  • Introduction

    • A great vintage, an exceptional year. This cuvée is the reflection of remarkable harvests. It is this decisive criterion that allows us to see whether or not a beautiful vintage cuvée emerges. This Gosset Grand Millésime is only the third predominantly Pinot Noir, after the 1990 and 2006 vintages. That year, we chose plots where the Pinot Noirs were particularly fresh and fine. The chardonnays selected have been selected for their lively and aromatic character.

  • Tasting Notes

    • An extremely fine and grouped effervescence. The dress is crystalline, luminous, and slightly golden. The nose is fruity, fresh, and tangy. Both greedy and elegant, it expresses pastry notes and aromas of fresh fruit: nougat, frangipane, candied orange, and mirabelle plum. A delicate note of passe-crassane pear carrying a touch of Williams pear liqueur can be guessed. A tonic wine, with a nice tension around the aromas of fresh fruits. Nectarine, yellow peach, and a tangy note of rhubarb develop in the mouth. The end of the mouth is clean, frank, saline, and mineral leaving a touch of bitterness and verbena.



  • Grand Millésime Brut — 2015 – Vinous – 93 Points

    “This is terrific. Bright and intensely floral, the 2015 bristles with all the energy that is such a signature of the Gosset house style. White flowers, mint and crushed flowers open first. The 2015 is distinguished by its sweet, resonant mid-palate and terrific depth. All the elements are so nicely balanced throughout.”

  • Grand Millésime Brut — 2015 – Wine Enthusiast – 95 Points

    “Having retained all its youthful acidity because there was no malolactic fermentation, the Champagne is brilliantly lit. Acidity and a light texture from the Pinot Noir in the blend give the wine a crisp edge with still-young citrus.” 

  • Grand Millésime Brut — 2015 – Jeb Dunnuck – 92 Points

    “Vibrant and ripe with fresh bread dough, grapefruit, and white flowers. It is pure on the palate, with ripe, crystalline pear and a beautifully clean stony texture.” 

  • Grand Millésime Brut — 2015 – Wine Spectator – 94 Points

    “A firm, focused version, this swathes a chiseled spine of acidity in a raw, silky texture and finely meshed flavors of yellow peach, orange liqueur, honeycomb and chopped almond. A rich streak of salinity drives the well-cut, spiced finish..”
