Gosset 15 Ans de Cave NV Champagne

Founded in 1584, Gosset is the oldest wine house in Champagne. In 1584, Pierre Gosset, alderman of A and wine-grower, mostly red, wine from the grapes he harvested from his own vines. In the 18th century as champagne sales began to grow, the Gosset family turned to making champagne. Today, the Gosset cuves are still presented in the antique flask identical to the one used since the 18th century. In 1994 the house was sold to the family owned Renaud-Cointreau Group, and this allowed a new level of investment to improve their vineyard management and production in the winery.

Gosset blends together the best Crus of the Marne district with Premier Cru vineyards in the villages are Avize, Chouilly, Villers-Marmery, Ambonnay, Verzenay. The Chardonnay in this blend came from Avize, Clamant, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Trpail and Vertus. The Pinot Noir in this blend came from Ambonnay, Avenay, A-Champagne, Chigny-les-roses and Louvois. Once the wine has gone through its first fermentation, Gosset prevent the still wine undergoing its malolactic fermentation, which is a natural process where malic acid converts to lactic acid, the bi-product is something called diacetyl, which is the main flavour compound in butter. Most champagne houses allow their wines to undergo the ML fermentation, so the champagnes that don't tend to have fresher acidity and be more delicate and fruit driven.

Gosset 15 Ans de Cave is blended from various different vintages and was cellared in 1999. Cellar Master Jean-Pierre Mareigner remains tight-lipped about the vintages in the blend. The blend is 60% Chardonnay from Mesnil-sur-Oger, Avize and Cramant and 40% Pinot Noir from A, Mareuil-sur-A and Ambonnay. It is expected that only a few hundred bottles are to be released to the UK market, with only 5,000 bottles produced.

Its long ageing in the cellar, with no malolatic fermentation to pass the time, enables our 15-year-old Gosset to retain its freshness and elegance while gaining added vinosity, complexity, fullness. The balance is ideal, and the bubbles are clearly at the service of the wine. Jean-Pierre Mareigner, Cellar Master.

The wine contains a very fine stream of bubbles and is a vivid yellow, with aromas of lemon and slight biscuit notes. On the palate a complexity of dried fruits and honey notes fill the mid-palate. This rich fresh fruit flavour is evident throughout the finish which is long and lingering, a great characteristic of Gosset Champagne.

“Deep lemon-gold colour. Distinctly evolved nose with opulent red fruit exuberance, dough and bruised apple characters of oxidative aspect. Muscular, well-built palate with firm high-acid structure. This multi-vintage is built to demonstrate the ageing capacity of a non-vintage blend, promising an ageing period of no less than 15 years in the cellar. This is the inaugural blend from 1998, 1996 and 1995 vintages, January 2015 disgorgement tasted.”

“Deep gold. Open, rich, complex nose delivering notes of orange-flavoured biscuit, stone fruits, dried fruits and gingerbread. The palate is lush yet also fresh, precise and fruit-forward. A superlative Champagne showing remarkable expression and length.”
