Using grapes from one of the oldest walled vineyards of the area, Philipponnat has created an exceptionally powerful wine. Situated on a remarkably steep slope (45 °), the estate is immediately recognisable due to its unusual terrain. Comprising a selection of fruit from both premiere and Grand Cru plots, the walled 5.5 hectares of Clos de Goisses stands on one of the finest slopes in Mareuil-sur-Ay. Mostly vinified in wooden casks with no malolactic fermentation, this champagne is full-bodied, with seemingly infinite length. The perfect partner to strong flavours such as game and truffle.
