'Richness, Strength, Freshness.'
A traditional know-how since 1584.
For over four centuries, great care has been taken to preserve a family know-how in the making of our wines of Champagne.
In 1584, Pierre Gosset, alderman of Aÿ and winegrower 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. Both were made from the same grape varieties Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. 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.
We carefully avoid malolactic fermentation so that the wines keep all their natural fruitiness.
Blend - Chardonnay 30%; Pinot Noir 45%; Pinot Meunier 25%
In The Glass - Pale gold/yellow in colour, light, limpid and crystalline, fizzing with thousands of bubbles.
On The Nose - An open and expressive nose, with rich flavours of plump, ripe yellow stone fruit such as apricots or peaches or even dried fruit (almonds).
On The Palate - From the first sip the palate is rich, rounded and powerful. It shows a lovely development with a soft freshness combined.
Food Matches - Perfect as a refreshing accompaniment to simple grilled meat dishes in the summer heat. The light salty tang on the Champagne’s finish reflects wonderfully with crisp, pan-fried garden vegetables, cooked and seasoned à la Passard...
Serve - Between 8° and 10° C.
Cellar - Up to 3 years.
