A first-class champagne, unsurpassed and thanks to the unique chalk terroir subtle and fine. The icing on the cake are those noble crus that add a distinctive individuality to the noble quality and origin: this is the privilege of small, proud traditional (family) companies such as Gosset, the oldest wine house in Champagne. Classic champagne, balance of vinous Pinot and fresh Chardonnay.

Vinification / aging

The style Gosset is characterized by the long maturation period on the yeast. Already at the Grande Réserve it is a good four years! Due to this long storage time and the gentle treatment of the base wines, Gosset Champagne reach a unique and complex character. The conscious renouncement of the malolactic fermentation supports the creaminess of the mousse. Although Gosset uses a large part of Chardonnay in the blend, they are characterized by the famous Grands Noirs from Aÿ. Characteristics are the deep color, the extremely creamy perlage and a powerful, delicious taste.

History

Great honor for Champagne Gosset: in 2010 and just on the 425th anniversary, the Guide Hachette awarded the Champagne Gosset Grande Réserve the Coup de Coeur and the Grappe d'Or as the best wine of the year! Gosset, the oldest wine house of Champagne, was founded in 1584. At a time when the wines were still and no bubbles where found in any Champagne. In the 18th century they started with the actual champagne production. In 1994 the house was sold by the Gosset family to the Renaud-Cointreau family. Today, Jean-Pierre Cointreau is at the helm of the company, which he continues in the spirit of Gossets. The headquarters remain traditional in the heart of Champagne, in Aÿ, while the main part of the cellars was moved to Epernay for production, in a stately home, which until 2009 housed Laurent Perrier. Like most Champagne houses, Gosset itself has few own vineyards. It works together with about 200 different winegrowers, with whom one has closed long-term purchase contracts.
