Critic's Notes

Antonio Galloni - Vinous Media, 98

“... just as impressive today as it has always been. Rich, dense and explosive, the 2008 exists in three dimensions, with remarkable textural depth and vertical intensity to burn. Clos des Goisses is notoriously slow to develop. Readers who can be patient will be treated to a spectacular Champagne....”

Decanter, 96

“... already a pleasure to drink - but it will continue to live a long and distinguished life. Terrific expression of a complex range of citrus scents, confit of lemon and a touch of bergamot. The palate is stunning, with a promise of burgeoning flavours into the 2030s. The fruit is ideally, subtly ripe in classic cooler conditions, but also mineral-stamped in the Clos' tradition. The 2008 has everything - a true great.”

John Gilman - View From the Cellar, 95+

“... today is showing beautifully, albeit in its youthful guise, wafting from the glass in a blend of apple, pear, a touch of almond, beautiful minerality, a touch of citrus peel and hints of the musky floral tones to come with further bottle age. On the palate the wine is crisp, pure and full, with a fairly closed down and youthful personality today, a great core of fruit, precise, seamless balance, very elegant mousse, great length and grip and simply stunning potential for a decade down the road. This will be a legendary vintage of Clos des Goisses....”

Stephan Reinhardt - The Wine Advocate, 96+

“... an exciting bouquet of bright fruits, crushed chalk, bread and iodine notes. On the palate, this is an excitingly vibrant, fresh and chalky Clos with lovely citrus and cumquat flavors on the finish. The 2008 is very complex, bright, super clear and fresh, with a tightly woven structure but still great finesse and elegance. This is a fabulous Clos for the next three decades....”
