We were able to get some more of this Champagne after many request for more. The Champagnes from Gosset are very mineral-driven that develop incredible complexity with bottle age. Gosset's Champagnes do not go through malo-lactic fermentation and are the ultimate in purity, focus, and persistence. The signature of the 2012 vintage pairs nicely with the Gosset house style, and the 2012 Grand Millesime is an impressive example. A blend of 67% Chardonnay, 33% Pinot Noir from 10 different Champagne villages. The dosage is 8g/l, which I think is perfect for the house style. We typically perfer their Millesime bottling a little more than the Celebris, which tends to be a little austere. This Champagne already has a high score from William Kelley of the Wine Advocate, and it's at a great price too!
