  • Introduction

    • “Celebris is the most exceptional expression of the Gosset style, interpreted through the lens of are markable vintage. We elevate the raw material of freshness, structure, aging potential and dynamism in order to take the wine to its pinnacle. It takes ten years or more in the cellar to reveal all its depth, its great aromatic complexity, to allow the expression of persistent minerality, of infinite purity and delicacy. Time here is in no way a constraint, it is an asset, a privilege.” — Cellarmaster Odilon de Varine

  • CELEBRIS Extra Brut — 2008 – Vinous – 96 Points

    “Offers up hints of apricot, brioche, baked apple tart, white pepper, chamomile and dried flowers. Extended time on the lees yields terrific flavor and textural complexity. This is an especially deep, vinous Champagne from Gosset.”

  • CELEBRIS Rosé Brut — 2008 – Cellar Selection – Wine Enthusiast – 95 Points

    “Fruity while also textured. It is a structured wine, full of minerals and still amazingly young. With its freshness almost entirely intact and few signs of maturity, it could obviously age further.” 

  • CELEBRIS Rosé Brut — 2008 – Jeb Dunnuck – 95 Points

    “Offering beautiful freshness and purity, with cherry blossom, grapefruit, and pastry crust, and it has a pillowy mousse and a bit more tension through the back end, with a refreshing lift of acidity. A very attractive wine.” 

  • Champagne Gosset CELEBRIS Rosé Extra Brut — 2008 – Wine Spectator – 94 Points

    A rich rosé in a vinous style, with steeped raspberry and black cherry fruit flavors and an aromatic overtone of whole grain toast, crystallized honey and salted almond. Fine and creamy in texture, with a firm backbone of well-knit acidity creating a mouthwatering impression on the lightly chalky, herb- and spice-laced finish.
