A Vertical Tasting of Clos des Goisses


I was fortunate to be able to attend a tasting in London yesterday of Philipponnat’s Clos des Goisses, one of my favorite champagnes. Hosted by Tom Stevenson, this extraordinary tasting featured eleven vintages of Clos des Goisses, including not only renowned vintages such as 1990, 1976, 1964 and 1952, but also wines that demonstrate what the Clos can do in more difficult years, such as 2001 and 1951. As all of these bottles were provided directly from Philipponnat’s cellars, many of them recently disgorged and some of them even in magnum format, it was a rare opportunity. Charles Philipponnat, who was also in attendance, reminded me that it will soon become even rarer, due to the house’s dwindling stock of older vintages.

I took advantage of my London visit to indulge in a stop at Edward Green at 75 Jermyn Street and a leisurely afternoon stroll down nearby Savile Row. Would I rather have a new pair of Edward Green adelaides in antiqued burnt pine or a magnum of ’64 Clos des Goisses? Hmm. I think I’d have to take the Clos des Goisses.

My complete notes on this tasting can be found here.
