This brilliant champagne is manually disgorged and initial fermentation still happens in small oak barrels - brilliant and a bargain!
Gosset is the oldest winery in Champagne established in 1584 and still maintains a very traditional style of manual disgorging and initial fermentation in small oak barrels without any malolactic fermentation.
Gosset Brut Excellence NV champagne has an invigorating and jubilant taste which is both fresh and delicate, following on from the initial sensation of crispness and a well-established vitality to suggest the richness of a blendwhere floral aromas have all but disappeared, replaced by the sweet and comforting flavours of ripe, fleshy fruits, such as bush peaches, nectarines and greengages.
The mouthful deploys great volume of desnity and vinosity, which are characteristics of this type of champagne, whilst the blend remains discrete. An earthy taste with hints of minerals released from sunbaked stones can be detected, revealing the subtle fragrance of spices such as cinnamon, cardamom and green pepper.
The finish is smooth, delicate, irresistible, where the deliciously sensual flavours of candied fruit, cinnamon cake and liquorice can clearly be identified.
The bouquet is intense, elegant and warm, first and foremost a vehicle for mellow, potent yet very fresh floral notes, such as honeysuckle, wisteria, white jasmine and vine blossom, rapidly giving way to mature, fruity aromas, from delicately perfumed melt-in-the-mouth garden pears to the sweet, more identifiable perfumes of exotic fruits, such as pineapple, guava and mango.
