This cuvée has a bright and golden colour. The nose is dominated by the freshness and the fruit. The Chardonnay brings finesse sustained by notes of yellow fruits such as peach and Mirabelle plum. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and generous. The Pinot Noir of Ay gives its structure. Hawthorn and white flowers merge naturally. Acidity is expressed by citrus fruits.
Producer Information: Gosset
The Champagne house of Gosset was founded as a still wine producer in 1584 and is the oldest wine house in Champagne still in operation today (though Ruinart, founded in 1729, claims the oldest Champagne house title). In the 18th century Gosset joined their neighbours and began to make the sparkling wines for the first time. It was at this time that the house adopted the unique antique flask-shaped bottle that is still used today.
Gosset’s wines are characterised by their purity and expressiveness. very creamy, dry but not acidic, full, biscuity and yeasty. Grapes come mainly from premier and grand cru vineyards surrounding Epernay and their winemaking style is characterised by minimal intervention, extended ageing and no malolactic fermentation. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are the house’s focus. The house is known for its slightly sweet Brut Excellence and its vintage prestige cuvee Célebris and Grand Millésime.
