    1998 Champagne

    Maison Philipponnat's Clos des Goisses comes from one of the few enclosed sites of the Champagne region. The 1998 vintage is 65% Pinot Noir and 35% Chardonnay.

    Despite extremely contrasted weather conditions, the 1998 Clos de Goisses is a powerful, rich champagne. The intense gold hued champagne reveals lovely complex aromas of ripe fruits and flowers associated with smoky, mineral notes. The palate also offers strength. This clos shows a more masculine character and seduces with its complexity and lovely mineral intensity.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The estate's 1998 Clos des Goisses could not possibly be more different than the 1999. This is a wonderfully dense, richly-textured Clos des Goisses with a deep, baritone-like expression of fruit. Ripe apricots, honey and flowers flow from the glass, followed by suggestions of smoke, mint and minerals that add further complexity as the wine opens up in the glass. This is a powerful, masculine Clos des Goisses that will repay cellaring although it is awfully hard to resist even at this early stage. The 1998 Clos des Goisses is 65% Pinot Noir and 35% Chardonnay, partially fermented in oak. This bottle was disgorged in March 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2023.
