About The Wine

The Gosset house was established in 1584 by Pierre Gosset.

It's the oldest Champagne house still in production today and produces a relatively small amount of wine given its global stature.

Noted for its attention to quality even at scale, Gosset works with some 200+ growers across 70 different villages in the region.

This, their Blanc de Blanc, hails from vineyards across the villages of Avize, Cramant, Chouilly, Villers-Marmery, Trepail. It sees a minimum of three years on lees, with elegance and finesse being the focus of this cuveé.

It's a lovely aperitif style, light, crisp but with persistence of flavour. Ideal for matiching with seafood or aged, nutty cheeses i.e. comte.

Additional Info

From The Producer

GOSSET Grand Blanc de Blancs is made from 100% Chardonnay grapes grown in fifteen villages of the Côte des Blancs (Avize, Chouilly, Cramant, Le Mesnil-sur- Oger, Oger, Cuis) and the Côte des Noirs (Villers-Marmery, Tours-sur-Marne, Trépail). Each of these villages and terroirs bring their own character, complexities and aromas to the wine, culminating in this exceptional cuvée.

Vinified and aged on lees to eliminate all risk of premature oxidation. Malolactic fermentation is carefully avoided in order to preserve all the natural fruit aromas of the wine and to allow the wines to undergo longer ageing.

Brut dosage (6 g/l) to maintain the balance between freshness, fruit and vinosity without masking the wine’s personality and purity. Aged for a minimum of 3 years in cellars maintained at a constant temperature, well beyond the legal minimum of 15 months.

Blend : Chardonnay (100%)
ABV : 12.00%
Closure : Cork

The Champagne Guide

"The Gosset house style of refined minerality and thrilling malic acidity has shone in its blanc de blancs since its inaugural 2011 base release, and never more brilliantly than it does in this 2013 base of bright, pale straw hue. Youthful purity and focus rise with grand cru fruit presence and impressive concentration of pinpoint lemon and generous white peach, pear and golden delicious apple. This pristine fruit melds seamlessly with the brioche, almond nougat, shortbread, fresh vanilla and spice of lees age, and reductive nuances of struck flint. Ripe yet full and energetic malic acidity brings drive and focus to a finish of impressive length and tension, energising frothing salt minerality of heightened presence. It holds excellent harmony and poise on the finish, with fruit, minerality, dosage and malic acidity intricately entwined and uplifting. A thrilling blanc de blancs with the confidence to hold its poise for many years to come." - Tyson Stelzer (The Champagne Guide)

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.
