  • Introduction

    • In 1993, cellarmaster Jean-Pierre Mareigner decided to pursue a project that had originated with Albert Gosset (15th generation, 1915-1991) — a prestige cuvée that would represent the best of Champagne Gosset. Thus was born CELEBRIS, a 1988 vintage cuvée, sold for the first time in 1995. This cuvée is the culmination of the Gosset style and immediately joined other high-end champagnes in its class. The great aromatic complexity and beautiful finesse that distinguishes this wine mean it can be paired with the most elaborate dishes.

  • Vineyard Profile

    • Vineyard Sources: Avize, Chouilly, Cramant, Vertus, Aÿ-Champagne, Bouzy

  • Vintage Report

    • The winter months were mild, windy and wet. Spring was hot and summery. From May through the end of July, the weather deteriorated to rain, wind and thunderstorms, often with hail. Nice weather returned August 24, causing the grapes to mature early and unevenly from one cru to the next. The earliest crus started picking on August 23, but the majority were harvested around September 2. The grapes were healthy with a good balance between alcohol and acidity.

  • Vinification

    • Malolactic Fermentation: None
      Time Spent in Cellars Prior to Disgorging: Minimum 6 years
      Dosage: Extra brut (5g/L)

  • Technical Information

    • Varietal Composition: 59% Chardonnay, 41% Pinot Noir (including 7% red wine)
    • Alcohol: 12%
    • TA: 8.3g/L
  • Tasting Notes

    • This cuvée is designed to appeal to the most discerning palate and, more generally, anyone looking for a touch of romance in their apéritif. Its freshness, with notes of red fruit (strawberry, raspberry and redcurrant), provides a smooth, comfortable sensation that lingers with hints of pink grapefruit.

      “The 2007 demanded a great deal of attention. It was not an easy year but ideal for a beautiful rendition of a rosé. The great Chardonnay of the Côte des Blancs contributes exceptional freshness to this cuvée.” Jean-Pierre Mareigner, Cellarmaster

      Suggested Serving Temperatures: Between 10 C and 12 C (50 F and 53 F)

      Suggested Pairings: The CELEBRIS Rosé Extra Brut 2007 can be served as an accompaniment to carefully chosen dishes such as salmon, a strawberry and tomato gazpacho with basil, or pan-fried scampi.

    This stylish, complex and elegantly powerful Champagne is the pinnacle of Gosset’s range and delivers such layered, fresh and complex style. The palate has a super smooth-honed, long and plush feel with a wealth of grilled almonds and grapefruit. Long, succulent draw through the finish. Magnificent. Drink now.

  • Champagne Gosset CELEBRIS Rosé Extra Brut – 2007 – The Wine Advocate – 96 Points

    The brilliant 2007 Celebris Rosé Extra Brut might be better described as "œil de perdrix," so subtle is its hue; cellar master Odilon de Varine commented that the idea behind the wine was not so much to produce a rosé as to produce a Celebris with more depth and richness. The wine wafts from the glass with a lovely bouquet of yellow orchard fruit...
