You can never go wrong keeping a good stock of bubbles around, and with the holidays approaching faster than we realize, top quality rosé Champagne is an absolute must. What could be better than Gosset? The oldest of the Champagne houses, Gosset dates back to the 1500s, and over their 425+ year history they remain one of the top names in luxury Champagne. It’s not hard to see why, as they turn out “finely sculpted” Champagne (Galloni) that is a “great choice for the dinner table.”
Gosset was once favored by kings and nobles in France, and while their original customers may have fallen on hard times, Gosset has survived by making one of the most refined Champagne’s of its class, and like all the great producers, has not strayed from their distinctive house style. Though they block malolactic fermentation, resulting in a brighter, fresher profile, they also employ extended oak aging and time on the lees to add richness and texture. The Grand Rosé slightly favors Chardonnay in the assemblage and uses a touch of red wine to achieve the vibrant salmon pink hue.
Nothing symbolizes luxury and celebration like rosé Champagne, and the Gosset NV Grand Rosé is the perfect choice for the holiday season. Stock up today and enjoy for the next several years. Cheers!
