Tasting Notes

Soft, delicate and polished.

The 2007 Philipponnat Clos de Goisses is expressive and aromatic.

The wine is elegant with a powerful underling character coming from the Pinot Noir.

On the nose there are citrusy notes, gunflint and rounder hints with vanilla and pear.

On the mouth a great acidity gives this bottle nerve and structure.

Beautiful wine.

Champagne is a sparkling wine from France. While the word Champagne can be used to refer to any sparkling wine, it is illegal in the EU and some countries to label any product Champagne unless it comes from the Champagne wine region of France and is made according to the appellation’s regulations. This alcoholic beverage is made from particular grape varieties grown in the Champagne region, according to rules that include, among other things, specific vineyard practices, grape sourcing exclusively from specified locations within the Champagne region, specific grape-pressing methods, and secondary fermentation of the wine in the bottle to cause carbonation.

Green-skinned grape variety used in wine production

Chardonnay is a grape variety with a green skin that is used to make white wine. The grape variety originated in eastern France’s Burgundy wine region, but it is now grown all over the world, from England to New Zealand.

Pinot noir

Red wine grape variety

Pinot noir is a type of red wine grape that belongs to the Vitis vinifera genus. It’s also probable that the name refers to wines produced mainly from Pinot noir grapes. The name comes from the words “pine” and “black” in French. The name pine refers to the grape variety’s tightly clustered, pine cone-shaped fruit bunches.
