John Gilman - View From the Cellar 95

“... a classic vintage of this great vineyard, with a cépages of sixty-five percent pinot noir and thirty-five percent chardonnay. After eight years aging sur latte, this is still a youngster by the long-distance standards of Clos des Goisses, but the wine is showing lovely accessibility out of the blocks and this may be one vintage here that is hard to keep one’s hands off of bottles in their relative youth. The outstanding bouquet offers up a ripe and very precise bouquet of pear, hazelnut, gentle smokiness, beautiful limestone minerality, gentle leesiness and a topnote of dried flowers. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and rock solid at the core, with very refined mousse, excellent focus and balance, impressive nascent complexity and a very long, minerally and intensely flavored finish ... very, very easy to drink for such a young Clos des Goisses. Needless to say, it will be even better ten to thirty years down the road.”

Antonio Galloni - Vinous Media 96

“The 2006 Clos des Goisses is stellar, but it is also going to need quite a bit of time to come into its own. Powerful and ample in the best of the Goisses style, the 2006 hits the palate with serious intensity. Orchard fruits, lemon oil, white flowers and almonds are some of the many notes that open up in the glass, but, as is often the case with young Goisses, it is the wine’s gravitas that is front and center. Even with all of its overtness, though, the 2006 retains striking, crystalline purity. I imagine the 2006 will reward Champagne lovers with many decades of truly exceptional drinking. The only thing the 2006 needs is time. The question is: How much?”

*Many of our favorite wines are unfortunately made in very small quantities. To give as many customers as possible the chance to enjoy these wines, we have set a per-client limit on them. This limit is not per order but per client. So once this limit is reached, please understand that if a second order is placed at a later date, we won't likely be able to confirm it. You can find out more about whether a wine has a per-client limit (or simply, its physical availability) by either positioning your cursor over the quantity list on our wine list or by loading the individual item page (like the current page).
