Marks and reviews
Boasting a heritage of traditional know-how, the Gosset Champagne House has perpetuated its style over the centuries. The Gosset family has been established in Aÿ, a Grand Cru of Champagne, since the 16th century. For 16 generations, the Gosset Champagne House has been perpetuating excellence. The house is currently guarded by Odilon de Varine, the Cellar Master and Deputy General Manager. The house's champagnes are recognisable particularly due to the distinctive shape of its bottle, which was inspired by the "antique" bottles used in the 18th century.
Gosset owns plots of land in the Grands Crus and Premiers Crus of the Côte des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims. The 140 hectares of vineyards are planted on the crus of Cumières, Courmas, Chamery, Avenay, Vertus, Villers-Marmery, Grauves, Avize Trépail and Cuis.
The 2002 vintage is an exceptional year, characterised by very healthy grapes with a pleasant acidity. The Chardonnay grapes express their minerality, aromas of flowers and exotic fruits, while the Pinot Noirs showcase their complexity through notes of red and black fruits with hints of spice and brioche.
Gosset's Celebris Vintage Extra Brut 2002 is made from the vineyards of Chouilly, Cramant, Mesnil sur Oger, Ay and Bouzy Verzy.

Gosset’s Celebris Vintage Extra Brut 2002 is a blend of Chardonnay (52%) and Pinot Noir (48%).
Clear, with a beautiful golden colour.
Complex and firm, the nose combines notes of Victoria pineapple, yellow fruit and pear with a hint of violet.
The palate is limpid and very precise. The palate is seduced by this champagne’s freshness, its purity and its fruity aromas. The finish has refreshing lemon notes.
