  • Tasting Notes

    • The Grand Brut Rosé is a soft hue of salmon pink with a few ruby-cherry reflections. The nose is clearly marked by strawberries. Well-structured with a constant tension between freshness and fruity roundness, the wine is dominated by a red pulpy fruit — perhaps wild strawberry (cream or as a coulis) — giving a soft, coated sensation. It is round with a beautifully fresh finish.

      “This is almost a vintage. Indeed, I added just a very little amount of reserve wines. The low dosage gives a nice balance. The red wines from Bouzy and Ambonnay are in perfect balance with the majority of the Chardonnay.” Jean-Pierre Mareigner, Cellarmaster

      Suggested Serving Temperatures: Between 8 C and 10 C (46 F and 50 F)

      Suggested Pairings: Due to the gentle nature of this champagne, fruit is an ideal match; as is foie gras for the daring and for the fat and sweetness of the base of this wine. The Grand Rosé Brut also pairs well with fish or shellfish.

Reviews

  • Champagne Gosset Grand Rosé Brut — Non Vintage – Wine Spectator – 92 Points

    A minerally rosé Champagne with a crisp, lacy mousse, this is tightly meshed and balanced, offering a finely detailed range of crunchy white peach, spun honey, pink grapefruit pith and ground ginger. Creamy and lingering on the chalk-tinged finish.

  • Champagne Gosset Grand Rosé Brut — Non Vintage – Burghound – 91 Points

    Oeil de perdrix tint. Once again,the nose is quite restrained with its wisps of strawberry, raspberry, cherry and yeasty hints.The racy and refined medium-bodied flavors possess a lovely texture that is reinforced by the fine but firm citrus-tinged mousse that carries over to the clean and notably dry but not really austere finale. This too could use better depth, but it still is quite lovely.

  • Champagne Gosset Grand Rosé Brut — NV – Wine Enthusiast – 93 Points

    Heading towards dryness, this pale-colored rosé Champagne is also rich. Its red-currant and crisp apple flavors are laced with citrus zest to give a wine that has fine balance.

  • Champagne Gosset Grand Rosé Brut – NV – The Wine Advocate – 91+ Points

    Based on the 2014 vintage, the new release of Gosset's NV Brut Grand Rosé is still quite tightly wound after its recent disgorgement in November 2019, unwinding in the glass with aromas of orange rind, crisp orchard fruit and warm biscuits. Medium to full-bodied, deep and muscular, it's bright and chalky, with racy acids and notable phenolic structure, complemented by a pinpoint mousse. It will really begin to show all its cards after a few years on cork.
