The nose opens with the fresh ripeness of yellow apple and highlights of Granny Smith. It has beautifully subtle autolysis on the palate, deepening into notes of creamy apple crumble, Golden Delicious and Mirabelle plum, while remaining utterly strait-laced. Elegance, length and absolute freshness are inherent and quietly convincing.

A spine of chiseled acidity structures this vivid, creamy Champagne, which has a minerally underpinning of smoke and brine and flavors of Asian pear, baked pineapple, lemon curd, toasted brioche and roasted almond. Should pair well with grilled fish. Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier

This has attractive aromas of apricots, pie crust, raspberries, fresh walnuts and pears, with a hint of white pepper and ginger. Elegant, fine and supple mousse, with a medium body and creamy layers of fresh fruit and pastries. So dry and clean. 45% chardonnay, 45% pinot noir and 10% meunier, based on 2017 vintage with 8% reserve wines. 7g/L dosage. Drink now.

Gosset’s nonvintage cuvée is a fine example of the richness of this producer’s Champagnes. It is full, laden with Pinot texture and a touch of toast from bottle aging. Drink now.

The NV Grande Reserve Brut, which is 45% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir, and the rest Pinot Meunier and 8 g/l dosage, is lifted with tropical and citrus fruit including lychee, orange blossom, and lime. Juicy and medium-bodied, with tangerine and mango, it is a solid entry to the range. Best after 2022.
The color is bright and golden, the nose open and expressive, and the palate is dominated by a refreshing mineral tension.
Gosset Grande Reserve is a truly faithful expression of the Gosset style. To achieve a cuvee of this quality, the cellar-master has blended the best of the various champagne crus at the grape- harvest with wines specially chosen from our reserve stocks for their richness and maturity.
Blend: 45% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir, 10% Pinot Meunier
This champagne is the perfect accompaniment to mild and subtly spiced dishes with cooked fruit, sweet/savory dishes or tajines. A blend of three vintages, the Grande Réserve Brut is adaptable by nature — from apéritif to dessert.
Founded in Aÿ in 1584 by Pierre Gosset, Champagne Gosset is the oldest wine house in Champagne. For more than four centuries, the family has preserved its house style, a true reflection of the terroir; a textured wine that shows purity, precision and persistence.
Champagne Gosset’s reputation for quality starts in the vineyard, where it sources over 200 unique lots of grapes almost entirely from premier cru and grand cru vineyards in the Côte des Blancs, Grande Vallée de la Marne and Montagne de Reims. Long-term relationships with growers that date back several generations, allow the winemaking team to direct activity in the vineyards.
Champagne Gosset’s winemaking utilizes all the grapes and terroir have to offer and minimizes other inputs. Gosset carefully avoids malolactic fermentation, thus preserving the malic acid present in the grapes. Grower lots are kept separate until it is time to blend the cuvées, and vinification temperatures are managed carefully to preserve delicate aromatics. During assemblage, all the lots are tasted blind – there are no recipes. Similarly, dosage for each lot is selected during blind trials. Non-vintage wines are cellared for at least three years, vintage wines at least seven and 10 for the CELEBRIS cuvées.
After 17 generations, Champagne Gosset’s philosophy continues to produce dynamic, age-worthy cuvées.
