Gosset Cuvée Celebris 1998

CEL-VINTAGE-98-EXTRA-BRUTlbFlagship of Gosset this champagne shows a very good evolution. A blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir the robe is intense if deep gold colour with very slow bubbles. This is rich champagne with very earthy aromas such as yeast, dried apricot and dried hay. The palate is round, voluptuous with more summer fruits like ripe yellow peach and apricot. You can keep this champagne in your cellar for a further ten years for even more richness. But for now I would suggest to enjoy it with a medium strong creamy cheese such as a Chaource or ripe Somerset Brie with apricot chutney.
