Gosset Champagne Extra Brut NV France
A bright, pale gold hue. Fine, persistent mousse. Clean and clear on the nose with white flower aromas, such as acacia and hawthorn, set off by succulent aromas of pear.
FOR OVER FOUR CENTURIES "THE OLDEST WINE HOUSE IN CHAMPAGNE: AŸ 1584" HAS FORGED A STYLE THAT CELEBRATES FRENCH ART DE VIVRE.
Cellar master Odilon de Varine comments: "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."
His wine is of great purity with a fresh and lively acidity. It is pure and forthright on entry to the palate. The aromas detected on the nose come through again on the palate, along with vineyard peaches, mirabelles and greengages. This succulent wine is starting to express some mature aromas, thanks to the 3 years spent on its lees.
A perfect aperitif wine or serve as a partner with sweet and sour dishes such as roast pork and apple sauce, or chicken with cashew nuts.
Vinified and aged on lees to eliminate the risk of premature oxidation. Extra-Brut dosage (5 g/l) to preserve the balance between freshness, fruit and vinosity, without masking the wine's character or purity. Aged for a minimum of 3 years in the cellar at a constant temperature, well beyond the legal minimum of 15 months.
