2006 Philipponnat "Clos de Goisses" Brut Champagne 6-Pack (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1419941 96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2006 Clos des Goisses is stellar, but it is also going to need quite a bit of time to come into its own. Powerful and ample in the best of the Goisses style, the 2006 hits the palate with serious intensity. Orchard fruits, lemon oil, white flowers and almonds are some of the many notes that open up in the glass, but, as is often the case with young Goisses, it is the wine's gravitas that is front and center. Even with all of its overtness, though, the 2006 retains striking, crystalline purity. I imagine the 2006 will reward Champagne lovers with many decades of truly exceptional drinking. The only thing the 2006 needs is time. The question is: How much? (AG) Inner quote mark (8/2016)

Outer quote mark Of the younger vintages of Clos des Goisses still out on the market, the 2006 is the one I would reach for to drink today, as it has aged in a fairly brisk manner for this bottling and today is flat out delicious at the present time, albeit, still with many decades of potential life ahead of it. The cépages of the 2006 is sixty-five percent pinot noir and thirty-five percent chardonnay and it was disgorged in May of 2015. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a complex blend of apple, hazelnut, a lovely base of the vineyard’s soil, smoky overtones, fresh-baked bread and incipient notes of musky floral tones in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, fullbodied, open and classy, with fine depth in the core, pinpoint bubbles, bright acids and a long, elegant and complex finish. I really like the bounce and backend length here. 2019-2055. Inner quote mark (7/2019)

Outer quote mark A statuesque Champagne, with a firm, well-sculpted frame swathed in a fine and creamy mousse, featuring notes of yellow plum, pastry, candied ginger and spring blossom. Delivers a long, chalky finish. Disgorged October 2015. Drink now through 2030. (AN, Web-2016) Inner quote mark

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Firm straw colour. Really distinctive nose -- rather minerally and intense. Soars out of the glass. The bead is just a little coarse and the wine positively screams for attention. Although the dosage is so low, the wine actually tastes quite rich, although it finishes very firmly and dry. A really personality-laden wine. A whole percentage point more potent than most. Kerpow! 18/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (7/2016)
