- Other Info:
- The Gosset family have been making wine in Champagne since 1584, a date that precedes the creation of the first Champagne house - Ruinart - by well over a century. Gosset lay no claim to this apparently much-coveted title though, simply because in the 16th Century they weren't making Champagne only still wine. Today the wines are sourced from 45 local villages and are fermented separately in small vats, so that the identity of the wine is preserved prior to blending. All the fruit and riddling (turning the bottle over many weeks to remove the sediment) is still done by hand. All of this is part of the Gosset Charter of Excellence. Every bottle produced is subject to this charter, and it upholds the fundamental values and traditions of perfection.
A fine nose, fine, with notes of almonds with a lightly roasted edge, and baked oat biscuit with a little honey tinge. This has great style. The palate is full, showing some evolution, with more nutty character like that on the nose. This is a big, bold and yet elegantly defined wine built around a crisp acid core. Excellent wine.

- Food match:
Gosset themselves suggest that this vintage is a particularly good match for fresh or very slightly matured goat's cheese.
