The nose delivers floral aromas such as hawthorn lilac and violet as well as fruity aromas of apricot apple and fresh pineapple. After the wine has warmed a little discreet notes of coffee will appear. On the palate the wine is s harmonious fresh and elegant. On the first sip notes of yellow fruits pineapple apricot and mirabelle plum complement each other. Notes of white flowers hawthorn lilac and jasmine will appear afterwards. This beautifully crisp and fresh cuvée leaves a feeling of purity and fruitiness on the palate followed by beautiful flavours of green apple and lemon."

Offering beautiful freshness and purity the 2008 Celebreis Brut Rose is 72% Chardonnay and the rest Pinot Noir (8% of which is red wine) and pours a pure salmon hue. It is fresh with cherry blossom grapefruit and pastry crust and it has a pillowy mousse and a bit more tension through the back end with a refreshing lift of acidity. A very attractive wine it will be wonderful to enjoy now or over the next 20 years. The oldest wine house in Champagne esta

A Chardonnay-dominated rosé this Champagne is fruity while also textured. It is a structured wine full of minerals and still amazingly young. With its freshness almost entirely intact and few signs of maturity the wine could obviously age further. Drink now because it is a great wine alternatively age at least until 2025. ROGER VOSS

The skillfully crafted Gosset Champagnes remain in good hands with the current cellar master Odilon de Varine as evidenced by this fascinating rosé Champagne. Over the past 25 years the vintage rosé version of this Celebris cuvée has been released only for the 1998 2003 2007 and 2008 vintages. Produced from a blend of grand cru Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with a dosage of 5g/L. The complex bouquet is redolent with delicious pastry notes of the famous pink biscuit of Reims and ripe blackberries. On the palate this is a powerful densely textured but beautifully balanced Champagne that merits cellaring for several years for it to come completely into focus.


Wine Spectator: 94 Points

A rich rosé in a vinous style with steeped raspberry and black cherry fruit flavors and an aromatic overtone of whole grain toast crystallized honey and salted almond. Fine and creamy in texture with a firm backbone of well-knit acidity creating a mouthwatering impression on the lightly chalky herb- and spice-laced finish. Chardonnay and Pinot. Drink now through 2028. 50 cases imported. ? AN

The 2008 Brut Rosé Celebris is an absolutely gorgeous Champagne that captures the essence of the Gosset house style. Bright and ethereal in feel the 2008 is deceptive in its first impression but it has plenty of depth to match its decidedly regal understated personality. The 6.5 grams of dosage feels perfectly judged just enough to fill out the layers and avoid some of the starkness these wines can show but not so much as to be overpowering. Crushed red berry fruit chalk mint and white pepper build as this finely-sculpted Rosé shows off its charms. This is beautifully done. Dosage is 6.5 grams per liter.

Wine Advocate: 94+ Points

Offering up aromas of honeycomb warm biscuits red berries and spices the just-released 2008 Extra Brut Celebris Rosé is full-bodied ample and layered with a concentrated even expansive mid-palate; but if this Celebris Rosé leads with its voluminous core of fruit it's its tangy spine of acidity and taut structure that dominate the bone-dry finish. That structure will demand a bit of patience but this is an impressive effort from Gosset.
