Gosset releases ’06 vintage

Champagne Gosset has launched its latest Grand Millésime, the 2006, which is also the first to use “ultra environmentally friendly” packaging.

gosset-2000Spending eight years in the house’s cellars the Champagne is ablend of 56% Pinot Noir and 44% Chardonnay.

With a “low dosage”, it is said to have notes of “hawthorn, lilac and pear” on the nose and “grapefruit burst” on the palate.

Cellar master Jean-Pierre Mareigner said: “The beginning of 2006 was marked by a very dry spell and no spring frosts. A warm, dry and sunny June helped the flowering and full bloom was recorded in the 1982-2006 average (mid-June). Hailstorms in July, then a cool, wet spell in August, was followed by improved early September weather which stimulated maturation, resulting in the grapes being in prime condition just prior to harvest.

“2006 was a particularly good year for the Pinots Noirs, which showed great maturity, with considerable fruit and body.”

As part of its on-going environmental commitment, the foil caps on the bottles have been replaced with a “new generation” of foils made from low-density green polyethylene and printed with water-based inks.

Priced at £65-69 a bottle, the 2006 is available through Louis Latour Agencies.
