Champagne Gosset Brut Excellence – NV – Wine & Spirits – 91 Points
This starts out smoky and tense, with scents of baking spice and rising bread that slowly open to white pear and ginger flavors. The leesiness develops into mineral notes and nutty flavors. For aperitifs with Marcona almonds.
Champagne Gosset Brut Excellence – NV – The Wine Advocate – 90 Points
The Gosset NV Brut Excellence is an assemblage of Pinot Noir (45%), Chardonnay (30%) and Pinot Meunier (25%) sourced in Aÿ, Chigny-les-Roses, Courmas and Cumières. Pure and fresh on the nose, with bright, partly dried fruit aromas, this citrus-colored fizz is light, elegant and fresh but well structured, in short: a terrific effort at this level and a delicious aperitif.
