Philipponnat Clos des Goisses Champagne Blend 2008

$239

One of the highlights of this important Champagne vintage, Philipponnat's 2008 Extra Brut Clos des Goisses is fabulous. Rich, ample and yet also full of the tension that makes the Champagnes of this year so appealing, the 2008 Goisses is crystalline and incredibly pure. Clos des Goisses has a track record of aging brilliantly for decades. Even knowing that, I am surprised by how harmonious the 2008 is at this early stage in its life... Don't miss it!

Full and spectacular. Really broad and lush on the midpalate. Surprisingly approachable and delicious now but with the stuffing and balance to go for ages.

Open and ready for business. The Bollinger grand Annee is still my favorite 08 but this is not too far behind.

Lite godisliknande konstig, outvecklad doft. Bokna gula äpplen, fet, fatig smak, grillad citron och citrontarte. Långt och gott. Bör ligga 10–15 år till enl. källor.

2008 vintage. At global launch, Ham Yard Hotel. On the nose, ripe baked apple and cirrus fruits. Quite primary. On the palate, more developed and ripe than expected. Great acidity, but lacking in depth and complexity at this stage. Medium plus finish. Not singing. Might need more time.
