Le Clos des Goisses
is an enclosed plot of 5.5 hectares and it is one of the oldest of the Champagne Region
. It is facing South, and is located on the best hillside of Mareuil-sur-Ay
. This enclosed plot constitutes an exceptional and recognizable terroir thanks to its extreme 45° inclination. The cuvée Clos des Goisses 2005
is faithful to its origin : a unique and recognizable champagne
, composed of 65% Pinot Noir
and 35% Chardonnay
. it was partially vinified in barrels, then aged for 8 to 10 years in the cellar. It expresses a great aromatic complexity and a beautiful vinosity. This 2005 vintage of Clos des Goisses is particularly strong and intense, influenced by its contrats. Its bright golden robe is crowned by a fine, delicate and aery mousse. On the nose, this champagne is elegant, floral and marked by herbal and linden-tree notes. After a slight airing, more toasted aromas appear as well as cocoa, Virginia tabacco and vanilla aromas. On the palate, the minerality is fully revealed on a beautiful aromatic persistence with toasted and smoked notes. This cuvée is to be kept and will nobly evolve for several decades.
