Delivery Details

Gosset Grand Millésime 2012 is assembled with 67% Chardonnay and 33% Pinot Noir. Gosset's house style is evident, with the base wines being vinified and aged on lees. As ever with this house, malolactic conversion was avoided, and the Champagne was rested in their cellars for 5 years before being disgorged. The result is Champagne with pristine, elegant fruit, and a soft, almost pillowy texture. Dosage was 8g/l, just enough to balance the keen acidity and allow the fruit to shine: a panoply of pink grapefruit, blood orange, peach, mirabelle plum and damson.

Whilst not an easy vintage for growers, the end results were remarkable, with 2012 being touted as one of the greatest vintages this century, along with 2002 and 2008.

Difficult conditions to begin with; some very low temperatures in winter and an early budding, with all sort of climatic issues and lot of rain during Spring. There was a sudden change in mid-July with dry and warm conditions until end August and cooler weather for harvest. A difficult vintage for the nerves but beautiful in the end: bright, lively, dynamic. The Chardonnay shows exceptional character with great structure and depth while the Pinot Noir is more shy but complements the Chardonnay nicely with layers and flesh
Pronounced fruity aromas of pear, peach and grapefruit are overlaid with herbal and spice notes of fennel and liquorice. The palate has great depth, unfurling over time with notes of stone fruits and tangy citrus. The flavours close on a long, saline finish. This is so expressive in character that makes it hard to resist now, but with plenty of energy and structure to age for several more years,

What a treat our Gosset champagne was during a recent family lunch. It looked a beautiful colour and tasted sublime. My family hadn't tried it before but now they plan to include Gosset into all of our celebrations!
