Non-Vintage Champagnes You Should Know
“As famous a Champagne house as Gosset is – it has been in business for over 400 years – it always seems to slip in under the radar. But quality here is extremely high, especially for this non-vintage Brut (note that there is another NV Brut from Gosset called Brut Excellence, which is pleasant, but lacks the complexity of this cuvée).
This is a winemaker’s wine, a blend of 43% Chardonnay, 42% Pinot Noir, and 15% Meunier, that combines very good acidity with bright fruit and very good weight on the palate. It is ideally suited for foods ranging from shellfish to poultry (roast chicken with asparagus would be an ideal pairing). You can also wait a few years after purchasing a bottle, as lovely toasty aromas start to develop after two to three years. Very fine value.”
