About The Wine
A glass of Rose Champagne is one of life's great joys. Not a simple pleasure though, as a lot of work goes into making these beautiful bottles.
Gosset's delectable Grand Rose is equal amounts Pinot Noir and Chardonnay made into a white bubbly Champagne, with about 8% Pinot Noir as a still table red then added to give the wine its colour and structure. Wild roses, strawberries and some smoky spices are some of the myriad of flavours.
It's light, fresh, ethereal and disappears way too quick in the glass - which should be a normal wine glass, not in a dreaded flute..
About Champagne Gosset
The Gosset house was established in 1584 by Pierre Gosset in the great Champagne town of Ay.
It's the oldest Champagne house still in production today and produces a relatively small amount of wine given its global stature.
Gosset focuses primarily on Pinot Noir, and unusually they avoid malolactic fermentation, aiming instead to maintain high acid levels and to release wines with extended lees aging.
Noted for its attention to quality even at scale, Gosset works with some 200+ growers across 70 different villages in the region.
After more than 440 years of family stewardship Gosset was sold to the Renaud-Cointreau family in 1993, and expanded to include a new facility in Epernay.
