  • 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

  • Grand Rosé Brut — Non Vintage – Wine Enthusiast – 91 Points

    “A fruity rosé Champagne, this is fresh with a fine touch of red-currants. It does have a little bottle aging, with a yeasty ripeness. The wine has bright acidity at the end.” 

  • Grand Rosé Brut — NV – Wine & Spirits – 91 Points

    “The wine’s rich mushroom scents come up to meet the steely red fruit, lending an earthy presence that lasts.”

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

    “A minerally rosé Champagne, with a chalky underpinning to the delicate weave of apricot, crunchy pear, blanched almond and clementine. This fresh version offers good precision and focus in an elegant, integrated package.” 

  • 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.
