First created by Suzanne Gosset in the 1950s, Grand Rosé from Champagne Gosset is a delicate blend that has since become a bestseller for the prestigious house.

As head of Champagne Gosset at the time, Suzanne was looking to produce an aperitif wine, and came up with the concept of adding a small amount of red wine to the white, resulting in a pale and dry rosé.

Comprising 55% Chardonnay and 45% Pinot Noir (of which 8% is red wine), Grand Rosé takes on hues of salmon and rose petal with cherry reflections, and is both fresh and fruity. The high proportion of Chardonnay brings a crispness, while the addition of red wines from Bouzy and Ambonnay introduces fruity notes. As per Gosset tradition, malolactic fermentation is carefully avoided in order to preserve the natural aromas and allow for longer ageing.

Now owned by the Renaud-Cointreau family, who also own Cognac Frapin, Champagne Gosset is the oldest house in the Champagne region having been founded by Pierre Gosset in 1584.
