“This limited edition cuvée is a tribute to the finesse and elegance of Pinot Noir used in our other Gosset wines.” —Cellarmaster, Champagne Gosset
With its elegant gold-flecked appearance and its extremely fine mousse, the Grand Blanc de Noirs charms from the outset. With 9 years aging on the lees, this 100% Pinot Noir exhibits a nose of white fruit, hints of patisserie, along with a touch of white peach and baked apple. As it unfurls on the palate, it beautifully displays notes of beeswax and candied citron. The attack is supple and well-balanced. The finish is crisp and fresh with salty, almost iodine notes, along with a certain minerality and structure. Perfectly balanced between intense aromas and elegant finesse, the fruity structure of the Pinot Noir is expressed with surprising freshness and precision.
Founded in Aÿ in 1584 by Pierre Gosset, Gosset is the oldest wine house in Champagne. It also remains one of the most prestigious, considered by many collectors and connoisseurs as the world’s preeminent name in luxury champagne. Gosset’s reputation for excellence starts on the vines. Its champagnes are composed almost entirely of grapes from Premier Cru and Grand Cru vineyards. Unlike most Champagne producers, this illustrious wine house purposely avoids malolactic fermentation and always performs riddling and disgorging of prestige cuvées and large-format bottles by hand. Gosset Champagnes are made with infinite care and kept in deep cellars for at least three years – and up to five or more for vintage and prestige cuvées – before release.
