This is a dry style of wine, with great acidity and a tightly wrought texture. As with many Gosset Champagnes, this wine has had no malolactic fermentation, enhancing the freshness and crispness as well as the structure...   This is a dry style of wine, with great acidity and a tightly wrought texture. As with many Gosset Champagnes, this wine has had no malolactic fermentation, enhancing the freshness and crispness as well as the structure. Full of lemon zest, crisp grapefruit and delicious acidity, it will still age for many years. Drink from 2017.

On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, broad and creamy, with a fleshy, generous profile that's balanced by brisk acids and enlivened by a delicate pinpoint mousse, concluding with a subtly chalky finish. - William Kelley

The soft and creamy mousse of this elegant Champagne imparts a sense of finesse to the bright acidity, driving the flavors of baked plum, clover honey, preserved lemon and coffee cake.

Hazelnut, savory herbs, anise, mint and dried pear meld into the generous, inviting finish. The typical Gosset energy is nicely balanced by the weight and soft, relaxed contours of a wine that is now nearly ten years old. Lightly honeyed and toasty notes round out the close. In 2006 the blend is 56% Pinot Noir and 44% Chardonnay from vineyards in Avize, Cramant, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Trépail, Vertus, Ambonnay, Avenay, Aÿ, Chigny-les-Roses and Louvois. -- Antonio Galloni

The wine spent eight years aging on its fine lees prior to disgorgement and was finished off with a dosage of six grams per liter. The wine offers up a fine and vibrant bouquet of apple, a touch of peach, warm bread, beautiful minerality, gentle smokiness, just a whisper of fresh nutmeg and a topnote of white lilies. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and still quite racy in personality, with a lovey core, refined mousse, crisp acids and excellent focus and grip on the long and complex finish. This is drinking very well today, but it is still climbing and will be even better with a bit more time in the cellar. A lovely vintage of this fine cuvée. (Drink between 2016-2035)
