Gosset Grand Rose Brut (1.5L Magnum)
This is a rosé with a high proportion of Chardonnay to create a Champagne that is equally at ease as an aperitif or with a meal. The Chardonnay gives freshness and precision and the addition of a little red wine from Bouzy and Ambonnay contribute fine fruit notes.
On the eye: A soft swirl of rose petal pink with hints of salmon pink and cherry red highlights.
On the nose: Unmistakably strawberry - in all its forms from freshly picked to strawberry jam.
On the palate: Well-structured, with a balance between the tension of the freshness and luscious red fruit dominance (wild strawberries and cream or coulis) softly envelop the palate, with a smooth, superbly fresh finish.
The richness and sweetness of the wine make it an excellent match for Foie gras, wild salmon, fish and seafood tapas, grilled veal, poultry, as well as red and forest fruits such as strawberries, raspberries and blueberries.
Varietals: 50% Chardonnay, 50% Pinot Noir
