Gosset released their “15 Ans” (pronounced “Quinze Ans”) last year, a non-vintage brut made from a blend of 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir, cellared in 1999. This was the “masterpiece” of Gosset’s cellar master of 30 years, Jean-Pierre Mareigner, who sadly passed away in the Spring of 2016, just a few weeks after releasing it. In his words:
“…prolonged aging in the cellars, with no malolactic fermentation to pass the time, enables our cuvée, cellared for a minimum of 15 years, to retain its freshness and elegance while improving its vinosity, complexity and fullness”.
Complex and powerful Champagne with a luxurious aromas of dried fruits, quince, biscuit, sweet spices and honey. An exceptionally fine wine which would happily take the place of Grand Cru white Burgundy with a meal – shellfish or white truffle dishes come to mind. Drinking now but will continue to age gracefully and gain complexity each year, for many years to come. We expect only a few hundred bottles of this exceptional champagne to be released to the UK.
Offered for sale in bond. Price shown is per case (6x75cl bottles) and excludes UK duty and VAT which will be charged at the prevailing rate when the wine lands in the UK.
