Philipponnat Clos des Goisses Brut 2009
61% Pinot Noir, 39% Chardonnay. From their iconic, steep, south-facing riverside vineyard in Mareuil-sur-Ay, Philipponnat produces a wonderfully rich and explosive wine. The 2009 has notes of cherries, pepper, and spice with a fresh, mineral driven structure ending in a wonderfully long finish.
"The 2009 Extra Brut Clos des Goisses is showing brilliantly, unfurling in the glass with aromas of warm bread, fresh peach, ripe citrus fruit, lemon confit and fresh pastry. On the palate, it's full-bodied, deep and layered, with a textural attack that segues into a muscular, tight-knit core that's multidimensional and intensely mineral, concluding with a long finish. Only 20,000 bottles were produced—in other words, half the legal yield. This is a serious, structured Clos des Goisses that transcends the vintage's tendency to facility, and it will merit and reward extended bottle age." - William Kelley
