The small village of Aÿ is the place where we find the Domaine Gatinois, with a century-old history whose grapes have been used for a long time in the assembly of the great Bollinger labels.
Naturally Gaisons has created its own range of very high quality Champagne in which the undisputed protagonist is Pinot Noir which in these lands finds the ideal conditions to reach very high quality levels.
The grapes are grown with eco-sustainable techniques and traditionally hand-made work processes.
A must-try Champagne, with a great personality that gives freshness and flavor.

Name: Gatinois Start-up year: 1921 Cultivated hectares: 7 Address: 7 Rue Marcel Mailly - Aÿ (France) Web Site: www.champagnegatinois.com
Since Nicolas LE CACHEUR and Françoise REMY married in 1696, there have been 12 family generations on the famous hillsides of Aÿ, over the past three centuries.
In the early 20th century, great-grandfather Emile MICHEL-LE CACHEUR was a fervent defender of the winemakers interests in Champagne. In 1911, he became one of the founding members of todays SGV champagne syndicate. His daughter, Marie, married Charles GATINOIS in 1921 and continued her fathers work: the GATINOIS name has appeared on the bottles ever since.
Emile and Micheline GATINOIS took over the domaine after the Second World War. Between 1980 and 2010, their daughter Marie and her husband Pierre CHEVAL were at the helm of the prestigious family company. Dedication is clearly a family trait which has been passed on, as Pierre is the founder of the Villa Bissinger (The National Institute of Wines from Champagne) and currently chairs the Champagne Landscapes Association that lead to their listing to the Unesco World Heritage list in 2015. His son, Louis, now perpetuates the familys 300 years of knowhow.
