    December 21, 2021 - A little Las Vegas hospitality (Las Vegas, NV): Been a while since I crossed paths with a bottle of this; I can't say that this has grown on me though. Very much a typical bottle of older Goisses, amply mature with the dirty funk that has you asking if it's corked or not. Some rancio, nutty notes, as well as oxidative flavours that remind me of dry sherry. Umami to the extreme and even though there is acidity, it doesn't feel integrated overall with the palate. To be honest, I find myself becoming less and less convinced about Goisses these days...

    November 21, 2021 - (aveugle) La magnifique couleur or trahit l'âge respectable, le nez est très expressif, noisette, épices douces, et aussi un peu de pomme. La bouche attaque très large, puis se resserre aussitôt pour proposer une acidité haute, qui lui donne une incroyable fraîcheur. Grosse persistance, certains pourront (en chipotant) regretter un léger manque de gourmandise pour que le plaisir soit total. Super bouteille en grande forme. 93+

    July 17, 2021 - Much better than the previous bottle, this one displayed explosive gas on opening so much that I spilled it. Light gold. The oxidation is right on the edge, adding a brown apple nuance. Good power and energy. If you wait one more day it might be too old to enjoy, though.

    July 3, 2021 - Julydisgorgement.

    Almost no pop with the cork. Some oxidative notes on the nose, yet still with a fine bead and excellent balance. A vinous bottle of Champagne, with excellent balance and clarity. Like drinking Chablis with fine bubbles. Still, I suspect this was not a proper bottle. I have had quite bit of variation in my bottles of this, and while really very good to outstanding, not one of the better bottles. 90

    (Phillipponat "Clos de Goisses") Absolutely stunning bottle of Champagne and my favorite 1996 from the vintage so far. Exotic intense nose of golden delicious apples, spice, yeast, minerals and wonderful salinity. Palate is a huge crescendo of fruit, spice and minerality with that killer '96 acidity that extends the neverending finish. Young but mindboggling.
