For over four centuries, great care has been taken to preserve a family know-how in the making of our wines of Champagne. In 1584, Pierre Gosset, alderman of Aÿ and wine-grower made still wines, mostly red, with 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 several hundreds of leagues further south, the wines of Beaune. Both were made from the same grape varieties Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Then, in the 18th century, the wines made in and around Aÿ began to bubble.
Today, the Gosset cuvées are still presented in the antique flask identical to the one used since the 18th century. We carefully avoid malo-lactic fermentation so that the wines keep all their natural fruitiness.
