The oldest wine house from Champagne, founded in 1584 in Aÿ
For over four centuries, the wine house Gosset represents its know-how in blending and aging of handcrafted wines from Champagne.
In 1584, Pierre Gosset, lay judge of Aÿ and winemaker, produced wines, often red, with the harvest of his own vines. At this time, two wines struggled for the Kings table of France: the wine of Aÿ and, a few hundred miles further south, the wine of Beaune. Both were made from the same noble grape varieties: Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. In the 18th century, the wines of Aÿ and the region became sparkling.
Even today, the cuvées are presented in an antique bottle, an exact reproduction of the one used since the 18th century by Champagne Gosset.
The malolactic fermentation is carefully avoided in order to preserve the malic acid which supports the natural fruity aroma of the wines.
Gosset blends unite the best growths of the Marne Valley (Grands Crus and Premiers Crus) with an average grade of 95% on the official Crus scale.
Suzanne Gosset: a female episode
Many were the widows of Champagne whose history retained their names during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. This is the case of Suzanne Gosset (1885-1970) who, on the eve of the First World War, had married André Gosset (1881-1955) and could impose certain ideas imbued with modernism such as rosé champagne in transparent bottles.
