Champagne Gosset

I drink quite bit of fizz, most of it unremarkable but enjoyable. Every now and then, though, I come across one thatís quite special, and reminds me of what the fuss is about. On Friday night we cracked a good-un.

Champagne Gosset Brut Excellence NV
Lovely open stylish fruity nose: aromatic, fresh, herby, appley. The palate is elegant and very fruity with lovely balancing acidity. Itís complex, full flavoured, but not at all clumsy. So overall, an unusual combination: a Champagne that is very fruity, but at the same time complex and stylish. Very good/excellent 92/100 (Great Western Wine)

I've tasted a couple of Gosset Champagnes and have to agree that I find them a cut above for the cash - at a couple of tastings I went to they've compared very favourably to Bollinger, Tattinger and various others - I particuarly liked the wonderful Grande Millesime, although the Grande Reserve is lovely too!

Completely different style altogether if we're talking about bubbly, but what's your take on Prosecco?

Tim, it's a while since I tried the full range (I remember a great vertical stretching back to 1952), but I was impressed.

Salil, I don't like Prosecco particularly. I mean, it's fine to drink n'all, but I haven't met one yet that has wowed me.
