THE NEW CUVÉE GRAND BLANC DE NOIRS, A LIMITED EDITION FOR THE FESTIVE SEASON A “RETURN TO OUR ROOTS” BY CHAMPAGNE GOSSET
The Cuvée Grand Blanc de Noirs, the latest addition for Champagne Gosset, plays an elegant tune. After having lain dormant for nine years in the dark and cool of the House’s caves, this new limited edition cuvée is unveiled in time for the end of year festivities and guarantees an exceptional taste experience.
A PRESTIGIOUS CUVÉE WITH A FRUIT AND FLORAL SIGNATURE
With its elegant gold-flecked appearance and its extremely fine mousse, the Grand Blanc de Noirs charms from the outset. 100% Pinot Noir (from Ambonnay, Ay, Verzy, Chigny-Les-Roses and Tauxieres) this highly elegant cuvée exhibits a nose of white fruit, hints of patisserie, along with a touch of white peach and baked apple.
The palate is supple and balanced revealing notes of honey, beeswax and confit citron, followed by a fresh, lively finish with a salty, almost iodine, tang. A perfect balance between the intensity of the aromas and the wine’s finesse allows the fruity structure of the pinots to fully express itself with surprising lightness and freshness.
GRAND BLANC DE NOIRS A CUVÉE OF EXCEPTIONAL HARMONY
With a low dosage, this prestige cuvée should be enjoyed in the company of a goat’s cheese such as Valençay, Langoustines roasted with sweet spices and black sesame or, more exotically, with a Bresse Chicken glazed Chinese-style.
« This limited edition cuvée is a tribute to the finesse and elegance of Pinot Noir used in our other GOSSET wines. A unique experience that we wanted to share with aficionados and supporters of the House. »
Odilon de Varine, Champagne GOSSET Cellar Master
« The nose shows powerful potential and beautiful concentration. The palate is a riot of flavours. You might expect a champagne like this to be nothing but power but it is no such thing, It is above all freshness and delicacy which greet you and leave you with an impression of great harmony. »
FABRICE SOMMIER, MOF sommelier,
Restaurant and HR Director Groupe Georges Blanc
« Yellow straw colour with hints of cooper, lots of small and elegant bubbles. Very aromatic nose, rich & complex (vinous) displaying at first notes of winter apple, and quince, then opening up into wild strawberries. The palate is equally seductive, rich and textured, with lots of small red fruits, and a touch of creaminess. Long & elegant finish with a lively acidity and minerality. »
JOËLLE MARTI-BARON, Sommelier
« Appetizingly dry but deliciously moreish, with exhilarating finesse, it is at once aérien et vineux, beguiling and bracing, complex and pure, generous and graceful, subtle and sumptuous. A great wine, and a hugely worthwhile addition to an already excellent range. »
