Gosset Celebris 2002 Champagne

More vintages: 1998, 2004Founded in 1584, Gosset is the oldest wine house in Champagne. In 1584, Pierre Gosset, alderman of Aÿ 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 cuvées 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. 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 Celebris is Champagne Gosset's Prestige Cuvée. 2002 "This is a champagne which was complex to create. To do so, I selected very contrasting villages in order to blend the various personalities. I was looking for structure but also freshness. The final result is sensational and has led to an exceptional cuvée." Jean-Pierre Mareigner, Cellar Master.

2002, was catergorised by a cold but sunny and dry winter, this set up the spring to be sunny and mild. A long summer helped the maturity of the grapes and this hot summer created ideal growing conditions for the grapes.

In the glass, a golden colour with a fine stream of bubbles. On the nose, this gracious wine has aromas of pear and pineapple. On the palate, a fresh and expansive taste of lemon and orchard fruits. A champagne with a very good finish. From magnum this is stunning.

“Disgorged August 2013. RS 5 g/l. 52% Chardonnay, 48% Pinot Noir. From Louis Latour Agencies UK.
Tasted blind. Some oak? Severe and dry on the end. Bollinger or Clos des Goisses? Lots of raciness and very dry (which should have led me to this, one of only two Extra Bruts in the tasting). Almost severe.”

“An impressive evolved nose with hints of mushroom and bonfire. Elegant, with plenty of life but showing tertiary characters, such as truffle, yet balanced by crisp acidity; it lingers delicately.

“A deep, rich and toasty nose that has a wealth of cashewy, nutty aromas and dried lemon pith, nougat and bright dried cherry fruits too. The palate's bold, assertive and full of flavor with really expansive orchard fruits. It's pared back to reveal a dry, essence-like finish with length and poise aplenty. Drink now.”

“Extremely dense and dry - most impressive, though verging on austere without anything to eat with it.”

“Aged for 10 years before disgorging and a further time before release, this is Gosset's top wine from a great vintage year. Extra Brut means it is dry, although the age of this wine has softened the intense acidity and turned it into an elegant, mature wine of great complexity as well as immediate attraction. It will age further at least until 2022, although it is totally drinkable now.”
