A term typically reserved for?Champagne and Sparkling Wines, non-vintage or simply ?NV? on a label indicates a blend of finished wines from different vintages (years of harvest). To make non-vintage?Champagne, typically the current year?s harvest (in other words, the current vintage) forms the base of the blend. Finished wines from previous years, called ?vins de reserve? are blended in at approximately 10-50% of the total volume in order to achieve the flavor, complexity, body and acidity for the desired house style. A tiny proportion of Champagnes are made from a single?vintage.
This is a relatively new Champagne for Gosset, which has traditionally focused on Pinot Noir. Drawing mainly from C?te des Blancs vineyards, it's crisply elegant with a fine mineral texture and taut character. It's poised for further development in bottle. Drink from 2018.
