A generous and aromatic vintage Extra-Brut champagne

The producer

Boasting a heritage of traditional know-how, the Gosset Champagne House has perpetuated its style over the centuries. The Gosset family has been established in Aÿ, a Grand Cru of Champagne, since the 16th century. For 16 generations, the Gosset Champagne House has been perpetuating excellence. The house is currently guarded by Odilon de Varine, the Cellar Master and Deputy General Manager. The house's champagnes are recognisable particularly due to the distinctive shape of its bottle, which was inspired by the "antique" bottles used in the 18th century.

Celebris Vintage Extra Brut 2004: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

Colour

The colour is a beautiful pale yellow with emerald highlights. The effervescence is fine and persistent.

Nose

The nose reflects the maturity of the aromas through fragrances of frangipane, tarte Tatin, honey or salted butter caramel. The bouquet also blends refreshing notes of pear, pineapple and yellow-fleshed citrus fruits (combava, citron, lime).

Palate

The palate is seduced by this champagne’s tension and extreme precision. Saline and even iodine notes mingle with a complex aromatic palette marked by notes of Passe-Crassane pear, yellow grapefruit and Yuzu lemon. This champagne is unique in its purity, freshness, complexity and deliciousness.

Food and wine pairing

Ideal as an aperitif, Gosset's Celebris Vintage Extra Brut 2004 will complement dishes such as Aveyron lamb with artichokes, fir buds and Tonka beans or Brie de Meaux with bourbon vanilla.

Service

For an optimal tasting experience, serve between 10 and 12°C.
