  • Tasting Notes

    • The Grand Brut Rosé is a soft hue of salmon pink with a few ruby-cherry reflections. The nose is clearly marked by strawberries. Well-structured with a constant tension between freshness and fruity roundness, the wine is dominated by a red pulpy fruit — perhaps wild strawberry (cream or as a coulis) — giving a soft, coated sensation. It is round with a beautifully fresh finish.

      “This is almost a vintage. Indeed, I added just a very little amount of reserve wines. The low dosage gives a nice balance. The red wines from Bouzy and Ambonnay are in perfect balance with the majority of the Chardonnay.” Jean-Pierre Mareigner, Cellarmaster

      Suggested Serving Temperatures: Between 8 C and 10 C (46 F and 50 F)

      Suggested Pairings: Due to the gentle nature of this champagne, fruit is an ideal match; as is foie gras for the daring and for the fat and sweetness of the base of this wine. The Grand Rosé Brut also pairs well with fish or shellfish.

Reviews

  • Champagne Gosset Grand Rosé Brut — Non Vintage – The Wine Advocate – 92 Points

    Notes of tangerine, peach, white flowers and wheat toast preface the latest rendition of Gosset's NV Brut Grand Rosé, a medium to full-bodied, pillowy and charming wine with a fleshy core of fruit, chalky structure and tangy acids. Elegantly vinous and flavorful, it's a fine success.

  • Champagne Gosset Grand Rosé Brut — Non Vintage – Wine Spectator – 92 Points

    A minerally rosé Champagne with a crisp, lacy mousse, this is tightly meshed and balanced, offering a finely detailed range of crunchy white peach, spun honey, pink grapefruit pith and ground ginger. Creamy and lingering on the chalk-tinged finish.

    Oeil de perdrix tint. Once again,the nose is quite restrained with its wisps of strawberry, raspberry, cherry and yeasty hints.The racy and refined medium-bodied flavors possess a lovely texture that is reinforced by the fine but firm citrus-tinged mousse that carries over to the clean and notably dry but not really austere finale. This too could use better depth, but it still is quite lovely.

  • Champagne Gosset Grand Rosé Brut — NV – Wine Enthusiast – 93 Points

    Heading towards dryness, this pale-colored rosé Champagne is also rich. Its red-currant and crisp apple flavors are laced with citrus zest to give a wine that has fine balance.
