GOSSET GRAND MILLESIME 2012 150CLCHAMPAGNE WHITE
An outstanding vintage born in an exceptional year.
This Champagne is the fruit of an outstanding harvest.
The quality of the harvest determines the quality of the future vintage and is the deciding factor in terms of
the wine’s potential.
The Gosset Grand Millésime is the third vintage ever of this Champagne crafted primarily from Pinot Noir,
following the 1990 and 2006 vintages.
During the year, we selected plots in which the Pinot Noirs were particularly fresh and elegant.
The Chardonnays were chosen for their lively and aromatic character.
Odilon de Varine, Gosset’s Cellar Master:
«This year blessed us with exceptionally fresh and elegant wines,
which enabled us to create a vintage Champagne well suited to moments of shared enjoyment».
Extremely fine bubbles.
Bright and clear with delicate golden tinges.
The nose is fresh, fruity and zesty and combines both richness and elegance
with its notes of freshly baked pastries and fresh fruit: nougat, marzipan,
candied orange and mirabelle plum. Delicate swathes of Passe-Crassane
pear and Williams pear liqueur structure the bouquet.
A tonic wine with excellent tension and aromas of fresh fruit. Nectarine and
peach give way to zesty notes of rhubarb on the mid-palate. The finish is
clean, direct and saline, with a pleasant bitterness and a hint of verbena.
The perfect partner for fruity and spicy dishes such as chicken in
lemongrass, a lamb tajine with lemon and almonds, roasted gambas with
pilau rice or friddled vegetables. This Champagne also pairing surprisingly
well with certain desserts such as a rhubarb tart or lemon meringue pie.
The story of the GOSSET family begins over four centuries ago with the first official ancestor of the family line, Jean GOSSET 1484–1556, “Seigneur of Aÿ and Mareuil”. Following in his footsteps, sixteen generations, all born in Aÿ in Champagne, would go on to win fame not only as deputy mayors, mayors, prosecutors, but also in growing and trading the wines of Champagne.
Whatever the period, these men and women had a single ambition – to improve their terroir.
At the end of the 20th century, the takeover by the Cointreau family and the birth of the CELEBRIS Vintage Cuvées sees GOSSET Champagne enter the highest echelons of the prestigious houses, both in France and abroad.
A passion that from past to present has shaped the image and reputation of the oldest Wine House in the region, whose name today is synonymous with a guarantee of excellence for all connoisseurs of great champagnes.
