Champagne Gosset launches new vintage of Grand Millésime
Champagne Gosset is launching the latest edition of its award-winning Grand Millésime low dosage vintage Champagne at Vinexpo this week.
The Grand Millésime 2012 is once again a predominantly Chardonnay (67%) dominated Champagne made from grapes sourced from the acclaimed villages of Côte des Blancs, Villers- Marmery, Ambonnay and Cumières, along with 33% of Pinot Noir. The dosage is 8g/l.
This elegant style of Champagne is renown for its great finesse and the 2012 vintage is described by Champagne Gosset as a “supremely crisp and expressive wine” that “unveils a nose of pear and peach aromas”. The fine, full-bodied palate is “rounded out by flavours of stone fruits such as damson and mirabelle plum with persistent fresh notes of pear, peach and grapefruit”. The Champagne also has that distinctive welcome acidity that is typical of the Grand Millésime style as it leaves the palate refreshed, ready for another glass. This particularity makes it a suitable gastronomic Champagne, perfect either as an aperitif or to pair ideally with fish.
“Quality does not have to come with great age,” said Odilon de Varine, Gosset’s cellar master. “This is a fresh and elegant vintage in which Chardonnay expresses itself fully”.
