A fresh and complex Rosé champagne by Gosset

The estate

A legacy of traditional know-how, the Gosset Champagne House has perpetuated its style over the centuries. The Gosset family has been established in Aÿ, a Champagne Grand Cru, since the 16th century. For 16 generations, the Gosset House has been perpetuating excellence. The current trailblazer is Odilon de Varine, the house's cellar master and deputy general manager. The house’s champagnes are recognisable in particular by the shape of their bottle, a reference to the "antique" bottles used in the 18th century.

The vineyard

osset owns plots of land in the Champagne Grands and Premiers Crus of the Côte des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims. The 140 hectares of vineyards are planted on the crus of Cumières, Courmas, Chamery, Avenay, Vertus, Villers-Marmery, Grauves, Avize Trépail and Cuis.

The wine

Gosset's Celebris Rosé Extra Brut 2007 stems from a blend of Chardonnay (Avize, Chouilly, Cramant, Vertus,...) and Pinot Noir (Ambonnay, Aÿ, Bouzy,...).

This champagne is the third edition of this Rosé Extra Brut champagne, after the 1998 and 2003 vintages.

Vinification and ageing

Traditional vinification and ageing on lees. Malolactic fermentation is avoided in order to preserve a pure and fruity aromatic expression. This champagne is aged for at least 10 years in the cellar and disgorged for at least 6 months before being put on the market. The dosage is 5 g/l.

The blend

Celebris Rosé Extra Brut 2007 by Gosset comprises a blend of Chardonnay (59%) and Pinot Noir (41%), of which 7% is red wine.

The tasting

Colour

A beautiful pale pink colour with ruby-cherry highlights.

Nose

The nose combines fruity (raspberry, strawberry, blueberry) and floral (lilac, violet) fragrances with subtle notes of bourbon vanilla.

Palate

Fresh and full, the mouth seduces with its fruity aromas (strawberry, raspberry, redcurrant) as well as its enfolding and silky feel until a finish with delicious notes of grapefruit and lemon.

Food and wine pairing

Enjoy as an apéritif, this vintage Rosé Champagne goes wonderfully well with seafood (pink tuna, roasted scampi, lobster, wild salmon), meat (slightly pink veal, suckling lamb or salt-meat) or desserts that include strawberries, raspberries or pink grapefruit.

Service

For an optimal tasting experience, it is advised to serve this champagne between 10 and 12°C.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The brilliant 2007 Celebris Rosé Extra Brut might be better described as úil de perdrix, so subtle is its hue; cellar master Odilon de Varine commented that the idea behind the wine was not so much to produce a rosé as to produce a Celebris with more depth and richness. The wine wafts from the glass with a lovely bouquet of yellow orchard fruit, beeswax, pain d'epices and clear honey, followed by a full-bodied, broad and crisply fleshy palate with a deep and tight-knit core, a bright spine of acidity and a long, mineral finish. To my palate, this is the finest of Gosset's current releases, and it's well worth a special effort to seek out.
