Regarding the Champagne Philipponnat Clos des Goisses 2012 casket
Discover Clos des Goisses 2012 : PHILIPPONNAT’s champagnes flagship.
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 (62%) 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.
There is a beautiful effervescence. The nose is fruity and elegant with a gourmet finish of pastry cream. On the palate, the attack is fresh and it's also elegant and offers a long and mineral finish.
Clos des Goisses is a very fine wine before being a very fine champagne. A perfect and unforgettable match with seafood dishes such lobster, iodized fish or even 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 2012 from PHILIPPONNAT is presented in its free gift box. This is a superb vintage, even more intense and aromatic than 2008.
