Reviews For This Wine


 
Richard Juhlin | 88

All winemakers strive for equilibrium in one way or another. Gosset, with their oxidative, opulent style, must battle to achieve equilibrium by having a high level of acid and low dosage. In this case they have chosen to make an Extra Brut, which is a choice that I would not have made. I think that a slightly higher dosage would have made the wine rather more pleasing to the public and more harmonious from the start as well as protecting it against future oxidation. There is a great deal to indicate that its maturity will reach a slender peak, which one will have to aim at in order to be completely satisfied. This wine is otherwise clear and beautifully golden with lively mousse and a pompous Aÿ-Pinot aroma of an animal and red fruit type. Full-bodied and quite divorced from its actual grape composition at present. A short, dry finish on an otherwise lovely taste trip in the country of Aÿ.

About This Producer


Gosset is the oldest currently operating wine house in Champagne. Although small for a grand Champagne producer, Gosset makes close to 50,000 cases a year, which is approximately the same output as Krug. They are located in the town of Ay, in the heart of Champagne, along with such well-known Champagne houses as Bollinger and Deutz, and they have been making wine there since 1584. None of the Gosset Champagnes ever goes through malolactic fermentation, and this is a hallmark of the house style, producing persistent, fresh, and lively wines.
