2009 Philipponnat "Clos de Goisses" Brut Champagne 6-Pack (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1419710 96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2009 Clos des Goisses has been very tight in two recent tastings, which is probably a very good thing for its long-term prospects, but less so for readers seeking the immediacy that is common in so many 2009 Champagnes. White flowers, orchard fruit, mint white pepper and citrus peel add to the wine’s bright profile. Readers should plan on being extremely patient, as the 2009 Goisses does not show much, if any, early appeal, even if the density and textural persistence of the great years are both there. The 2009 is 61% Pinot Noir and 39% Chardonnay. Dosage is 4.5 grams per liter. (AG) Inner quote mark (7/2019)

94 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The very, very fine 2009 Clos des Goisses is more typical of what one expects from this wine in its youth, as the nose is far more reserved out of the blocks than the 2010 version. This wine was disgorged in March of 2018 and the cépages of sixty-one percent pinot noir and thirtynine percent chardonnay (a two-thirds pinot to one-third chardonnay blend is the goal here most years). The 2009 is nicely primary on the nose, offering up scents of pear, lovely red fruit tones, macadamia nut, a lovely base of soil, gentle smokiness and incipient notes of white flowers in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and nascently complex, with a rock solid core, lovely focus and grip, refined bubbles and outstanding length on the balanced and very promising finish. The palate seems a touch more open than the nose suggests and this wine will probably come forward fairly early for a Clos des Goisses, but will age long and beautifully on its exquisite balance. There is nothing blowsy about this racy 2009! 2025-2075. Inner quote mark (7/2019)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Super complex and rich, this smells regal with toasted brioche and praline, as well as preserved-lemon, fresh-fig and biscuity notes. The palate is full and round with a chalky core that delivers a long, dry and powerful finish. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (9/2018)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2009 Clos des Goisses Extra-Brut is composed of two-thirds Pinot Noir and one-third Chardonnay. This is a big and powerful vintage with a savory character and dark red fruit (black cherries, raspberries), floral (elderflowers), yeasty, white chocolate and delicate citrus notes on the deep, spicy, very pure and mineral nose. On the palate, this is a complex, highly elegant, finessed and balanced Clos that Charles compares with 1998 in terms of flavors, depth and structure. The 2009 is super delicate right now and is already drinking beautifully, but the it will even improve and receive new dimensions with bottle age. Disgorged in March 2018. Tasted April 2018.

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark The flavors of cassis, candied lemon zest, anise and toast point show lovely juiciness in this vibrant Champagne, with pleasing delicacy to the finely knit mousse, crisp acidity and chalk-tinged finish. Elegant. (AN) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark A rich gold with a magisterial bead. Aromas of bergamot, verbena and hints of beeswax, the oak is still persuasive in this relatively youthful state. The ripeness of the year is captured on the palate with more exotic descriptors recalling papaya, mango and peach. The finish is powerful and spicy yet also taut and precise; a carafe would not be out of place for such a serious wine. (SF) Inner quote mark (9/2018)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Really vibrant and aromatic nose. Quite evolved - rich without being sweet. Vibrant and refreshing but very much a food wine with notes of mushrooms. I could imagine enjoying this with guinea fowl in a creamy morel sauce. Perfection! Savoury and rich at the same time. Very dense. None of the looseness of some 2009s. Tight persistent bead. 18/20 points. (JR) Inner quote mark (9/2018)
