Wine Description

(NV Vintage) Refined and creamy, with delicate acidity that finds fine balance with the layers of poached apple and pear, lemon cake, ground ginger, smoke and almond cream flavors. Very elegant.

    From the oldest winemaking house in Champagne. The Gosset Brut Excellence merits it name and the Grand Cru village of Ay which is home to the Gosset House. It is layered in complexity, showing the power and body you get from pinot noir with the elegant flavors and balance from chardonnay. Rich and warm flavors of baked apple pie with a lingering creaminess and nuttiness. This is the wine for folks who like 'em rich and nutty ;) Paired with Sweet potato blini topped with Chive Mascarpone & Black American at Etoile in Edgartown.

    (NV Vintage) Made in a nonmalolactic style, with the initial fermentation in small oak barrels, this cuvee ages three years on the lees. It relies on the 2000 vintage, with 12 percent reserve wines from 1999. Lovely combination of flavor and harmony. Loads of mineral- and spice-tinged fruit highlight this creamy, concentrated brut. It's dry, with tangy acidity and a lingering finish. 45 percent Pinot Noir, 42 percent Chardonnay and 13 percent Pinot Meunier.

    (NV Vintage) 45% Pinot Noir; 42% Chardonnay; 13% Pinot Meunier. Close in richness and depth if a bit younger in cast, this wine boasts a solid, creamy mousse and nicely toasty, yeasty notes backed up by crisp acids and a lasting aftertaste. We also tasted this wine from magnum and are happy to suggest it to you for special occasions for its added richness and roundness.
