2006 Henri Goutorbe "Special Club" Grand Cru Brut Champagne

SKU #1346579 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Disgorged in May 2018, this release of Goutorbe's 2006 Brut Grand Cru Special Club is showing very well indeed, bursting from the glass with a rich bouquet of warm biscuits, confit lemons, ginger, honeycomb and smoky yellow orchard fruit. On the palate, the wine is broad and full-bodied, with superb concentration, ripe acids and a fleshy, vinous profile, its mousse already nicely refined. The finish is long and lusty. This is a gourmand Champagne, dominated by Pinot Noir from Aÿ, that will work well at table. (WK) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2006 Brut Spécial Club is a powerful, bombastic wine that showcases the natural intensity of Aÿ. Baked apple tart, spice, butter and a touch of tropical fruit all develop as the 2006 opens in the glass, showing off its creamy, expansive personality. Radiant and inviting, the 2006 is showing well today. Dosage is 8.5 grams per liter. Disgorged: April 19, 2020. (AG) Inner quote mark (11/2020)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Baked raspberry and melon notes are ripe and fragrant on the nose and palate, joining accents of toast, spun honey and ground coffee in this balanced Champagne. Tightly meshed, with mouthwatering acidity, this lingers on the spiced finish. (AN) Inner quote mark (10/2018)

K&L Notes

Tom Stevenson: "Henri Goutorbe is one of the more important growers in Champagne... Generally excellent rich, well-structured Champagnes—always satisfying to drink. Goutorbe’s Grand Cru Spécial Club is in a different class." (World Encyclopedia of Champagne and Sparkling Wine)
