Reviews 97 points Wine Advocate "Unwinding in the glass with aromas of warm bread, fresh peach, mango and yeast extract, it's full-bodied, thickly textural and vinous, with lively acids—Philipponnat opting to block malolactic fermentation—and a deep, multidimensional core, concluding with a long and powerful finish. (WK)" 91 points Burghound "Fresh aromas of quinine, yeast, citrus rind and a whiff of rose petal give way to nicely rich, even a bit creamy, if reasonably crisp flavors that are supported by a relatively firm mousse before concluding in a delicious, round and lingering finish that isn't as dry as the Extra Brut designation would suggest.

Also From Philipponnat
Philipponnat is a Champagne house with a rich history dating back to 1522. However, it is not the longevity of the estate that has earned them fame, but rather their exceptional Clos des Goisses vineyard. Critically acclaimed as "arguably the greatest vineyard site in all of Champagne" by Peter Liam of Wine & Spirits Magazine, this vineyard is the source of the estate's finest offering.
The Clos des Goisses Champagne is a single vineyard wine, crafted using grapes grown in an unrivaled, fully south-facing hillside vineyard comprised of pure chalk soils with a small plateau above the Marne River. This unique terroir, coupled with Philipponnat's unconventional winemaking methods, results in an intense, fresh, and complex wine of great depth.
As a premier producer of outstanding Champagnes, Philipponnat's portfolio is truly remarkable. Among its offerings, the Clos des Goisses stands out as a crown jewel, consistently delivering a harmonious balance of ripeness and acidity, regardless of the climate. This wine is a true trailblazer, as Philipponnat was the first to craft a single vineyard Champagne, breaking with traditional blending methods since 1930. It is without question, a wine that any Champagne enthusiast should not miss, and we highly recommend it.
