Gosset "Grand Rosé" Brut Rosé Champagne
Attractive pale pink hue. This has a delicate set of aromas of wild cherry and some lighter pastry notes, really fresh. The palate has bright, crisp red fruit flavor and a thread of grapefruit too. Really fine, elegant, crisp, dry and focused.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Dressed in a unique color that I would describe as a salmon pink with orange (or onion) reflections, Gosset's NV Grand Rosé Brut – a blend of 58% Chardonnay and 42% Pinot Noir, 8% red wine inclusive) – opens with a highly delicate and matured, vinous bouquet of red fruits. Pure, light, highly elegant, round and intense on the fruity-mineral palate, this is a picture-book Champagne of great finesse and delicacy. The persistent finish is lovely, pure and extremely stimulating in its salty/mineral freshness; whereas the fruit is articulated in an aristocratic reticence and perfectly integrated into the noble, overall expression. No malolactic fermentation. This is the kind of sample that I don't want to give away, but drink for myself. Gorgeous! (SR)
Light, orange-tinged pink. Lively spice- and mineral-accented red berry and citrus fruits on the nose, with a hint of cherry pit adding depth. Vibrant and precise on the palate, offering tangy, refreshingly bitter-edged blood orange and strawberry flavors. Clean, focused and stony on the dry, penetrating, persistent finish, which leaves a suave honeysuckle note behind. (JR)
This is a soft Champagne—more like a wine with bubbles than a crisp apéritif. With its relatively high dosage and ripe red fruit, it’s rich up front, cleaning up with acidity on the finish. Keep for a few more months and drink from 2018. (RV)
Fine and creamy, this harmonious Champagne layers mouthwatering acidity with layered flavors of plum tart, pastry cream, sliced almond and mandarin orange peel. Delivers threads of fragrant spice and smoky mineral. Drink now through 2021. (AN)

Quite deeply colored for a rosé. An elegant nose reflects mostly red berry fruit scents that include strawberry, cherry and raspberry that are trimmed in discreet yeast and citrus nuances. There is good complexity to the relatively refined flavors that are supported by a firm effervescence on the moderately persistent finish. This isn't quite as dry as I personally prefer but it is certainly attractive.
