Champagne Philipponnat Overview
+
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. Gois, means a very steep slope. Due to its size, production is limited to a maximum of 55,000 bottles each year. 2009 yielded 19805 bottles in total.

Weather: The 2009 harvest began with a particularly cold winter but mild spring temperatures helped avoid any frost damage. Some stormy spells boosted the vegetation in late spring and June and July were altogether variable with hot spells and rainy patches. The glorious August weather was perfect for the grapes growth, hot and dry days followed by cool nights led to rapid maturation. Harvest began on September 8th and ended on the 21st.

Technical Information:

Tasting Note: Elegant and light gold colour with a fine stream of bubbles. The palate has an abundance of fruits and citrus, with delicate hints of brioche and vanilla. A creamy mousse on the midpalate combines with honey and gentle spices. A stunning example from 2008, from a magnificent single vineyard.

“69% Pinot Noir, 31% Chardonnay. Eight years' ageing on lees. Dosage 4.5 g/l. Disgorged March 2018.
Tasted blind. This wine seemed to be the odd one out. Very pale pink note. Vivacious bead. Not much nose but obviously tightly knit and then with lots of acidity and beeriness. Some oakiness evident. Not the most impressive. Slightly sweaty nose. Softer than most.
Drink 2019-2027”

“61% Pinot Noir, 39% Chardonnay. A bit less barrel fermentation than usual (just 37%), presumably because of the richness of the vintage. Aged for eight years on the lees. Disgorged March 2018. Dosage 4.25 g/l.
Tasted blind. Deeper straw so 2009? Hint of dill pickle and some sweetness. Not really together, slightly sickly on the end. Unintegrated.
Drink 2018-2026”
