Champagne Gosset reveals its latest cuvee
Champagne Gosset is launching a new cuvee, which has been resting in house cellars for more than 15 years.
The cuvee – 15 ans de cave a minima - combines wines from several harvests, which is said to express the “true spirit and personality” of Champagne Gosset, the oldest winery in Champagne, rather than focusing on a single vintage. The wine, which is a 60% blend of Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir, was aged in cellars at a depth of more than 18 metres in 1999.
The house cellar master selected Pinot Noirs from Ambonnay, Ay and Mareuil/Ay and Chardonnays from Mesnil/ Oger, Cramant and Villers-Marmery. The producer says each varietal bestows the qualities of finesse, structure and depth required for the wine to retain its freshness over time.
In the glass ’15 ans de cave a minima’ has a deep golden hue with extremely fine bubbles. Aromas of yellow fruit combine with biscuit and sweet spices.
