[ Home > Gosset Brut Grand Rose Champagne ]|
A rose champagne for the serious champagne lover. The color is salmon pink, tending toward cherry. A generous assertive bouquet redolent of small red fruit, with just a hint of spiciness, progresses into a dry, elegant flavor that is fresh and lively, delicate and yet intense. A rose champagne with immense personality.
Production Technique: A blend of three different harvests, including 10% reserve wines. Aged at Gosset approximately 3-4 years in the bottle before release.
Winery Description: Founded in Ay Pierre Gosset in 1584, Gosset is one of the smallest producers of luxury champagne, but what it lacks in volume it amply makes up for in quality and prestige.
Gosset only uses juice from the first and best pressing of grapes, and unlike most other producers, initial fermentation is still carried out in small oak barrels. Riddling and disgorgement are performed by hand. Significantly, and in contrast to virtually all other houses, Gosset champagnes do not undergo a malolactic fermentation, resulting in a heightened acidity, slower maturing wines and that inimitable Gosset style – powerful and full-bodied, of unrivaled richness and staying power – in other words, some of the world’s most legendary champagne.
