Clos Des Goisses is the crown jewel of all Champagne vineyards.
No other vineyard can match the perfect 30-45 degrees fully south-facing slope of pure chalk directly above the Marne river.
61% Pinot Noir and 39% Chardonnay.
Traditional, partial vinification in wooden barrels (37%) leads to more complexity without premature oxidation. There is no malolactic fermentation, which enables the wine’s natural acidity to compensate for the powerful character of the terroir.
Extended aging for about 8 years at a constant temperature of 12°C in the House’s historic cellars in Mareuil‐sur‐Ay. Dosage Extra Brut (4.25 g/litre) gives full expression to the vinosity and minerality of this exceptional vineyard.
To the eye: Bright gold, with fine, delicate froth mousse.
With the nose: Initially, the nose is very expressive and complex, with spicy, toasted notes of chili and pepper. On being aerated it reveals fruit‐laden aromas of Morello, Amarena, and black cherries.
With the mouth: Fresh and mineral‐driven. The fruity notes of Morello cherry and spices are apparent on the finish.
An intense, well‐structured wine with a wonderfully long finish.
Clos des Goisses is a very fine wine before being very fine champagne. A perfect and unforgettable match for strong-flavored dishes such as game, truffles, caviar, and soft cheeses. When young, it is an equally good match with shellfish and white meats. Young bottles will often benefit from being decanted into a carafe.
Cellar aged for nine years and put on the market only when perfectly mature, it can then be kept for several decades and will continue to develop magnificently in the right conditions.
