From the Producer:
“In our range, we lacked a Blanc de Blancs. We wanted to add one to the family, yet preserve the House style. It offers both the finesse of the Côte des Blancs and the structure of the Montagne de Reims. I thoroughly enjoyed creating this wine.” – Odilon de Varine, Cellarmaster
The fine and steady bubbles rise gracefully to the surface. The color is pale golden. The nose, both mineral and floral, reveals aromas of flowers, white fruits, apricots, Mirabelle plum and very light notes of lemon, citrus fruits, quince jelly, honey and star anise. In the mouth, one will be seduced by the saltiness and iodine touch typical to the champenois terroir. White flowers mingle with a hint of toastiness. A silky and harmonious sensation for this crisp and structured champagne.
Suggested Serving Temperatures: Between 8 C and 10 C (46 F and 50 F)
Suggested Pairings: The Grand Blanc de Blancs Brut makes the perfect apéritif; its freshness also makes it ideal for pairing with many dishes, including scallops, crab remoulade or gougères.
Gosset is Champagne's oldest producer, founded in the 16th century, and this blanc de blancs takes advantage of its well-established connections by sourcing Chardonnay from 15 different villages. The base wines are aged on lees after the primary fermentation but malolactic fermentation is blocked in order to retain the house's characteristic zinginess. The result is prickly, saline, lemony and tight, with some mouth-puckering apple, citrus and herb flavours. Light and focused, there's a touch of nuttiness on the finish.... (James Button, 2019)
