There is excellent volume and superb intensity to the firm mousse that despite the firmness exhibits a very fine bead. This is exceptionally impressive in the mouth with the same striking complexity of the nose coupled with positively gorgeous length. A knockout that could be drunk now with pleasure or held for a few more years first; personally I would opt for the latter but either way, this is a classic Clos des Goisses. collapse

This is another outstanding vintage of Clos des Goisses (though you will hear that a lot in the notes that follow!), as it offers up a blossoming bouquet of peach, apple, walnuts, lovely minerality, plenty of signature smokiness and a lovely element of wheat toast. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and quite ripe in personality, with a lovely core of fruit, great focus and grip, elegant mousse, excellent acids and superb balance on the very, very long and now quite wide open finish. This was a ripe year, which has lent itself to the 2000 Clos des Goisses reaching its apogee a bit earlier, but all of the constituent components are in place here for the wine to cruise along at this superb level for decades and decades to come. Not surprisingly, this is another great wine. collapse

Heady aromas of poached pear, floral honey, quince paste and musky flowers, with a smoky mineral overtone. Rich but energetic and focused, offering mineral-laced orchard and pit fruit flavors and suggestions of tarragon, vanilla and brioche. Plays power off finesse, finishing with excellent clarity and stony persistence. The 2003 version of this Champagne is showing a flamboyant streak right now, with abundant flavors of orchard and pit fruits and a sexy vanilla nuance. I'd enjoy this lush, expansive wine over the next few years but have no doubt that it will continue to age positively. The 2001 Clos des Goisses, which I sampled three times this year, is showing an exotic, nutty character and seems fully mature, to my taste. I suspect that the nuttiness will become more prominent over the coming years and that's a quality that gives me pause when considering this Champagne's aging curve. Fans of that style will demur, of course, and might enjoy this bottling even more in another five years or so. - Josh Raynolds collapse

Then it fans out more broadly on the finish without losing that bright citrus core. With time the aroma becomes more woody/cedary and that ginger note deepens. Intense and mouthwatering aftertaste. 18/20 (JH) collapse

The palate has a slight caramel note on the entry, mixed with flaked almond and dried pineapple.
