Champagne is a type of sparkling wine from Champagne. From celebrating special events and life milestones to simple catchups with friends or family dinners, there’s something about the sound of a popping cork that evokes the happiest of feelings. This French specialty wine is made adhering to the strictest of standards and an intricate and intensive process. The result is high-quality Champagne that reflects each Maison’s heritage and honors the grapes, ground, climate, people, and environment that nurtures the wine into existence.
Gosset is the oldest wine Maison in the Champagne region, launching in 1584. Pierre Fosset, who was the alderman of Aÿ and a winegrower, initially produced still reds. However, in the 18th century, like many wines at the time, they started to ferment in the bottle, so he naturally took advantage of the conditions and turned to Champagne. Now, under the Cointreau umbrella, Gosset remains one of the most prestigious houses, both in France and abroad. The range has four categories, including New, Antique, Héritage, and Celebris. Cuvée Extra-Brut sits under the New banner and is a beautiful “everyday” Champagne, perfect for any occasion, including regular Wednesdays. However, if you’re looking to celebrate something more special, then the Celebris Vintage 2007 Extra Brut or Rosé is ideal. Finally, anything from the Antique collection comes in a replica of the bottle that became the symbol of Maison Gosset.
