Champagne Gosset Blanc de Blanc
Min. Quantity: 1
Champagne Gosset's 'Blanc de Blanc' was made with 100% Chardonnay from the villages of Avize, Cramant, Chouilly, Villers-Marmery and Trepail. The wine was aged for a minimum of 3 years on lees and did not undergo malolactic fermentation, to retain freshness. The elegance and finesse of this wine makes it a perfect aperitif. The fresh style of this champagne also makes it an ideal pairing with dishes such as scallops, crab, a fish tartar, oysters, or a risotto with slivers of parmesan cheese. An impressive and beautifully presented champagne.
Expert Reviews & Awards
"The Gosset house style of refined minerality and thrilling malic acidity has shone in its blanc de blancs since its inaugural 2011 base release, and never more brilliantly than it does in this 2013 base of bright, pale straw hue. Youthful purity and focus rise with grand cru fruit presence and impressive concentration of pinpoint lemon and generous white peach, pear and golden delicious apple. This pristine fruit melds seamlessly with the brioche, almond nougat, shortbread, fresh vanilla and spice of lees age, and reductive nuances of struck flint. Ripe yet full and energetic malic acidity brings drive and focus to a finish of impressive length and tension, energising frothing salt minerality of heightened presence. It holds excellent harmony and poise on the finish, with fruit, minerality, dosage and malic acidity intricately entwined and uplifting. A thrilling blanc de blancs with the confidence to hold its poise for many years to come."
