Gosset Matchmakers 2020

Closing date: 28 Aug 2020

Now in its 5th year, Gosset Matchmakers Competition is aimed at sommeliers and chefs that have only been in the trade for 5 years or fewer, but are on track to be the future stars of our industry

Each sommelier and chef team is tasked to come up with a dish that pairs with the Gosset Grand Rosé Brut. The dish must be sustainable and use autumnal seasonal ingredients, to fit the finals timing of early October.

2020 has turned out to be a particularly hard year for the industry, so for this edition we are opening the competition up to all sommeliers and chefs whether you are currently in work or not. We think it is hugely important that all have the opportunity to benefit from being part of this fantastic competition.

To give you the chance to taste the Grand Rosé, we will be hosting a live webinar on 16 July. You’ll be guided through the tasting by Xavier Rousset MS of Trade and Bertrand Verduzier from Gosset. Sommelier Melody Wong will also be taking part and share her experience of judging the competition last year, and traveling to France with the winners. The speakers will offer insights in to how best to pair the wine and ideas on how to think of unique and interesting ingredients.

If you would like to take part in this year’s competition and have a bottle of Grand Rosé sent to you for the online tasting then please fill in the below form. This will also sign you up to the Grand Rosé tasting webinar.

NB - Stock levels of Gosset Grand Rosé Brut are currently limited. We will be in touch to confirm if you will be receiving a sample.
