for over 5 years, this dry Champagne has a dosage level of 8 g/L. Malolactic fermentation has been avoided in order to preserve the freshness and delicacy of the fruity notes and the natural tension of the wine, picked up from its original limestone terroir.
Tasting reveals a bright, clear colour which unleashes a fresh and delicate blend of aromas. We can pick up notes of white fruits such as pear and white peach, citrus fruits such as grapefruit, liquorice, and aniseed. On the palate, we appreciate the tension of this delicate wine, which is full-bodied and has a particularly lingering finish with a gentle salinity. You will be able to awaken your senses and your taste buds with this superb Champagne which is crying out to be paired with dishes with hints of sea salt such as sushi, salmon tartare, sea bass ceviche or, to go another way, a green asparagus gratin with salmon and parmesan.
Gosset, whose ancestors have lived in Aÿ since 1484, is one of the oldest houses in Champagne (created in 1584 by Jean Gosset). Béatrice Cointreau passed the domain over to her brother Jean-Pierre in 2007. Gosset's speciality has become vinous, intense and powerful champagnes which age majestically. This is particularly true for their brilliant vintage cuvées and the cuvée Célébris. The house launched a new cuvée in 2007, a blanc de blancs with remarkable tension.
