We know we’re not going to sound very humble saying this, but here we go… Sometimes when you’ve been really good or really bad or you desperately need to impress, only a famous Champagne is going to cut that mustard. In that situation grab life by the Gosset…
Gosset is the oldest Champagne house there is. Although that kind of depends on who you ask or how you measure it. It is kind of like asking a Nottingham resident which is the oldest pub in Britain, you’ll probably get three different answers from three different people. However, a document in the National Library in Paris says that Pierre Gosset was making and selling wine in 1584, and that is the first known reference to people selling Champagne. Now owned by Cointreau, this producer us unique and legendary. They refuse to use malolactic fermentation, which maintains the natural fruit acids and flavours. Their bottles rock a label on the neck so that you can still see it in an ice bucket, how smart is that? And this non-vintage wine is aged on the lees for 5 years, which is quite frankly a bit crazy. What are you still reading this for? Get one in your basket, you won’t be sorry for long.
