Gosset Champagne Tasting Masterclass and Menu Pairing at Cord

August 2023

CORD by Le Cordon Bleu is hosting a special Tasting Masterclass and Menu Pairing in collaboration with Gosset on Monday 18th September.

In celebration of the renowned Gosset Matchmakers competition Cord is holding not one, but two events open to the general public to taste and enjoy Gosset Champagne. The oldest Champagne House, Gosset is known for the unique personality of its cuvées. Founded in 1584, the quality of Gosset wines, its style and its taste all remain unchanged, immutably reflecting the uniqueness of the Champagne terroirs and the atypical personality of the House.

Hosting the Tasting Masterclass will be Bertrand Verduzier, Gosset’s Global Business Director and Matthieu Longuere MS, Wine Development Manager for Le Cordon Bleu London. Bertrand Verduzier has over 20 years of experience working in the Champagne and fine wines industry, joining Gosset in 2015. Matthieu Longuere has extensive experience as sommelier for Michelin-starred restaurants and now oversees wine and beverage courses at the institute. A Master Sommelier, Matthieu also judges for numerous competitions, including Gosset Matchmakers, which is held annually at Cord.

Over the course of one hour, the hosts will guide you through a selection of four Gosset Champagnes, highlighting the differences between each and identifying the unique character of the wines. The wines featured in the tasting are; Gosset 12 ans de cave aminima rose, Gosset CELEBRIS Rose 2008, Gosset CELEBRIS Blanc de Blancs 2012 and Gosset Petite Douceur Rosé.
