Philipponnat Clos des Goisses is the best kept secret in Champagne – a single vineyard plot which spreads over 5.5 hectares, planted with around 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay. The plot of vineyard has been separated into 16 individual plots with different ages of vines. It is unique compared to any other single vineyard in Champagne as it is south-facing on an extremely steep slope, making the fruits - hence the wines produced - extra fruity and rich in flavour. Dosage is kept low around 4-5g/l to truly reflect this terroir-driven Champagne. With the unique qualities of this Champagne, it has a serious position among Champagne connoisseurs and sommeliers.
We have a tiny parcel of Philipponnat Clos des Goisses 2005 and think this worth paying attention to – scored 94 points by Allen Meadows and Antonio Galloni, we believe this crème de la crème will show it's charming side earlier than other vintages, thus worth to collect a few if you are looking for a top champagne to complete your cellar -

Strong aromas of petrol and yeast predominate at present over the elegant and pure aromas of citrus, white flowers and apple scents. As is usually the case there is a highly refined mouth feel to the wonderfully intense, rich and complex flavors that are shaped by a wonderfully fine effervescence, all wrapped in a notably dry finish. This is an unusually powerful vintage of Clos des Goisses and another interesting aspect is how dry it is for a 2005. While this could be enjoyed now I would suggest holding it for another 3 to 5 years first to allow a bit more overall depth to develop.

The 2005 Clos des Goisses is easily one of the wines of what turned out to be a complicated vintage. Just beginning to show the early signs of aromatic complexity, the 2005 graces the palate with the essence of candied lemon, almonds, chamomile, apricot and wild herbs. The 2005 is not the most complex or pedigreed Goisses, but it drinks beautifully today and should continue to deliver pleasure for another 15-20 years, perhaps more.
