Heady aromas of hawthorn flowers, lilacs and honeysuckle mingle on the nose with hints of citrus zest and pear. In the mouth it is the fruit flavours of plum, grapefruit and Sicilian lemon as well as a distinctive salty minerality which come to the fore and linger long on the palate. This complexity of flavours and aromas make this excellent Champagne a fine partner for scallops, salt-marsh lamb or a whole sea bass baked in salt. Alternatively, the Grand Millesime is equally at home served alone as a showstopping celebratory aperitif or opened to honour that special, once-in-a-lifetime moment.
2006 was a particularly good year for Pinot Noir which makes up 56% of this assemblage with the other 44% consisting of Chardonnay. The clement September weather allowed Pinot Noir grapes to reach excellent maturation, lending considerable body and sumptuous ripe berry flavours to this exquisite vintage Champagne.
Despite having been aged for around ten years in Gosset’s traditional cellars in Epernay, the Grand Millesime 2006 is still remarkably fresh and vivacious. This is thanks to Gosset’s insistence on avoiding malolactic fermentation for all but one of its Champagnes. This robust acidity and the intensity of flavours and aromas in the Grand Millesime mean that this is an excellent candidate for extended cellaring up until around 2024.
