Gosset Cuvee Celebris Extra Brut 2007
“Good vintage years ending in a ‘7’ have been few and far between since 1947. CELEBRIS 2007 benefits from 10 years ageing in the cellar, giving the vintage a fair maturity and fine balance.”
The 2007 Extra Brut Celebris is wonderfully silky, polished and refined. The flavors are bright and lifted throughout, reflecting the predominance of Chardonnay in the blend. Pink grapefruit, white pepper, brioche and crushed rocks all give the 2007 much of its translucence and weightless energy. The finish is dry, salivating and tense. In other words; classic Gosset. This is a terrific showing. The 2007 is 57% Chardonnay and 43% Pinot Noir from vineyards in Avize, Chouilly, Cremant, Vertus, Aÿ and Bouzy.
