'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.' 94 points, Tyson Stelzer, The Champagne Guide 2020-2021.
‘A cuvée that emphasizes Chardonnay from the Montagne de Reims, the latest rendition of the NV Grand Blanc de Blancs Brut exhibits scents of citrus oil, green apples, fennel, white flowers and freshly baked bread. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, with a broad and powerful attack that segues into a tightly wound, racy mid-palate and concludes with a precise, delicately mordant finish. Drink 2020-2035.’ 93 points, William Kelly, The Wine Advocate, May 2019.
