Description & Technical Information
-
Founded in 1584, Gosset is the oldest winemaking House in the Champagne region. Production remained fairly low-key until 1994, when the House was sold to the family owned Renaud-Cointreau Group. This takeover saw an increased level of investment improve their vineyard management and fostered a doubling of Gosset's annual production to nearly one million bottles in just fourteen years. Owning just a few vineyards, Gosset purchase nearly all of the grapes required for production. After sixteen generations in the famous village of Aÿ, the winery has only recently moved to a larger and new plot in Épernay.

Gosset 12 Ans de Cave is the creation of previous Gosset Cellar Master, Jean-Pierre Mareigner and left to age for twelve years, this cuvée is a unique blend of various different vintages.

With all Gosset still wines they prevent the malolactic fermentation, the naturally occurring “second fermentation” usually following the 1st fermentation where yeast convert sugars to alcohol. With the ML fermentation it is the conversion of malic (green apple acid) to lactic acids (the softer milk acids). Preventing this process gives the winemaking team at Gosset the chance to showcase the bright fruitiness and brisk acidity when the grapes are ripe and the quality is high - a hallmark of the House style. The wines were cellared in spring 2007 and disgorged September 2019 with 12.5 years of ageing on the lees helping to round out that otherwise crisp acidity.

Expert Reviews
93/100
William Kelley
“Based on the 2006 vintage and disgorged in December 2019, the inaugural release of Gosset's new NV Brut 12 Ans de Cave a Minima wafts from the glass with a lovely bouquet of candied peel, warm biscuits, yellow orchard fruit and brioche. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, it's bright and incisive, with beautifully integrated acids, a delicate pinpoint mousse and a long, sapid finish. Gosset's racy style has really synergized with the ripe vintage and long sur lattes maturation to make for a very successful cuvée.”
93/100
Essi Avellan
“This long-lees-aged non-vintage has gained what there is to gain from its 12 years on yeast. The key villages for the cuvée are Avize, Cramant, Aÿ, Louvois and Ambonnay, Bouzy and Verzy, with the share of Pinot Noir lightly surpassing that of Chardonnay. Pure and age-mellowed on the nose, which has baking spices and toastiness alongside dough, apricot and apple jam fruit. The lees have enriched the palate, too, and a lovely soothing softness marries well with the wine's brisk acidity. Long, deliciously fruity finish. Peaking now; there is no need to wait. Dosage 7g/l”
