In 1584, Pierre Gosset, councilor of Aÿ and winegrower, mainly made red, still wines with the harvest from his own vineyards. This makes Gosset the oldest winery in Champagne. However, in the 18th century, the production of still wines made in and around Aÿ changed to bubbly. The malolactic fermentation is carefully avoided to preserve the malic acid, which provides the natural fruity aromas. Gosset assembles the best Crus of the Marne district (Grand Crus and Premier Crus), with an average classification of 95% on the official Cru scale ("échelle des crus").
The grapes for this Champagne mainly come from the following municipalities/Cru's: Aÿ, Bouzy, Ambonnay, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Villers-Marmery... Gosset uses only the best Crus from the Marne district with an average rating of 95% on the official quality scale. The dosage for the Grande Reserve Brut is 8 grams per liter. Malolactic fermentation is deliberately avoided, in order to retain as much primary fruit as possible in the wine. The wine is kept in the cellars for at least 3 years before disgorgement takes place.
The Grande Reserve is a blend of 43% Chardonnay, 42% Pinot Noir and 15% Pinot Meunier. The Grande Réserve Brut is the signature of Champagne Gosset. It is the true expression of what Gosset should radiate, according to Jean Pierre Mareigner, the cellar master. The nose has a dominant scent of fruit combined with refreshing notes. The attack is creamy and soft. The Chardonnay provides the fruitiness, while the Pinot Noir is responsible for the structure of the wine. In short; subtle and a classic character!

In 1584, Pierre Gosset, alderman of Aÿ and winegrower, mainly made red, still wines with the harvest from his own vineyards. This makes Gosset the oldest winery in Champagne. At that time, champagne as we know it did not yet exist. Gosset sold a still, mostly red wine made from the grapes from its own vineyards. Champagne and wine from Beaune in Burgundy competed for the favor of the French kings at the time. When, thanks to the invention of Dom Pérignon, sparkling champagne could be made and sold in bottles, the house of Gosset also became involved in the production of white sparkling champagne. And in the 18th century the production of still wines made in and around Aÿ changed to bubbles. Malolactic fermentation is carefully avoided in order to preserve the malic acid, which provides the natural fruity aromas. Gosset assembles the best Crus of the Marne district (Grand Crus and Premier Crus), with an average classification of 95% on the official Cru scale ("échelle des crus").
