Champagne Gosset Brand Overview & Buy Champagnes Same Day Delivery
The Gosset family have been producing champagne from vineyards in Aÿ since 1584, making them one of, if not the, oldest champagne producers in existence today. This small producer is run today by descendants Michel and Christian Gosset who manage around 24 acres of vineyard. Within the 24 acres are 14 acres which lie on the best hillsides of Aÿ in the Lieux-dits of Asniers, Croix Courcelle, Froide Terre and Loiselu. A further 8.5 acres are scattered across the Premier Crus of Avenay, Dizy and Mareuil. Finally, a tiny half acre plot of Grand Cru in Chouilly (a Chardonnay village) helps to create the distinctive Champagne Gosset style. Since 1994 it has been owned by the Cognac house, Frapin, and Jean-Pierre Cointreau is currently CEO of both companies.
Gosset has some rather famous neighbours, including Bollinger whose winery is located directly opposite. However, production is much below that of the larger houses, at around 1.3 million bottles. All Gosset champagnes are ‘recently disgorged’, normally with a high proportion of Chardonnay and without malolactic fermentation. This preserves acidity which in turn keeps the champagne fresh for much longer. The Gosset style is dry but not acidic, creamy, biscuity and yeasty.
Today the wines are presented in an antique bottle, an exact replica of the one used since the eighteenth century by Champagne Gosset.
