TASTING NOTES

"Gosset's 2004 Extra Brut Celebris is a powerful, bracing wine. Pinot Noir-infused red stone fruits, dried leaves, mint, herbs and spice notes, along with the low dosage, give the wine its distinctive combination of power, breadth and raciness. The 2004 needs a bit of time for the bouquet to open up, but when they do, the wine is quite expressive. Now 12 years after the vintage, the 2004 Celebris offers a good bit of aromatic and flavor intensity, with the slightly mature notes that are typical for a wine of this age. Chamomile, honey and lightly roasted almond are some of the nuances that linger through to the creamy, expansive finish. The 2005 is 55% Chardonnay (from Chouilly, Cramant and Le Mesnil sur Oger) and 45% Pinot Noir (from Aÿ, Bouzy and Verzy)." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"This rich Champagne is soft and creamy, with orange zest, ground anise and light, tangy acidity enlivening the glazed apricot and pastry crust flavors. Offers a bright, expressive finish. Drink now through 2022. 125 cases imported." Wine Spectator

"The 2004 Celebris Vintage Extra-Brut blends 55% Chardonnay from Chouilly, Cramant and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger with 45% Pinot Noir from Aÿ, Bouzy and Verzy. Intensely golden-yellow in color, the reductive yet dense and immensely aromatic bouquet reveals herbal/floral and mineral rather than fruity aromas. There are flavors from ancient, very small pear varieties from the empty glass. Full-bodied, fresh and elegant, this is a round and well-structured 2004 whose finish is still a bit dryish. Minty flavors are displayed in the fresh and evolved but also (still) discreet aftertaste. Tasted in August 2018 from lot L6125111 with a dosage of five grams per liter."
