Delicate colour of salmon-pink rose petals. An explosion of strawberry aromas on the bouquet, rich expressive notes of fresh strawberries underlined with hints of concentrated strawberry jam. A bowl of ripe strawberries covered with a spoonful of stewed strawberries with a lovely freshness. The palate is well structured with a perfect balance of freshness and roundness of fruit. It is dominated by voluptuous flavours of red fruit such as wild strawberries delivering a sweet, enveloping sensation on the 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.
