Gosset Celebris 2004 Champagne

More vintages: 1998, 2002Founded 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. “The 2004 vintage has incredible balance and complexity. The malic acid, skillfully preserved, gives freshness and elegance to this great wine that will be enjoyed for several decades to come.” Jean-Pierre Mareigner, Cellar Master.

The 2004 vintage was a plentiful harvest and had great maturity. August was a particularly cool month, but September was full of dry heat which accelerated the growing of the fruits.

An opulent appearance, bright pale gold with emerald green highlights. Aromas of honey and hints of caramel lead to a refreshing palate of pears, pineapple and citrus fruits. The champagne has incredible balance and is sure to improve further with a little patience.

“Pale straw green colour with a flowing, persistent small bubbled mousse. The nose is tight and contained , although with air it develops more complexity, with aromas of toasted bread, spiced lemon and quince. Although still taut, there’s a real core of mineral rich, deep flavours that promise well for long aging. Up there with the 2002 but more subtle and ready sooner. Dosage 4.5%, disgorged June 2016.
