  • 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 – 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.

  • Champagne Gosset Grand Rosé Brut — NV – Wine & Spirits – 92 Points

    A pale-pink rosé, this has shades of raspberries, rosehips and rhubarb touching the earthy limestone scent of Champagne. It’s concentrated and lasting, with a clean quinine bitterness that will pair well with sashimi.

  • Champagne Gosset Grand Rosé Brut – NV – Wine Spectator – 93 Points

    This vibrant rosé is tightly knit and racy, with a floral overtone and flavors of peach skin, white cherry, whole-grain toast and chalky mineral showing finely honed precision as they ride the creamy, detailed mousse. Disgorged May 2018. Drink now through 2024. 600 cases imported. 

  • Champagne Gosset Grand Rosé Brut – NV – James Suckling – 92 Points

    A bright nose of strawberry and pink-grapefruit aromas with hints of blood oranges and berries, as well as almond biscuits. The palate has a super vibrant, fleshy ball of fresh red-fruit flavor and delivers a refreshing, minerally finish. Drink now.
