The history of the winery has its roots in the distant 16th century, when Pierre Gosset started his winegrowing business in Aÿ, a charming French town belonging to the Marne department. From the beginning, he concentrated on the production of still wines, obtained exclusively from the grapes grown in their own vineyards. It was in the eighteenth century that they began to create the first bubbles. This precious family tradition has been handed down to the present day.

It is produced according to the so-called champenoise method or classic method, a method in which the wine substantially undergoes two different fermentations: the first, the alcoholic one (which it shares with the rest of the wines) takes place in vats for fermentation; the second instead takes place directly in the bottle and ensures that during this second procedure, thanks to particular yeasts, the wine also develops carbon dioxide (which will then give life to the famous bubbles when uncorked).
Straw yellow color with golden hues. Notes of pear, citrus peel, yellow flowers such as genette and mimosa emerge on the nose, caressed by a nuance of bread and a hint of anise. These first fragrances reveal an initial maturity. On the palate, the entry is decisive and frank, but the balance is attenuated on a rather vinous base. The vivacity of the wine is well balanced by a discreet dosage, while the effervescence gradually dissolves, leaving room for a creamier texture.
It can be accompanied by fish, shellfish, cheeses, appetizers and desserts. Furthermore, it is perfect for celebrating special occasions or for an informal toast with friends.
