Facing south, the vineyard of Philliponat Champagne House lies on the finest slopes of Mareuil-Sur-Ay: the soil is perfect for the production of their signature Clos des Goisses champagne. The 65% Pinot Noir, and 35% Chardonnay blend exhibits a shimmery hue and delicate, thin foam. Excellent intensity and elegance, fresh butter notes sustained with lovely mineral aromas, as wells as distinct expressions of citrus and candied fruits. Beautiful structure on the palate, well-defined and concentrated minerals; the creamy attack reveals intense, velvety length. Clos de Goisses 2002 is a divine surprise.
