For four century, great care has benn taken to maintain the reputation of the brand, and to preserve a family know-how in making champagne. In 1584 Pierre Gosset, alderman of Ay and wine-grower, made still, mostly red, wines from 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 Ay and , from some hundreds of leagues further South, the wine of Beaune. Both were made from the same grape varietals Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The reputation of the wine of Ay was such that Francois the First had his own winery built there, which is now owned by Champagne Gosset. Then, in the 18th century the wine made in and around Ay began to bubble, and the Gosset family turned naturally to the production of champagne. At Gosset, most of the cuvees are presented in the old style bottle, a replica of the one used in the 18th and 19th centuries. We carefully avoid malolactic fermentation so that the wines keep their natural freshness. Read less

/ This rich and complex bottling of 56 percent Chardonnay (almost entirely grand cru vineyards) and 44 percent Pinot Noir (grand and premier cru vineyards) displays a light gold color with prominent floral and autolytic aromas, smoky, petrol nuances and honey with butter. Rich and toasty on the attack, it reveals medium acidity on the palate and a full rich mouthfeel.

Best of the Year - Top 100 Wines of 2006/ An attractively perfumed wine, with white flowers, cut grass and thyme. To taste, it is soft, with the delicacy of chardonnay giving an elegance to the intense green, crisp flavors. This should be a long-lived wine -- at least 10 years.

/ The fruit of this wine is youthful, almost primary in its exotic ripeness, while the acidity holds it tight and clean. Complex biscuit scents over a pleasantly bitter, mineral impression balance the fruit. Serve it with a simple roast striped bass, or with something more intensely flavored, like the monkfish wrapped in pancetta.

/ [A] 1999 that seemed more successful than most included the impressively tight-knit Gosset 1999.
