CHAMPAGNE GOSSET RANKED 4TH BEST CHAMPAGNE BRAND (AMONG 50 CHAMPAGNE HOUSES LISTED BY LA REVUE DU VIN DE FRANCE)

A new award given to The Oldest Wine House in Champagne: Aÿ 1584.
Champagne GOSSET has been awarded by the latest issue (December 2013) of La Revue du Vin de France the 4th position among the 50 best-known brands of Champagne leading prestigious houses such as Dom Perignon (5th), Krug (7th), Billecart-Salmon (10th) and Ruinart (20th).
This ranking is the ultimate distinction following several others like the Prix Spécial awarded by the Guide Bettane & Desseauveto the highest 2013 quality improvement among all other Champagne Houses or the Grappe d’Or from Guide Hachette for the consistant «Coup de Coeur».

It confirms several outstanding ratings lately given to the GOSSET Cuvées such as :
    • 19/20 to GRAND MILLESIME 2004 by Tom Stevenson in The World of Fine Wines (issue 41 2013)
    • 92 given to both CELEBRIS VINTAGE 2002 and CELEBRIS ROSE 2007 in Weinwirtschaft (issue 23/2013)
    • The Gold Medal for GRANDE RESERVE from Mundis Vini Wine Competition (september 2013)
    • and from The Champagne Guide 2014-2015 – Tyson Stelzer Australie for:
        GRANDE RESERVE: 94 points
        GRAND BLANC DE BLANCS: 94 points
        GRAND ROSE: 94 points
        GRAND MILLESIME 2004: 96 points
        CELEBRIS VINTAGE 2002: 96 points
        CELEBRIS ROSE 2007: 96 points
This high opinion of the “excellence of GOSSET’s know-how” has also been approved, last October, by the French Government label “EPV” (Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant), given to-date to only 2 Champagne Houses.

History

A traditional know-how since 1584.

For over four centuries, great care has been taken to preserve a family  know-how in the making of our wines of Champagne.
In  1584, Pierre Gosset, alderman of Aÿ and wine-grower made still wines, mostly red, with the grapes he harvested from his own vines. In those days, two wines vied for pride of place at the table of the Kings of France: the wine of Aÿ and, from several hundreds of leagues further south, the wines of Beaune. Both were made from the same grape varieties Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Then, in the 18th century, the wines made in and around Aÿ began to bubble. Today, the Gosset cuvées are still presented in the antique flask identical to the one used since the 18th century.
We carefully avoid malo-lactic fermentation so that the wines keep all their natural fruitiness.

Vineyards

Champagne Gosset's reputation for high quality starts in the vineyard, where it sources grapes almost entirely from premier cru and grand cru vineyards in the Vallée de la Marne. These vineyards rate an average of 95 percent on the "échelle des crus," or "ladder of growths," — the classification system of the villages in the Champagne region. The top-rated villages are given a score of 100 percent and are called grand crus; currently there are 17 such villages. The next tier has scores ranging from 90 to 99 percent; these are the premier cru villages, of which there are 44. The remaining 296 crus have scores between 80 and 89 percent.

Winemaking

"With Gosset champagne, the wine comes first, the bubbles come later." This is the motto of Gosset, to which cellarmaster Jean-Pierre Mareigner has remained faithful for more than 30 years. Born in Aÿ, Jean-Pierre comes from a champenois family deeply rooted in viticulture; his father, Pierre, worked at Champagne Gosset as vineyard director for 15 years. 

Unlike most champagne producers, Gosset carefully avoids malolactic fermentation. Gosset champagnes are made with extreme care and kept in dark cellars for at least three years — and up to seven for vintage champagnes and 10 for the CELEBRIS cuvées — before release.

Gosset's inimitable style — powerful and full-bodied, of unrivaled richness and staying power — has changed little over the centuries. Once a favorite of the kings and queens of France, Champagne Gosset remains one of the most illustrious and prestigious producers, considered by many collectors and connoisseurs as the world's preeminent luxury champagne.

Wine Moments

 Pekka Nuikki / Founder of the Fine Wine Magazines, Pro (Finland)  tasted  1 wines  from  Gosset . In a tasting of  31 wines 

The Finnish summer has not started yet - the sea is still cold (+14c) and it's raining every second day - but the colder the weather is, the better is the taste:)


Here are some summer wines I have tried between the showers.

 Guo Ying / Sommelier, Pro (China)  tasted  1 wines  from  Gosset . In a tasting of  14 wines 

Château Lynch-Bages 2005 / Dark, purple colour. Very open and complex nose revealing, cassis, capsicum, coffee and mintiness. The very same aromas as Mouton has on the nose. Opulent medium-bodied wine with extraordinary concentration and a chewy texture. Ripe round tannins with a mouthwatering acidity and intense dark fruitiness. Flavour shows dark chocolate and hints of anise. Very intense and long finish. Absolutely gracious wine with a long life ahead. Further bottle ageing of 10-15 years will enhance the charm of the wine.

Many prestige champagnes debuted in 1959 vintage, for example, Dom Ruinart and Pol Roger Blanc de Chardonnay. A large harvest of champagnes, that often ended up above 13 percent alcohol because of the extremely hot summer. The wines have proven to be very sustainable, despite the low acid. Power and concentration are great regardless if the wines are dominated by Chardonnay or pinot noir. A wonderful champagne year in its style!

 Essi Avellan MW / Editor of the Champagne magazine, Pro (Finland)  tasted  1 wines  from  Gosset . In a tasting of  26 wines 

KRUG CLOS DU MESNIL 1995 / The toasty nose, with a suggestion of oak, is both subtle and layered. The structure is exceptional; the rich fruitiness of the vintage is combined charmingly with the stylish acidity of the Chardonnay. The concentration is perfect and the length of the taste does not leave any room for improvement. The wines of the 1995 vintage can usually be enjoyed at a young age but the rather unattached aroma of oak should be allowed to integrate into the fruitiness of the wine over time.

 Luciano Cesare, Wine Dealer (Italy)  tasted  1 wines  from  Gosset . In a tasting of  23 wines 

Dom Ruinart 1982 / Good looking normal size bottle, in an excellent condition with 2 cm level ullage below the cork. Colour is straw, and looking bright, healthy and medium. On the nose it is intense, fresh, seductive and round. The taste is fresh, rich, fruity, medium-bodied, with balanced, complex, concentrated structure and youthful. The finish is medium long, round, gentle and vibrant. This wine is sophisticated and fine. Perfectly stored bottles are still very worthy and will last well for another 10-15 years and decant at least 15min before tasting. Good value for money.

Chateau de Beaucastel 'Hommage a Jacques Perrin' 2001 (magnum)


Beaucastel has had some problems with the dreaded brett in the past but any suggestion of such issues now seem to be well behind it. Certainly, no evidence of it here. No evidence of anything but a stupendous wine. One sometimes wonders if some of the Rhone wines that have come out in recent years as 'flagships', with monumental price tags, are intended for nothing other than to jump on the Parker bandwagon and cash in while they can, with massive, overheated wine bombs. This is certainly a wine that has attracted very favourable reviews from Parker and high points. Well, he got it spot on. This is a brilliant, wonderful wine.


First made in 1989, it is a curious blend of 60% mourvedre, 20% grenache, 10% syrah and 10% counoise, though that can change in certain years such as 1998 which favoured grenache. It is only made in top years and only in small quantities, never more than 5,000 bottles, and usually considerably less.


It is ripe, big and full-flavoured. Finishes with ultra thin tannins and is incredibly long. So long. A mix of flavours with dry herbs and lots of cherry notes. This is a brilliant wine by any standard. The colour was so bright that it is simply impossible to imagine it is pushing a decade of age. It is sooo young.

“Paul Bara Special Club 2004 / Goodness gracious, what a surprise I received when I poured my club bottle and the wine was deep pink! I had absolutely no idea that there was such a thing as Special Club Rosé nowadays! One can only offer one's congratulations. The wine is very reminiscent of the non-vintage variety with somewhat greater weight, and refinement rich in mineral. Otherwise it gives the feeling of being just as young and unevolved. The fruitiness is vegetal with tones of beetroot and the beginnings of intense tones of wild bird pâté. When the wine is aired a great Pinot roundness makes its appearance.”

“Philipponnat Clos des Goisses 2002 - Moderately pale yellow colour with lively bubbles. Rich is the nose as well, with ripe fruity and toasty aromas that set this wine’s nose near perfection. Very rich, round and ripe taste is enhanced by monumental acidity. Promising youngish wine with great harmony. Great future ahead although very enjoyable already now.”

“The best Champagnes from 2002 vintage: As in Bourgogne, this is a beautiful and generous vintage with a bright future in store. It
is the rst time that I start to feel a tad old in the game. Because I have tried the vintage before in my life! Yes, the 2002 is so strikingly similar to the 1982 that I think I can predict the vintage’s whole life curve. I believe in a very linear curve without ups and downs. The wine will eventually become more buttery and fatter, with a relatively high acidity, and it will do its job in silence. The wines will reach their top at twenty to thirty years of age. Most promising
so far are many growers such as Egly-Ouriet, Michel Arnould, Pierre Gimonnet & Fils, Jacques Selosse, and Diebolt-Vallois. Amour the Deutz, Piper-Heidsieck, Perrier-Jouët Belle Époque Blanc de Blancs, and Louis Roederer Cristal are pure nectar, but the most intellec- tually challenging are Jacquesson’s vineyard wines Champ Cain and Vauzelle de Terme.”

 Richard Juhlin / The number One champagne expert in the world, Pro (Sweden)  tasted  1 wines  from  Gosset . In a tasting of  55 wines 

“Vintage 1996 / Probably one of the greatest vintages. Not since 1928 has there been a wine with as much acidity in combination with high potential alcohol, which should cater to a really long life. Just like 1990, there are examples of wines that are made with almost overripe grapes with lower acidity. These examples show a transparent oxidative and rounded pro le. Otherwise, most of the 1996s are real child abductions, with a biting acidity and monumental inherent power. I am highly impressed by the grand-cru growers, with Jacques Selosse and Diebolt-Vallois eur de Passion in the lead. Dom Pérignon is wonderful as are Cuvée William Deutz Rosé, Louis Roederer Cristal, Cristal Rosé, Krug Clos du Mesnil, and the monumental Bollinger Vieilles Vignes Française and Krug Clos d’Ambonnay.”
