Aromas of pear and honeysuckle perfume the bouquet. This is a beautifully balanced champagne with a long, expressive finish. Gosset only uses juice from the first and best pressing of grapes, and unlike most other producers, initial fermentation is still carried out in small oak barrels. Riddling and disgorgement are performed by hand. Significantly, and in contrast to virtually all other houses, Gosset Champagnes do not undergo a malolactic fermentation, resulting in a heightened acidity, slower maturing wines and that inimitable Gosset style – powerful and full-bodied, of unrivaled richness and staying power – in other words, some of the world's most legendary Champagne.
A broad Champagne, featuring nice definition and flavors of pear pastry, black licorice and smoke on a delicately textured, creamy mousse. Shows fine length, with a lingering ginger note. 90 Points; Wine Spectator
The NV Brut Excellence is a terrific effort at this level. A fragrant, open bouquet leads to deep, layered core of fruit. The wine shows gorgeous complexity, nuance and a multi-dimensional personality that is simply compelling. The Brut Excellence is 45% Pinot Noir, 13% Pinot Meunier and 42% Chardonnay. 90 Points The Wine Advocate
A robust and classically styled Champagne, this is rich and creamy in the middle, braced by steely acidity. It feels clean and polished, a fragrant wine for plump littleneck clams. 90 Points Wine & Spirits
