New Cuvee Rosé Petite Douceur Launched by Champagne Gosset
23rd September 2014
Champagne Gosset, the oldest wine house in Champagne, Aÿ, 1584 – currently celebrating its 430th anniversary – has launched a new cuvée, Petite Douceur Rosé. This extra dry wine achieves a delicate balance between sweetness and acidity and is the perfect accompaniment for desserts or afternoon tea, as well as savoury dishes with a ‘sweet and sour’ element.
Jean-Pierre Mareigner, Champagne Gosset’s cellar master for 30 years, wanted to play on the subtle balance between sweetness and acidity. “I wanted to create a wine to associate with the desserts I recall from my childhood: Crêpes Suzette, pear tart with cinnamon and cakes with a hint of orange blossom.”
Champagne Gosset is part of the Renaud-Cointreau family group, whose president of Jean-Pierre Cointreau comments: “Gosset is renowned for using its traditional, artisanal style of craftsmanship to produce wines that are rich and elegant and the perfect accompaniment to gastronomic discovery.”
