K&L Notes

Gosset is a traditional producer, using a proportion of old oak for the Grand Reserve. None of their Champagnes ever go through malolactic. On their web site, they list the Grand Reserve as being composed of 46% Chardonnay, 39% Pinot Noir and 15% Pinot Meunier including 12% reserve wines from two vintages. When I met the sales manager of Gosset, she told me that they also use a small amount of Fromenteau (Pinot Gris) Petit Meslier & Arbanne in this reserve wine. Those are the almost extinct, native varietals of Champagne and it would certainly explain some of the Grand Reserve's exotic complexity if they were indeed in the blend. This is big, rich, layered Champagne with brioche and pear aromas and a long, bright finish from the suppressed malo. It is snappy enough to serve for toasting, but has enough guts for a salmon dinner and enough exotic intrigue to keep the interest of a Champagne enthusiast all night. It should keep well, and even improve for a couple of years if you like the taste of aged Champagne. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer)
