    December 26, 2021 - Intense nose of fresh and baked apple, green pear, lemon, bergamot, croissant dough, and fresh almonds. Incredibly drinkable High acidity gives it a perfect crispness but the overarching impression is of richness. It’s like a patisserie on Christmas morning. Very long finish. Good value.

    April 4, 2021 - Aromas of shortbread, mineral, slate and touch of cream. Flavors of mineral, slate, toast and hint of lime. Ends with a mineral driven finish of 15-20 seconds. Continues to be a really nice Champagne and probably need to stock up.

    January 1, 2021 - This drinks well above its price range.
    You can always count on Gosset for great yeast autolysis character.
    It does, however, retain enough acidity and freshness to keep everything in focus.
    A bargain!

    January 1, 2021 - Very good. Crisp and sharp with a pleasant yeasty quality. Good fine mousse. Clean finish.

    December 31, 2020 - After five years in my small, modest cellar, right to the new taste of the citizens of Hamburg, this succulent bottle was precisely where you want it to be. No more and no less. Cork lightly soaked and well compressed, quite fine for recorking. It still retains a lot of strength and a level of bubbles inappropriate to its age. On the nose, its strong accent of hawthorn flower stands out, another notes of pastry oven and melon liqueur are in the background. Tremendous merengue mousse with a sweet but balanced acidity as ripe pineapple, which I do not dislike at all, and a steely and salty finish. Under 90? What a joke! Really lush stuff recommended in New Year Eve. I wish you a very Happy New Year!

    Tras cinco años en mi bodeguita, justo al nuevo gusto de los habitantes de Hamburgo, esta suculenta botella estaba precisamente donde uno desea que esté. Ni más ni menos. Corcho ligeramente empapado y bien comprimido, ideal para recorchar. Todavía conserva mucha fuerza y un nivel de burbujas impropios de su edad.
    En nariz sobresale su marcado acento a flor de espino, las notas de horno de pasteleria y de licor de melon se encuentran en un segundo plano. Tremendo mousse a merengue con una dulce aunque equilibrada acidez cómo de piña madura, lo cual no me desagrada del todo, y un acerado y saladito final. ¿Por debajo de 90? Menuda broma. Realmente merece la pena este exuberante champán para Nochevieja. ¡Feliz Año!
