Gosset Grand Rosé Brut NV Champagne

Producer

ounded in 1584, Gosset is the oldest wine house in Champagne. In 1584, Pierre Gosset, alderman of Aÿ and wine-grower, mostly red, wine from the grapes he harvested from his own vines. In the 18th century as champagne sales began to grow, the Gosset family turned to making champagne. Today, the Gosset cuvées are still presented in the antique flask identical to the one used since the 18th century. In 1994 the house was sold to the family owned Renaud-Cointreau Group, and this allowed a new level of investment to improve their vineyard management and production in the winery.

Vinification

Gosset blends together the best Crus of the Marne district with Premier Cru vineyards in the villages are Avize, Chouilly, Villers-Marmery, Ambonnay, Verzenay. Once the wine has gone through its first fermentation, Gosset prevent the still wine undergoing its malolactic fermentation, which is a natural process where malic acid converts to lactic acid, the bi-product is something called diacetyl, which is the main flavour compound in butter. Most champagne houses allow their wines to undergo the ML fermentation, so the champagnes that don't tend to have fresher acidity and be more delicate and fruit driven. The Rosé Brut NV has a minimum of three years in the cellar before disgorgement. Gosset Cellar-Masterr, Jean-Pierre Mareigner - "This is almost a vintage. Indeed, I added just a very little amount of reserve wines. The low dosage gives a nice balance. The red wines from Bouzy and Ambonnay are in perfect balance with the majority of chardonnay."
