Gosset Champagne NV Grand Rose Case 6x750ml
Gosset Champagne NV Grand Rose Case
NV Grand Rosé Brut
50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Noir (including the addition of 8% red wine) from the villages of Avize, Ambonnay, Chouilly, Villers-Marmery, Verzenay… aged a minimum of 3 years on lees. No malolactic to retain freshness and precision and bottled with 9 g/l dosage.
'A confident chardonnay lead, low proportion of red wine and signature cut of malic acidity fulfil the brief for this delicate and graceful style. A pretty pale-salmon hue heralds a beautifully eloquent rosé that articulates the restrained mood of Gosset and the delicacy of a touch of pinot noir red wine. Pretty red cherry and strawberry fruit is fragranced with rose petal perfume, building to complex nuances of tamarillo with time in the glass. Tension and structure are defined equally by the salty chalk minerality of the great crus of the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims, and the drive of excellent, ripe malic acidity. It glides very long and harmonious.' 95 points, Tyson Stelzer, The Champagne Guide 2020-2021.
