- One of the best vintages in recent memory
- Grand Cru Chardonnay and Pinot Noir blend
- Only the fourth edition of Gosset Celebris Rosé
An exceptionally rare champagne, the 2008 vintage is only the fourth edition of Gosset Celebris Rosé in the past 25 years, 1998, 2003 and 2007.
Very small production from this highly anticipated vintage after almost 12 years of ageing on lees. A blend of 72% Chardonnay Grand Cru fruit, 28% Pinot Noir, including 8% red wine. The villages Avize, Aÿ, Ambonnay and Cramant are at the core of the blend.
Superb pale pink and copper in our beautiful Emperor crystal tulips. The bead is very slender and constant and gives rise to freshly picked wild strawberries, coupled with rose and wallflowers. Floral scents and slightly herbal aromas are enriched with hints of vanilla spice. Delicate and very fresh, this champagne was bottled with only 6.5g/L of dosage.
“Celebris is the most exceptional expression of the Gosset style, interpreted through the lens of are markable vintage. We elevate the raw material of freshness, structure, aging potential and dynamism in order to take the wine to its pinnacle. It takes ten years or more in the cellar to reveal all its depth, its great aromatic complexity, to allow the expression of persistent minerality, of infinite purity and delicacy. Time here is in no way a constraint, it is an asset, a privilege.” — Cellarmaster Odilon de Varine
