Assemblage: 65% Pinot Noir and 35% Chardonnay.
Vinification: A walled, 5.5 hectare vineyard, one of the region's few clos and the oldest and steepest in Champagne. This exceptional terroir with chalky soil is ideally situated facing due South, on Mareuil-sur-Ay's best hillside. Partial vinification in wooden barrels (50%) leads to more complexity without premature oxidation. There is no malolactic fermentation, which enables the wine's natural acidity to compensate the powerful character of the terroir.
Aging: Aged for about 10 years at a constant temperature of 12°C in the House's historic cellars in Mareuil-sur-Ay. The very low dosage (4.25 g/litre) gives full expression to the vinosity and minerality of this exceptional vineyard.
To the eye: Golden in colour with fine and delicate froth. W
With the nose: Very fine aromatic complexity with a first nose of crystallised angelica, developing into light notes of pastries, cream and vanilla.
With the mouth: The structure is creamy and fluid, extremely delicate with persistent minerality.
Pairing: Clos des Goisses is a very fine wine before being a very fine champagne. A perfect and unforgettable match for strong-flavoured dishes such as game, truffles, caviar and soft cheeses. It should be decanted into a carafe before being served to allow it to breath.
Storing: Cellar aged for eight years and put on the market only when perfectly mature, it can then be kept for several decades and will continue to develop magnificently in the right conditions.
