The nose opens with the fresh ripeness of yellow apple and highlights of Granny Smith. It has beautifully subtle autolysis on the palate, deepening into notes of creamy apple crumble, Golden Delicious and Mirabelle plum, while remaining utterly strait-laced. Elegance, length and absolute freshness are inherent and quietly convincing.

Wine Spectator 93
A spine of chiseled acidity structures this vivid, creamy Champagne, which has a minerally underpinning of smoke and brine and flavors of Asian pear, baked pineapple, lemon curd, toasted brioche and roasted almond. Should pair well with grilled fish. Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier

James Suckling 93
This has attractive aromas of apricots, pie crust, raspberries, fresh walnuts and pears, with a hint of white pepper and ginger. Elegant, fine and supple mousse, with a medium body and creamy layers of fresh fruit and pastries. So dry and clean. 45% chardonnay, 45% pinot noir and 10% meunier, based on 2017 vintage with 8% reserve wines. 7g/L dosage. Drink now.

Wine Enthusiast 91
Gossets nonvintage cuve is a fine example of the richness of this producers Champagnes. It is full, laden with Pinot texture and a touch of toast from bottle aging. Drink now.

Jeb Dunnuck 90
The NV Grande Reserve Brut, which is 45% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir, and the rest Pinot Meunier and 8 g/l dosage, is lifted with tropical and citrus fruit including lychee, orange blossom, and lime. Juicy and medium-bodied, with tangerine and mango, it is a solid entry to the range. Best after 2022.

Tasting Notes
The color is bright and golden, the nose open and expressive, and the palate is dominated by a refreshing mineral tension.

This is the true signature of the House. An expression of the Gosset style, which I have been maintaining for 30 years. Jean-Pierre Mareigner, Cellarmaster

Suggested Serving Temperatures: Between 8 C and 10 C (46 F and 50 F)

Suggested Pairings: This champagne is the perfect accompaniment to mild and subtly spiced dishes with cooked fruit, sweet/savory dishes or tajines. A blend of three vintages, the Grande Rserve Brut is adaptable by nature from apritif to dessert.
About Gosset
Founded in Aÿ in 1584 by Pierre Gosset, Champagne Gosset is the oldest wine house in Champagne. Over the next four centuries, generations of the Gosset family would go on to win fame not only as alderman, mayors and magistrates in Aÿ, but also in growing and trading wines of Champagne. Whatever the period, the men and women of the Gosset family had a single ambition -- to improve their terroir.
In 1993, after more than 400 years of family ownership, Champagne Gosset was purchased by the Renaud-Cointreau family, who also owns and manages the highly regarded Cognac Frapin. The Renaud-Cointreaus insist on a continuity of the old-style champagne appropriate to its historic birthplace in Aÿ. While other Champagne houses are handing over the reins to large corporations, the Renaud-Cointreau family understands the importance of preserving the heritage in winemaking that has, over 430 years, made Champagne Gosset the ultimate name in champagne.

In 2009, Champagne Gosset announced the acquisition of a new property in the heart of Epernay which will serve as an extension to its production facilities in Aÿ.
Champagne Gosset's reputation for high quality starts in the vineyard, where it sources grapes almost entirely from premier cru and grand cru vineyards in the Vallée de la Marne. These vineyards rate an average of 95 percent on the "échelle des crus," or "ladder of growths," -- the classification system of the villages in the Champagne region. The top-rated villages are given a score of 100 percent and are called grand crus; currently there are 17 such villages. The next tier has scores ranging from 90 to 99 percent; these are the premier cru villages, of which there are 44. The remaining 296 crus have scores between 80 and 89 percent.

"With Gosset champagne, the wine comes first, the bubbles come later." This is the motto of Gosset, to which cellarmaster Jean-Pierre Mareigner has remained faithful for more than 30 years. Born in Aÿ, Jean-Pierre comes from a champenois family deeply rooted in viticulture; his father, Pierre, worked at Champagne Gosset as vineyard director for 15 years.

Unlike most champagne producers, Gosset carefully avoids malolactic fermentation. Gosset champagnes are made with extreme care and kept in dark cellars for at least three years -- and up to seven for vintage champagnes and 10 for the CELEBRIS cuvées -- before release.
Gosset's inimitable style -- powerful and full-bodied, of unrivaled richness and staying power -- has changed little over the centuries. Once a favorite of the kings and queens of France, Champagne Gosset remains one of the most illustrious and prestigious producers, considered by many collectors and connoisseurs as the world's preeminent luxury champagne.
