品種/Grapes：52% Chardonnay (Grand Cru), 44% Pinot Noir
The 2002 Vintage is one of the most beautiful of the last decade : very beautiful harvest during the second half of september with healthy grapes and a good acidity. The Chardonnay grapes with exotic and floral aromas show a good minerality. The Pinots Noirs are particularly full bodied and complex with red and black fruits aromas, a hint of spicies, toastiness and brioche.
IN THE GLASS:
Shimmering pale gold colours.
ON THE NOSE:
The nose delivers floral aromas such as hawthorn, lilac and violet as well as fruity aromas of apricot, apple and fresh pineapple. After the wine has warmed a little, discreet notes of coffee will appear.
ON THE PALATE:
It is harmonious, fresh and elegant. On the first sip, notes of yellow fruits, pineapple, apricot and mirabelle plum complement each other. Notes of white flowers, hawthorn, lilac and jasmine will appear afterwards. This beautifully crisp and fresh cuvée leaves a feeling of purity and fruitiness on the palate followed by beautiful flavours of green apple and lemon.

高仕達酒廠 GOSSET CHAMPAGNE
全香檳區歷史最悠久的始祖酒廠－Gosset高仕達香檳廠成立於1584年，發跡於法國香檳區著名的Aÿ村。Gosset 從十八世紀起就以釀製香檳聞名於世，酒莊現為Renaud Cointreau家族所擁有。著名的葡萄酒專家 Serena Sutcliffe形容Gosset Rosé粉紅香檳是大師級的作品，而Grand Réserve則是世界最棒的香檳之一。
Founded in Aÿ in 1584 by Pierre Gosset, Gosset is the oldest wine house in Champagne. It also remains one of the most prestigious, considered by many collectors and connoisseurs as the world’s preeminent name in luxury champagne. In 2009, this storied winemaker celebrated a landmark 425-year anniversary.
Gosset’s reputation for excellence starts on the vines. Its champagnes are composed almost entirely of grapes from Premier Cru and Grand Cru vineyards. Unlike most champagne producers, this illustrious wine house purposely avoids malolactic fermentation and always performs riddling and disgorging of prestige cuvées and large-format bottles by hand. Gosset champagnes are made with infinite care and kept in dark cellars for at least three years – and up to five for vintage and prestige cuvées – before release.
Gosset’s inimitable style – powerful and full-bodied, of unrivaled richness and staying power – has changed little over the centuries. Once a favorite of the kings and queens of France, it is now a fixture on the wine lists of some of the most lauded restaurants in the world, recognized by expert sommeliers for its exceptional capacity to enhance a wide range of cuisine.
Gosset’s legacy is today in the safekeeping of the Cointreau family, who also owns and manages the highly regarded Cognac Frapin. While other champagne houses are handing over the reigns to large corporations, the members of this family are personally involved in the winemaking practices that have, over 425 years, made Gosset the ultimate name in champagne. In 2009, the family announced the acquisition of a new property in the heart of Epernay, which, with space for up to 2.5 million bottles, will serve as an extension to its production facilities in Aÿ.
Gosset wines are made from a blend of Pinot noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. The house is known for its slightly sweet Brut Excellence and its vintage prestige cuvee Célebrisand Grand Millésime. The house also produced a commemorative wine the Quatrième Centenaire.
