Concernant le Champagne Philipponnat Clos des Goisses Juste Rosé 2006
Clos des Goisses Juste Rosé 2006 vintage from Maison Philipponnat expresses the intensity of an exceptional terroir. Already legendary for collectors and connoisseurs, only 2 to 3 thousand bottles of each vintage are produced.
This cuvée is elaborated from a blend composed of 63% Pinot noir and 37% Chardonnay. Traditional, partial vinification in wooden barrels leads 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 very low dosage (4.5 g/litre) gives full expression to the vinosity and minerality of this exceptional vineyard. The year 2006 gave birth to elegant and fruity champagnes.
To the eye, this cuvée shows a pale shade of pink, a thick ring of bubbles and extremely fine effervescence, while the nose is floral and fruity, with rich notes of citrus.
The mouth offers a creamy and mineral sensation revealing a perfect balance. The finish is clean, elegant and lingers in the mouth.
Clos des Goisses Juste Rosé is a very fine wine before being a very fine champagne, making it an excellent choice to accompany haute cuisine. The cuvée is also particularly enjoyable with pink meat, veal and lamb, as well as fish.
Clos des Goisses Juste Rosé can then be kept for several decades and will continue to develop magnificently in the right conditions.
