Gosset Champagne began in 1584 and is the oldest "wine house" in Champagne. 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, 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. Gosset blends together the best Crus of the Marne district (Grands Crus and Premiers Crus) with a 95% average classification on the official quality scale ("échelle des crus"). The house does not undertake malolactic fermentation which preserves acidity giving the wine in a fresher style for much longer and is currently owned by the Cointreau family.
