07` Philipponnat Clos des Goisses

Post by Blake Brown » Thu Jul 12, 2018 12:25 pm

2007 PHILIPPONNAT CLOS des GOISSES BRUT- 65% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay; as indicated on the back label, it was bottled in June 2008 and disgorged in September 2016 at 4.5% g/pl; I just had to open another young champagne to get a read on it and am I glad to have done so here; it is absolutely fabulous; fresh citrus dominates the aromatics and continues on in the taste profile along with spice, ginger, saline and more specifically, lemon zest; it had a medium full body, a creamy mousse and all of the treasures staying the course through the finish; I liked that it was not sweet; it`s nicely acidic which should allow for ageing and a lovely mature expression; I liked that it was not sweet.

Now the challenge is for me to keep my hands off the other bottles for a few years. Wish me luck!

Cheers,
Blake
