    Bastille Day in Beaune, 7/24/2008 93 points

    (Philipponat Clos des Goisses) The evening started innocently enough with a 1999 Philipponat Clos des Goisses, which had a pungent nose that was on the anise side with aromas of wet hay and citrus, but also possessing roses and minerals. It had rocket-like acidity, with rocky and racy flavors of pungent pee and wet hay. While certainly fresh, it lacked a bit of depth that I had hoped for based on the nose, but it was still an intense bubbly built for the long haul.

Sommelier Journal

  • By Catherine Fallis, MS, CWP
    July 2008, (See more on Sommelier Journal...)

    (Philipponnat Champagne Brut Clos des Goisses) Straw yellow in color, this rare, complex beauty has initial terroir-driven aromas of dust, chalk, slate, and earth, followed by ginger, lemon, pink-grapefruit, pear-compote, and honeyed, yeasty notes. The perfume is soft, delicate, and complex. A silky, round, creamy entry is followed by caramel, ginger-ale, honey, vanilla, rosewater, slate, apple-pie, and strawberry flavors. It is extremely elegant and complex, with a fine, airy mousse and a precise, flawless focus. One of the greatest Champagnes on earth.
