The Story

Belonging exclusively to Philipponnat, the Clos des Goisses is an exceptional vineyard of 5,5 Ha enclosed by walls, with an impressive gradient of 30 to 45°, facing full south, where Philipponnat produces the most powerful of Champagne wines. Always vintaged, very lightly dosed, this uncommon wine is characterized by incredible length and body, in which Pinot Noir characteristics predominate. This fabulous wine for great occasions, extraordinarily mineral and intense is also a marvelous companion for gastronomy matching game, mushrooms and even cheeses.

Vinification: Wine-making for Clos des Goisses is totally traditional. Its only originality resides in the absence of malo-lactic fermentation, which is systematically avoided. Thus, the wine maintains a vivacity and freshness that balances its alcoholic strength, its intensity, its roundness without masking any of its body and aromas and, on the contrary, contributes to its persistence. Wood, in this elaboration philosophy, is only partially used (30%); rather as a minor element in blending only there to increase complexity.

Aging: Very mature and intense, Clos des Goisses is an open, aromatic wine, although closed when young. Ageing in our own cellars is not so much destined to round it out, but rather to add still greater dimension and complexity. Ideal ageing is from 8 to 10 years, the prime of life for Clos des Goisses. At this age, the wine attains its greatest complexity without having lost its freshness. It is at this point that degorgement is carried out and the wine readied for sale. The structure of the wine is such that it will age gracefully for decades if kept in an adequate environment (cool and dark). One should not be afraid to decant Clos des Goisses before service to let the wine reveal its full potential.

Vintage 1964

1964 Philipponnat Clos des Goisses (Champagne)

The Clos des Goisset is a unique champagne. It is produced from the grapes of one single vineyard and only in the best years. It is also given all the time it needs to mature in the spacious cellars of the estate, which were built by the Romans. Before it is released to the market Clos des Goisset is first matured for at least ten years. The quantity produced is small for a champagne, on high-yielding years only 2000-3000 cases, and in some years the whole output remains in some hundreds of cases.
In 1964 the production was only 3000 cases.
The 1964 Clos des Goisset has always been one of my favorite champagnes.
An excellent looking bottle. The cork opened easily with a lively sound. Bright gold colour. Lots of complexity and class on the nose. Tiny, lively bubbles. Extremely rich, round and complete champagne. Mellow, smooth and very elegant. I still yearn for that long, fat and complex aftertaste, which lasts forever. A very special champagne!

Written Notes

Actually somewhat closed in its bouquet, especially in comparison with the aromatic 66. That is the drawback with recently disgorged old wines. On the other hand, the wine benefits from the disgorgement date in its youthfully fresh and generously creamy taste. Highly concentrated and pleasant aftertaste.

Good looking normal size bottle. Colour is light. On the nose it is intense and complex. The taste is vivid, and dry, and high in acidity, medium-bodied, with well-structured structure and developing. On the palate it is layered and has citrus, apricot, bread and dried-fruit flavours. The finish is long, pure and lingering.
