Grand Rosé Brut
The Wine Advocate
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.
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.
