Gosset


Gosset Grand Blanc de Blancs|Blanc de Blancs|NV

What to expect


- 100% chardonnay champange

- Green apples, white flowers and a streak of minerality rounded out by the soft apricot and honey notes.

- Pair with fresh seafood or white meats like chicken

A luminescent yellow with the slightest tinge of green hints at this 100% chardonnay cuvée which is mineral, citrus and full of energy. The oldest wine house in Champagne, Gosset has a distinct style and method of production with no malolactic fermentation and grand cru fruit which results in wines with clean fruit profiles, lovely lines of acidity and full vigour.

If you are a seasoned champagne drinker and like your champagne elegant but in possession of tension and drive then you will enjoy this cuvee. Citrus notes of lemon followed apricot and quince. Although the floral and citrus characters are what will strike you first about this cuvée, you will remember the glorious minerality and structure pulled together with a lovely driving line of acidity.

Vinified and aged on lees to eliminate all risk of premature oxidation. Malolactic fermentation is carefully avoided in order to preserve all the natural fruit aromas of the wine and to allow the wines to undergo longer ageing. Brut dosage (6 g/l) to maintain the balance between freshness, fruit and vinosity without masking the wine’s personality and purity. Aged for a minimum of 3 years in cellars maintained at a constant temperature, well beyond the legal minimum of 15 months.

About Gosset

About Gosset


One of the oldest brands in the region, Gosset has been making wine in Champagne since the early 1500’s, well before Dom Perignon and his trusty winemaking monks put the sparkle into the wine in 1668. The house started out making still red wines in the former winemaking capital of Champagne, Aÿ and for many years resisted the sweeping sensation of making sparkling wine. The house to this day is focused on making it wine first before a champagne. This is in direct contrast to other houses that make acidic base wines purely for the purpose of making champagne. One of the key winemaking techniques is the absence of malolactic fermentation. This preserves the pristine nature of the fruit and highlights its lively acidity and bracing energy. The wines therefore, benefit from an extended time in the cellar to gain their full potential. They would certainly have the potential to develop in yours. We have been impressed by all the cuvées, which recently arrived in Australia (September 2017) and the Grande Reserve Brut is an outstanding entry level champagne for a classy producer.
