Blanc de Blancs are generally regarded as the lighter, more elegant members of the Champagne family, and, if this expressive and involving effort from Gosset hits the mark for refinement, it goes well beyond the norm in terms of sheer richness and depth. It is as complex as Blanc de Blancs is wont to get and sports layer upon layer of brioche, biscuits and cream, but for all of its autolyzed extras it is still spry and vital with life to spare. It is an altogether compelling Champagne best sipped slowly and on its own, but we would not refuse a few oysters if offered.
A very pure and pristine nose that offers a wealth of white flowers, sweet, fresh, yeasty notes and a core of chardonnay fruits that run from lemon to apple and pear notes. The palate's boldly stated; acidity is punchy and bursts up through rich, ripe lemon and nectarine flavor, with gentle toasty nuts wafting through the finish. Long, bold and beautiful.
The NV Brut Grand Blanc de Blancs is a dry, piercing wine endowed with tons of energy and sheer class. Lemon, mint, slate, ash and apricots flow effortlessly from this pointed, beautifully articulated Champagne. This is a dazzling showing from Gosset. This is Lot # L1236121. (AG)
This is really quite elegant with its expressive yet cool nose of pear, green apple, Meyer lemon, white flower and plenty of yeast character. The sense of refinement continues onto the intense and attractively saline-inflected flavors that are supported by a firm but not aggressive mousse, all wrapped in a delicious and inviting finish as each sip invites the next. While this could be enjoyed now I would be inclined to allow it a few more years of cellar time first.
Light yellow-gold. Smoky, lees-accented pear and honeydew on the pungent nose, with hints of iodine and anise adding complexity. Juicy orchard and citrus fruit flavors tighten up in the mid-palate, showing very good clarity and thrust. The smoky quality repeats on the smooth, mineral-tinged finish, which clings with excellent focus and tenacity. Lot #L346 1116. (JR)
This finely meshed Champagne features vibrant acidity and a satiny texture, with hints of apricot tart, marzipan and pastry cream enlivened by bright lemon curd, chopped nut and tangy fleur de sel accents.
A pale and smoky chardonnay, manifesting the power this variety can achieve in Champagne. The wine feels tight as it smolders through wood smoke toward flavors of heirloom cider apples and saline mineral length. Supple, rich and edgy, this needs cellar time to mellow.
