CHAMPAGNE GOSSET, '12 ANS DE CAVE A MINIMA' BRUT LIMITED RELEASE

 

CHAMPAGNE, FRANCE

 

 

Whether you’re a dedicated Champagne collector or simply looking for your next celebratory bottle, today’s Gosset Limited Edition ‘12 Ans de Cave a Minima’ is worth your attention. Aged more than 12 years sur lie and primarily based on the 2006 vintage (with the remainder coming from older reserve vintages), this Champagne boasts an opulent profile of ginger, blood orange, lemon, and shortbread with a finish that goes on and on. This is a magnificent Champagne, and we were lucky to secure an allocation for our customers (and dare we say ourselves?). Founded in Aÿ in 1584 by Pierre Gosset, Champagne Gosset is the oldest wine house in Champagne, and the house’s focus on powerful, full-bodied Champagnes has changed little over the centuries. These are the complex, rich Champagnes of your dreams, boasting all the complexity of fine Bordeaux or Burgundy—complemented by the ultra-fine perlage of bubbles, adding unrivaled precision and finesse. Don’t delay in securing your order with special Concierge-only pricing! 

 

The ‘12 Ans de Cave a Minima’ is crafted primarily from the 2006 vintage, noted for well-structured and generous wines, and is an equal blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from crus including Avize, Les Mesnil, Oger, Ambonnay, Aÿ, and Verzy. Bottled in 2007 and disgorged in late 2019, this wine matured more than 12 years on the lees in Gosset’s caves. Gosset notably avoids malolactic fermentation, and this wine beautifully balances the richness gained from extended lees aging with the freshness that is maintained from avoiding malolactic fermentation. The finished wine (only 12,000 bottles produced) retains a lively freshness while still showcasing vinosity, complexity, and texture. Decanter notes that “the deep golden colour promises the richness that nose and palate duly deliver...the wine works as an indulgent aperitif but comes into its own with food.” With limited availability, this is a stunning Champagne that’s not to be missed!
