2007 Clos Goisses from Philipponnat

Elevating champagne to a rightfully exalted pedestal, the illustrious house of Philipponnat shines with the 2007 vintage of Clos Goisses, a showpiece both reminiscent of its lineage and marked by its exceptional individuality.

 

A vintage apart with rare charisma

The 2007 growing season in Champagne was unique, not least unpredictable, commencing with an erstwhile spring only to be marred by rather cool summer temperatures. However, a sun-kissed September ushered in high-quality grapes ripe for the picking, setting the stage for a truly memorable vintage.

Expertly harnessing these climatic vicissitudes, the 2007 Clos Goisses from Philipponnat encapsulates the unyielding resolve of nature and patient craftsmanship.

 

Divine expression of terroir and time

The wine's silvery straw colour, firstly captures the gaze, leading to an effervescence of persistently exhilarating bubbles, denoting its quietly confident maturity. On the nose, it expresses an enchanting array of citrus blossom, minerality and nuanced brioche tones. This leads onto palate sensations that triumphantly echo its olfactory promise - notes of green apple, quince and toasted almonds intricately layering over a sublime limestone minerality.

Incredibly nuanced and with striking poise, this blend vibrates with latent energy confirming its potential to age notably well. A testament to the singular terroir of its steep south-facing vineyard slopes.

An investment prospect sparkling with certainty

For discerning investors seeking vintage champagne replete with character and promise for future progression, 2007 Clos Goisses by Philipponnat provides an opportunity primed for thoughtful consideration. A standout vintage from an acclaimed producer, resonating a complexity and finesse seldom encountered.

Just as persistent bubbles rise up through champagne, investing in this eminent vintage promises an upward trajectory rich in both rewarding returns and taste resonance - a union both lucrative and imminently satisfying.

The 2007 Clos des Goisses Brut blends 65% Pinot Noir with 35% Chardonnay and opens with a bright, highly refined and complex bouquet of red fruits, fresh ginger and roasted hazelnuts. On the palate, this is a pure, highly refined and very mineral Clos des Goisses that reveals a long, complex, beautifully tensioned and iodine-laced finish. Just Beautiful! This bottle was disgorged in September 2016. Tasted April 2018.
