One of the region’s most legendary and revered Champagnes; Gosset’s original Charter of Excellence has remained the same since the 1500’s, with different owners seeing no need to amend it.

 

In 1584 Pierre Gosset, alderman of Aÿ and wine-grower, made still wines from the grapes he harvested from his own vines. In those days, two wines vied for pride of place at the table of the Kings of France : the wine of Aÿ and, from some hundreds of leagues further South, the wine of Beaune. Both were made from the same grape varieties Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The reputation of the wine of Aÿ was such that François the First had his own winery built there, which is now owned by Champagne Gosset. Then, in the 18th century the wine made in and around Aÿ began to bubble, and the Gosset family turned naturally to the production of champagne. 

 

For four centuries, great care has been taken to maintain the reputation of the brand, and to preserve a family know-how in making champagne.

 

Gosset insist on only using the juice from the first pressing of their grapes and primary fermentation takes place in small oak barrels. Disgorgement and riddling are still done manually. Gosset set themselves apart from the majority of other Champagne houses by disallowing any malolactic fermentation to take place. This results in a higher acidity in the Champagne and a much slower maturing rate. When producing their Grand Rose; Gosset add only the finest Reserve wines from their cellars.
