Gosset 'Grand Rose' Brut Champagne France
The Grand Brut RosÃ© 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 â€” perhaps wild strawberry (cream or as a coulis) â€” giving a soft, coated sensation. It is round with a beautifully fresh finish.
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 RosÃ© Brut also pairs well with fish or shellfish.
This vibrant rosÃ© is tightly knit and racy, with a floral overtone and flavors of peach skin, white cherry, whole-grain toast and chalky mineral showing finely honed precision as they ride the creamy, detailed mousse. Disgorged May 2018. Drink now through 2024.

A pale-pink rosÃ©, this has shades of raspberries, rosehips and rhubarb touching the earthy limestone scent of Champagne. Itâ€™s concentrated and lasting, with a clean quinine bitterness that will pair well with sashimi.

Bottled in 2014 and disgorged in June 2018, the NV Grand RosÃ© Brut offers up an attractive bouquet of sweet red apples, fresh pastry and orange rind. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, concentrated and powerful, built around a bright spine of acidity and a tight-knit core but with enough substance to cover its structural bones and offer great promise for medium-term cellaring. This is an intense, elegantly austere wine that exemplifies the Gosset style.
