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.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% 1er Cru | Clos des Goisses
Grape Varieties: 70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay
Ageing: 8 years on the lees
Disgorged: June 2011
Dosage: 4.5 g/l
Drink: Now to 2029

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.

Jancis Robinson MW
“Disgorged June 2011. RS 4.5 g/l. 70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay. From producer's UK stock.
Dark pinky gold. Very rich and interesting. Bit of a wild card. Philipponat? Really interesting wine (rather than champagne). Tastes of toffee apple. Really interesting with a hint of wild flowers. Long.”
94/100
Essi Avellan MW
“This big vintage is finally starting to come around. Still a baby, holding back plenty but it is starting to show its true colours of ripe opulence, vinosity, muscle and power. Its sweet aromatics are leaning towards ripe botrytised honey and apricot tones complemented by curry depth, ashes, red fruit, raspberry seeds, cedar wood and more. Big, bold body and lovely tingling sensation on the fresh, vivacious palate. November 2011 and February 2012 disgorgements were showing equally well in October 2014. November 2011 disgorgement retasted in May 2016. Similar notes, very slow in evolution. A long-long time keeper.”
18.5/20
Gault & Millau
“On one of the finest champagne vintages of Clos Goisses this without the slightest doubt is a wonder! The nose has admirable complexity. A mouth full has incredible balance. Bubbles are joyful and endearing. The wine fills the palate with happiness.”
18/20
Jancis Robinson MW
“Pale copper. Rich, intense, very Pinot perfume. Tight bead with – surely? – some oak influence. A very meaty, substantial wine – and almost more of a wine than a champagne. Lightly frothy. Complex and attention-grabbing though more for food than an aperitif wine. A bit like a jewel. Long. Admirably distinctive, though it needs careful treatment.”
96/100
Antonio Galloni
“The flagship 2002 Brut Clos des Goisses is simply stunning in this vintage. Seamless, ripe and beguiling, the 2002 is pure harmony in the glass. Dried pears, apricots, flowers, red berries and spices are some of the many notes that inform this towering, aristocratic wine. At once vertical yet endowed with serious length, the 2002 stands out for its breathtaking balance and overall sense of harmony. Layers of fruit built to the huge, creamy finish. This is a great showing from Philipponnat. The 2002 was disgorged in June 2011.”

    Since the early 21st century, a quiet revolution has been occurring in Champagne, and the ever-burgeoning demand for artisanal, hand-crafted cuvées continues to flourish. What are the origins of single vineyard champagnes, why are they so popular, and are they a fad or the future?
