Description & Technical Information
The jewel in the Champagne Philipponnat crown is a tiny 5.5-hecatre single walled vineyard called Clos des Goisses. Acquired in 1935, Pierre Philipponnat was quick to realise the potential of this unique plot and immediately started producing a single vineyard blend. Originally named Vin des Goisses, it was changed to Clos de Goisses in 1959 and thus the category of Clos champagnes (produced from grapes within walled vineyards) was born. Clos des Goisses is truly iconic: situated by the Marne canal, it is a steep-sloping, south-facing vineyard with an inclination of 35-45 degrees that can only be fully appreciated by visiting. Due to its size, production is limited to a maximum of 55,000 bottles each year. In 2002, just 20,000 bottles were produced.

Weather: The 2002 vintage shaped up magnificently over the spring, with no significant frost and near-perfect flowering. Then followed a summer marked by long, sunny periods interspersed with regular cloudy and rainy spells. The vines were in good health and the dehydration of the grape berries helped them reach new heights of ripeness. Generally considered one of the best harvests in the last twenty years.

News Article: Philipponnat Clos des Goisses 2002 placed sixth in our comprehensive Prestige Cuvées from 2002 blind tasting in October 2016 with Jancis Robinson MW. Read the full write-up here.

Tasting Note: The 2002 season was a near-perfect vintage, especially for this tiny plot in Mareuil-sur-Aÿ. Clos des Goisses 2002 is a deep golden colour. On the nose aromas of Pinot Noir are prominent with hints of fruits and honey. The palate is full of flavour with the fruit complexity shining through. With such a remarkably long-lasting finish, this champagne will age exceptionally well.
