Champagne Gosset reveals its latest cuvee

22 March, 2016

Champagne Gosset is launching a new cuvee, which has been resting in house cellars for more than 15 years.


The cuvee – 15 ans de cave a minima - combines wines from several harvests, which is said to express the “true spirit and personality” of Champagne Gosset, the oldest winery in Champagne, rather than focusing on a single vintage. The wine, which is a 60% blend of Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir, was aged in cellars at a depth of more than 18 metres in 1999.

The house cellar master selected Pinot Noirs from Ambonnay, Ay and Mareuil/Ay and Chardonnays from Mesnil/ Oger, Cramant and Villers-Marmery. The producer says each varietal bestows the qualities of finesse, structure and depth required for the wine to retain its freshness over time.

In the glass ’15 ans de cave a minima’ has a deep golden hue with extremely fine bubbles. Aromas of yellow fruit combine with biscuit and sweet spices.

Looking back to look forward

Wine is a liquid time capsule. Drinking older vintages not only recalls the weather conditions and winemaking styles of the past, it encourages us to reflect upon our own histories. Such reminiscence often inclines towards romanticised nostalgia. Especially after the second bottle. But looking back is a great way of learning about the future.
