Champage Gosset dinner. It’s not about the bubbles, but they help!

Ahead of our Champagne Gosset wine dinner in the club room at Fredericks Odilon de Varine chief wine maker & deputy MD talked to Kiran about his wine making approach.

There followed another memorable wine diner with each course of the menu designed to complement the wines.

Highlights included the way the toasty & nutty notes of the Grande Reserve were complimented by the pan fried herb gnocchi with Pecorino sauce and the way the Bream, mushrooms and cream worked with the superbly refined and complex & yet fresh Celebris 2004. Matches made in Heaven!

Gosset is the oldest known producer of wine in Champagne, its origins going back to 1584.Situated in the tiny Grand Cru village of Aÿ, 5km from Epernay, Gosset’s famous neighbours include Bollinger. However, production is much below that of the larger houses, at around 1.3 million bottles per year.All Gosset champagnes are ‘recently disgorged’, normally with a high proportion of Chardonnay.

Along with a fabulous matched dinner we tasted some of their best Champagnes and rounded off the evening with  a glass of Cognac Frapin VSOP.
