Discover Clos des Goisses 2009 : PHILIPPONNAT’s champagnes flagship. Vintage 2009 is a mature and contrasted harvest offering a very fruity and reasonably acid year.
This cuvée de prestige is elaborated from a blend composed of 61% Pinot noir and 39% Chardonnay raised during 8 years! Thanks to its extra-brut dosage (4.25gr/l), the vinosity and minerality of this exceptional vineyard is clearly visible. The partial wood vinification (37%) lead to more complexity without premature oxidation. There is no malolactic fermentation, which enables the wine’s natural acidity to compensate the powerful character of the terroir.
The nose is very expressive and complex and unveils spicy and toasty notes. The palate is fresh and mineral, and develops morello cherries and spicy aromas. This intense and structured champagne offers a very nice length in mouth.
Clos des Goisses is a very fine wine before being a very fine champagne. A perfect and unforgettable match for strong-flavoured dishes such as game, truffles, caviar and soft cheeses. This champagne deserves to be decanted into a carafe before being served to allow it to breathe.
Available on the market only when perfectly mature, it can then be kept for several decades and will continue to develop magnificently in the right conditions.
Clos des Goisses 2009 from PHILIPPONNAT is presented in its free gift box.
