Gosset ‘Antique range’ gift box

Champagne house Gosset has released a new three-bottle gift box for its Antique range, which includes its Grande Réserve, Grand Blanc de Blancs and Grand Rosé expressions.

While intended principally to house its trio of Antique range wines, the box can also hold a combination of bottles, Champagne glasses and stoppers, customisable to a buyer’s preference. The black and red box echoes the colour scheme of the brand, and includes the word ‘Gosset’ in silver print down the side. The ribbon handle allows the box to be transported without the need for an additional bag. The adjustable box is sealed with a magnet.

In addition, the gift box has been fitted with a special protective cover to protect the Grand Blanc de Blancs cuvée, which is now sold in a transparent glass bottle, from UV damage. The blanc de blancs was relaunched earlier this year in a clear glass bottle in homage to Suzanne Gosset (1885-1970) who “pioneered” the use of such bottles in the Champagne region. The clear glass is intended to not only “underline the purity and brilliance” of the wine’s colour, but also to “evoke the mineral quality found on the palate and the wine’s origins in the region’s chalk soil”.

The house has also introduced a new 100% Pinot Noir blanc de noirs cuvée, sourcing the grapes from grand and premier cru vineyards. The new cuvée, which is aged for nine years on its lees and is prevented from undergoing malolactic fermentation, carries a dosage of 5g/l.

Gosset cellarmaster Odilon de Varine said: “I am proud of this limited-edition cuvée, which expresses the finesse and elegance of Pinot Noir used in our other Gosset wines. We are delighted to share this unique wine with all our fellow Champagne connoisseurs, followers and friends.”

RRP: £60.
