Join us for our first wine dinner of the year!
Tuesday 29th January
At Bow Lane!
As many of you will know, Champagne Gosset is the oldest wine producer in Champagne (as opposed to the oldest Champagne house) – founded in Aÿ in 1584 by Pierre Gosset, it is well into its fifth century of production. Always one of the smaller Grandes Marques houses, Gosset only exceeded a million bottles a year for the first time in 2005; still less than five per cent the production of the biggest Champagne houses.
Along with the quality of the Champagne, Gosset is perhaps best known for their unique bottles, first introduced in the 18th century. The Champagnes are never going to be cheap; they are produced mainly from 1er Cru and Grand Cru sites, and aged for far longer than most before release.
Bertrand Verduzier, Gosset’s International Director, will be at Bow Lane to present the range of Gosset’s Champagnes, from the Extra-Brut on arrival, to the Prestige Cuvee ‘Celebris’. It is our good fortune that Gosset also owns our favourite Cognac producer, Frapin; the only major Cognac producer that controls production from the vineyard to the bottle. Bertrand will also be showing Frapin’s excellent VSOP, and their single vineyard XO, Fontpinot.
