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's vintage champagne is a low dosage (extra brut) blend that spends an average of eights ageing in the cellars. Gosset Grand Millésime Brut 2006 is the first product to use the new ultra-environmentally friendly foil caps recently introduced by Gosset.

Weather: The 2006 vintage was a year of mixed weather. It began with a rainy spell and late spring, but with little or no frost in the vineyards. Early summer was positive, with the months of June and July creating perfect conditions for flowering. Although there were some storms in late-July, the overall health of the vines was great since the weather remained hot through to the harvest with spells of rain in August promoting even healthier grapes.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand & Premier Cru | Chardonnay: Avize, Cramant, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Trépail, Vertus | Pinot Noir: Ambonnay, Avenay, Aÿ, Chignyles-Roses, Louvois
Grape Varieties: 56% Chardonnay, 44% Pinot Noir
Ageing: 8 years on the lees
Disgorged: Spring 2015
Dosage: 6 g/l
Drink: Now to 2026

Tasting Note: The nose is very delicate with immediate apple and pear notes and as it warms a little, more aromatic floral notes come out. This has a lovely clean and defined palate of apple and citrus notes. Given time in the glass more pear and yellow plum flavours come forward. The finish has a hint of saltiness with fresh acidity that matches perfectly with delicate sea foods and pastas.

Jancis Robinson MW
“Subtle putty aromas on the nose. Very dry and with some real interest and appetising energy here. Good stuff! Still pretty youthful and falls away a little on the end.”
90/100
Michael Edwards
“Summery scents of hawthorn, lilac and spiced lemon. A violet tinged mouthfeel with flavours of pear, mirabelle and a touch of pink grapefruit. Sustained richness without a loss of freshness thanks to tradtional non malo fermentation – the key to success in vintages a bit low in acidity. This is a charmer already and would pair very well with salmon in a sorrel sauce.”
17/20
Jancis Robinson MW
“56% Chardonnay, 44% Pinot Noir.
Pale straw. Already quite a bit of evolution on the nose – more than most 2006s. Lightly bready. Then reasonably sweet start tips it into brioche country. Agreeably medium level of fizziness and nicely dry on the end. Tight-laced finish. Nicely knit and at a good stage for current drinking.
Drink 2014-2028”
94/100
Stephan Reinhardt
“From an excellent vintage, especially for Pinot Noir, Gosset's golden-yellow 2006 Grand Millésime Brut (which blends 56% Pinot Noir with 44% Chardonnay and was disgorged after eight years on the lees) displays a deep, rich and fresh, very mineral bouquet. This is followed by a full-bodied, very complex and persistent palate with purity, finesse and great expression. This is a mouthful of a straightforward, well-structured and refreshing millésime with a long and pure, salty and stringent finish. This 2006 combines richness with purity, elegance with complexity, and finesse with a serious expression and length. A great Champagne indeed.”
90/100
Essi Avellan MW
“Stylish, rich, ripe red fruit, confectionary and yeast nose. Tart, zesty and clean palate with good ripeness of fruit. Long and energetic with both power and precision. The no-malo policy seems to have worked perfectly in this warm vintage of lower acidity. A tart style with plenty of delicious fruit.”
94/100
Roger Voss
“This is a dry style of wine, with great acidity and a tightly wrought texture. As with many Gosset Champagnes, this wine has had no malolactic fermentation, enhancing the freshness and crispness as well as the structure. Full of lemon zest, crisp grapefruit and delicious acidity, it will still age for many years. Drink from 2017.”
93/100
Antonio Galloni
“The 2006 Brut Grand Millésime offers more near term appeal than many Gosset Champagnes as the flavors show a good amount of complexity, while the contours are nicely mellowed. Hazelnut, savory herbs, anise, mint and dried pear meld into the generous, inviting finish. The typical Gosset energy is nicely balanced by the weight and soft, relaxed contours of a wine that is now nearly ten years old. Lightly honeyed and toasty notes round out the close. In 2006 the blend is 56% Pinot Noir and 44% Chardonnay from vineyards in Avize, Cramant, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Trépail, Vertus, Ambonnay, Avenay, Aÿ, Chigny-les-Roses and Louvois.”
16.5/20
Jancis Robinson MW
“Vegy nose. Hints of globe artichokes. Pretty sweet and frothy. Just a hint of beeriness. Notably individual. Lots of undertow. Very broad and willowy. Good but not great. ”
