Champagne Gosset is the oldest Wine House in Champagne, dating way back to 1584. In 1584 Pierre Gosset, alderman of Aÿ and wine-grower, made still, mostly red, 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.
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. It wasn't until the 18th century that the family naturally turned to the production of champagne and today Gosset blends are made with grapes from the best villages of the Marne region. For four centuries great care has been taken to maintain the reputation of the brand, and to preserve the family know-how in making champagne.
