The history of the Gosset family goes back five centuries to Jean Gosset (1484-1556), “Lord of Aÿ and Mareuil”, who was the first official ancestor in the lineage. The origins of “Maison Gosset” itself date back to the year 1584 when Pierre Gosset, Lord and Alderman of Aÿ, decided to set up a négociant business.

Jean Gosset first used the antique bottle that would become the emblem of the Gosset Champagne House in 1760.This bottle is an exclusive model that used to be part of the family’s collection of ancestral bottles.
