Champagne, France - 12%

The oldest winery in the Champagne region, so old they were around before it was bubbly! Very dry, racy & elegant.

The Extra Brut Gosset Champagne is made t has been made from a blend of 32% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir 45% and 23% Pinot Meunier sourced from villages including Cumières, Boursault, Janvry, Chavot, Vertus, Cuis, Avenay, Tauxières, Louvois, Villers-Marmery, Trépail.

Vinified and aged for three years on its lees “to eliminate the risk of premature oxidation”, well beyond the legal minimum of 15 months, the wine has a dosage of just 5g/l, with the aim of preserving the “balance between freshness, fruit and vinosity, without masking the wine’s character or purity”.

On the nose, the wine is said to exude aromas of “white flowers, such as acacia and hawthorn, set off by succulent aromas of pear,” replicated on the palate, along with peaches, mirabelles and greengages, and described as a wine with “great purity with a fresh and lively acidity”.

Gosset cellarmaster, Odilon de Varine, added: “This cuvée offers a subtle blend of aromatic precision and vinosity. It shows a complex and round character while being Extra-Brut It has been designed for drinkers who love lively Champagnes.”
