Champagne Gosset launches extra brut

 Champagne Gosset has added an Extra Brut to its range, its first non-vintage expression of this style, with a dosage of 5g/litre.

The Extra Brut Gosset Champagne is made t has been made from a blend of 32% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir 45% and 23% Pinot Meunier sourced from villages including Cumières, Boursault, Janvry, Chavot, Vertus, Cuis, Avenay, Tauxières, Louvois, Villers-Marmery, Trépail.

Vinified and aged for three years on its lees “to eliminate the risk of premature oxidation”, well beyond the legal minimum of 15 months, the wine has a dosage of just 5g/l, with the aim of preserving the “balance between freshness, fruit and vinosity, without masking the wine’s character or purity”.

On the nose, the wine is said to exude aromas of “white flowers, such as acacia and hawthorn, set off by succulent aromas of pear,”  replicated on the palate, along with peaches, mirabelles and greengages, and described as a wine with “great purity with a fresh and lively acidity”.

Gosset cellarmaster, Odilon de Varine, added: “This cuvée offers a subtle blend of aromatic precision and vinosity. It shows a complex and round character while being Extra-Brut It has been designed for drinkers who love lively Champagnes.”

The Champagne Gosset Extra Brut joins a portfolio of Champagnes which includes Gosset Grande Réserve NV, Gosset Grand Rosé NV, Gosset Grand Blanc de Blancs NV, Gosset Grand Millésime 2006, Celebris Vintage 2007 and Celebris Rosé 2007, which replaces Gosset Brut Excellence NV and is directed to the on-trade.

Its latest expression is available from Louis Latour Agencies.
