What to expect


- Excellent 2012 harvest and an highly energetic and fresh styled vintage champagne

- Historic house established in Aÿ, now based in Epernay

- Pair with warm pear, goats cheese and walnut tart

This is a vibrant and youthful style of vintage champagne, very much in its infancy and is a strong candidate for ageing in your cellar. We love the freshness, bright green apple, almond and pear looking pretty and showing clean fruit and the type of vivacity to expect from this excellent harvest.

Technical details 

67% chardonnay and 33 pinot noir  coming from Avize, Cramant, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Vertus and Trépail with the pinot predominantly from Aÿ, Avenay-Val-d’Or, Louvois, Ambonnay and Chigny-les-Roses.

It has been aged for 5-6 years on lees. The winemaking is done in all stainless steel and naturally with all Gosset winemaking, NO malo. Hence that verve and energy in the acids captured in this wine which will give this wine a long life in the cellar.

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.
