Grand Millesime is a blend of 59% Pinot Noir and 41% Chardonnay. The wine has been vinified and aged on lees with malolactic fermentation avoided, as per Gosset’s house style. This preserves the fruit aromas of the wine while allowing the wines to undergo longer ageing (5 years on lees). Dosage is 4 g/l to maintain balance without masking the wine’s personality.
A wonderfully fresh and expressive first impression reveals pear and peach which develops into notes of candied orange and marzipan. The finely poised, full-bodied palate remains incredibly light, with every sip revealing notes of damson and Mirabelle plum followed by zesty notes of rhubarb. Sustained by a bold liveliness, the wine finishes satisfyingly with just a hint of salinity.
