94 points Tyson Stelzer (The Champagne Guide): "(2013 base vintage; disgorged April 2018; 100% chardonnay; predominantly from longstanding growers in Avize, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Chouilly, Cramant, Villers-Marmery, Trépail and Ambonnay; 6g/L dosage). The Gosset house style of refined minerality and thrilling malic acidity has shone in its blanc de blancs since its inaugural 2011 base release, and never more brilliantly than it does in this 2013 base of bright, pale straw hue. Youthful purity and focus rise with grand cru fruit presence and impressive concentration of pinpoint lemon and generous white peach, pear and golden delicious apple. This pristine fruit melds seamlessly with the brioche, almond nougat, shortbread, fresh vanilla and spice of lees age, and reductive nuances of struck flint. Ripe yet full and energetic malic acidity brings drive and focus to a finish of impressive length and tension, energising frothing salt minerality of heightened presence. It holds excellent harmony and poise on the finish, with fruit, minerality, dosage and malic acidity intricately entwined and uplifting. A thrilling blanc de blancs with the confidence to hold its poise for many years to come. (2020-2021)"
93 points Wine Spectator: "[$87/750ml list] Bright and graceful, this leads on the nose with racy chalk and smoke notes, a minerally underpinning for delicate flavors of Gala apple, blanched almond, fleur de sel and pickled ginger. Seamless and fresh, with a long finish. Drink now through 2025. 200 cases imported. (12/15/20)"
92 points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "The latest rendition of Gosset's NV Brut Grand Blanc de Blancs reveals youthful aromas of citrus zest, white flowers and almond paste. Medium to full-bodied, bright and fleshy, with tangy acids and a pillowy mousse, it concludes with chalky grip. This Champagne's structure suggests that it should develop gracefully in the cellar. Drink: 2021-2035. (Sep 2021)"
