The NV Extra Brut Cuvee Blanc de Blancs Celebris is 100% Chardonnay composed of vintages 1995, 1996, 1998 and 1999. This powerful, sinewy wine possesses a striking combination of soaring aromatics and deep, rich fruit all buttressed by notable structure. The ripe tropical fruit is intermingled with sweet notes of oak, flowers and minerals in a gorgeous expression of Chardonnay. Although the wine already shows some pretty signs of early tertiary complexity, there is more than enough vibrancy and freshness to ensure at least a decade of very fine drinking. The cork is labeled C 7386, and this bottle was disgorged early December, 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020. I was extremely impressed with the wines I tasted from Gosset. The house style is one of finely-sculpted wines that possess striking clarity and precision. Gosset favors oak aging for their top selections and malolactic fermentation is always blocked. The top of the line Celebris range sees very low dosage. From top to bottom this is an exceptional line-up from one of Champagne’s most historic houses.
