2008 Philipponnat "Clos des Goisses - Juste" Rosé Champagne (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1490988 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Disgorged in March 2019, the 2008 Extra Brut Clos des Goisses Juste Rosé is a fabulous forthcoming release from Philipponnat, opening in the glass with aromas of rose petals, warm bread, red berries, papaya and spices. On the palate, it's full-bodied, ample and layered, with an incisive spine of acidity, excellent concentration and a tight-knit core, concluding with a long, intense and chalky finish. This is still a very youthful, tensile rosé and patience will be required of anyone hoping to drink it at its peak of maturity. Drink 2023 - 2055. (WK) 98+ Inner quote mark (8/2019)

Outer quote mark The Rosé is now made by the saignée rather than the assemblage method apparently; the change initiated in 2013…. 2008 therefore falls firmly to the ancient régime and, to my palate, could hardly be bettered; the soft bronze colour is discrete and charming; then come aromas of soft spice, the kitchen garden, gentle red fruits and a whisper of smoke. The palate is vinous, subtle, quietly seductive; figs and wild strawberry, the slightest hint of leather and game. Gastronomically festooned with potential, this is an outstanding wine to celebrate the fantastic reputations of vineyard and vintage alike. (SF) Inner quote mark (9/2019)

96 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2008 vintage of Clos des Goisses Juste Rosé is not yet released, but will be in the coming months. It was disgorged in March of 2019 and is a blend this year of fifty-two percent pinot noir and forty-eight percent chardonnay, so it mirrors the higher percentage of chardonnay in the blend this year that is also found in the non- Rosé Clos des Goisses 2008. The wine is young, properly reserved and absolutely stunning in its potential, offering up a precise and complex nose of tangerine, apple, chalky minerality, patissière, spring flowers and a nice touch of orange blossom as well in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, elegant in profile and tightly-knit today, with a lovely core, great focus and grip, supremely refined mousse and lovely length and grip on the perfectly balanced and nascently complex finish. This is a legend in the making. (Drink between 2028-2075) 96+ points Inner quote mark (6/2019)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2008 Clos des Goisses Juste Rosé is terrific. Over the last few months, the Juste Rosé has really come into its own. In most vintages, Just Rosé leans towards the airy side of the spectrum, but the 2008 packs a serious punch of both fruit depth and overall intensity as well as structure. Citrus, floral, mineral and blood orange notes add brightness and energy to a core of dense Pinot fruit in this deceptively pale yet beautifully resonant Rosé from Philipponnat. The 2008 finishes with tremendous depth and pure class. It is the best vintage of this wine yet. The blend is 58% Pinot Noir and 42% Chardonnay, essentially the same as the Blanc, with drops of saignée Pinot blended in. Disgorged: March, 2019. (AG) Inner quote mark (7/2019)
