The oldest Wine House in Champagne: Aÿ 1584
The history of the Gosset family goes back five centuries to Jean Gosset (1484-1556), “Lord of Aÿ and Mareuil”, who was the first official ancestor in the lineage. The origins of “Maison Gosset” itself date back to the year 1584 when Pierre Gosset, Lord and Alderman of Aÿ, decided to set up a négociant business.
16 generations, all of direct lineage, have continued to build upon his work in Aÿ-Champagne and ensured that Champagne Gosset’s savoir-faire, based on the family’s traditional craftmanship, lives on.
An independent family-owned House
Maison Gosset: a traditional know-how
For over four centuries, every effort has been made to perpetuate the family know-how behind our Champagnes.
In 1584, Pierre Gosset, winemaker and Alderman in Aÿ, produced still wines, most of which were red, from grapes grown in his own vineyards.
A unique bottle
Jean Gosset first used the antique bottle that would become the emblem of the Gosset Champagne House in 1760.
This bottle is an exclusive model that used to be part of the family’s collection of ancestral bottles. It owes its name to the “antique glass” colour of the glass paste from which it is produced.
This extremely elegant bottle is bearing a neck label known as the “necklace medallion” named after Albert Gosset (the only one of its kind in the Champagne region) is instantly recognisable.
Our Champagne Terroir
Our “Grands Vins de Champagne”, each with their own distinctive personality, reflect the authenticity and diversity of the region’s terroirs and draw their generosity from carefully selected grapes grown in 140 hectares of vines across the whole of the Champagne region. This provides us with a large palette of crus (villages) with which to work and allows us to create harmonious Champagnes from one vintage to the next, ensuring that the Gosset style lives on and remains instantly recognisable year after year.
An inimitable Gosset Style
The Gosset style is a great mineral freshness that precedes a deep vinosity..
Our very original style of wine is owed to a unique vinification process which preserves the natural freshness of the fruit. This process seeks to bring out and preserve the wines’ full aromatic expression and ensure a long cellar life, thus offering wine connoisseurs and wine lovers drinking experiences of unrivalled richness, balance and complexity.
