Pale straw yellow in colour with golden hues. A very fine perlage, this cuvée is open and expressive. It shows fresh flavours of apricot and white peach on the bouquet with hawthorn undertones. The palate shows citrus notes coming through with precision and are balanced by the richness of the fruit flavours on a crisp yet dry finish.

For four centuries, great care has been taken to maintain the reputation of the brand, and to preserve a family know-how in making champagne. In 1584 Pierre Gosset, alderman of Aÿ 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 Aÿ and, from some hundreds of leagues further South, the wine of Beaune. Both were made from the same grape varieties Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The reputation of the wine of Aÿ was such that François 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 Aÿ began to bubble, and the Gosset family turned naturally to the production of Champagne.
