INFORMATION OF INTEREST Gosset Excellence Brut
Colour: A crystal-clear appearance, pale golden colour with yellow hue. Fine effervescence, lively and imperious, evenly distributed throughout the glass, fed by a constant stream of lively bubbles. Light and lasting ribbon.
Aroma: The first sensation in nose is intense, elegant and warm, first and foremost a vehicle for mellow, potent yet very fresh floral notes, such as honey suckle, wisteria, white jasmine and vine blossom, rapidly giving way to mature, fruity aromas, from delicately perfumed melt-in-the-mouth garden pears to the sweet, more identifiable perfumes of exotic fruits, such as pineapple, guava and mango. On pouring, from this protective, rich and complex yet not overbearing cocoon arise subtle hints of butter and caramel followed by a warm fragrance of gingerbread and cinnamon. The finish reveals a trace of pear liqueur to complement the overall harmony of the olfactory sensation.
Taste: On first taste is invigorating and jubilant, a taste which is both fresh and delicate, following on from the initial sensation of crispness and a well-established vitality to suggest the richness of a blend where floral aromas have all but disappeared, replaced by the sweet and comforting flavours of ripe, fleshy fruits, such as bush peaches, nectarines and greengages. His mouthful deploys great volume, a profound density and vinosity, which are characteristics of this type of champagne, whilst the blend remains discrete. An earthy taste with hints of minerals released from sun baked stones can be detected, revealing the subtle fragrance if spices, such as cinnamon, cardamom and green pepper. On finish is smooth, delicate, irresistible, where deliciously sensual flavours of candied fruit, cinnamon cake and liquorice can clearly be identified.
We can take it with saltwater fish, such as bass, thornback ray, dory, sole, turbot, with a sea-salt, coating, grilled, fried or roasted, served on the bone. Perhaps garnished with simple or elaborate citrus fruit or butter sauces or served in their own juices; free-range poultry, such as chicken, farm-reared guinea fowl, young duck from Nantes or Ruen reared in their own habitat, or hay and cabbage-fed rabbit, which may be braised, roasted or casseroled.
