On the palate, it's full-bodied, deep and layered, with a textural attack that segues into a muscular, tight-knit core that's multidimensional and intensely mineral, concluding with a long finish. Only 20,000 bottles were produced—in other words, half the legal yield. This is a serious, structured Clos des Goisses that transcends the vintage's tendency to facility, and it will merit and reward extended bottle age.- WK collapse

White flowers, orchard fruit, mint white pepper and citrus peel add to the wine’s bright profile. Readers should plan on being extremely patient, as the 2009 Goisses does not show much, if any, early appeal, even if the density and textural persistence of the great years are both there. The 2009 is 61% Pinot Noir and 39% Chardonnay. Dosage is 4.5 grams per liter. Disgorged: March, 2018. -- Antonio Galloni collapse

Aromas of bergamot, verbena and hints of beeswax, the oak is still persuasive in this relatively youthful state. The ripeness of the year is captured on the palate with more exotic descriptors recalling papaya, mango and peach. The finish is powerful and spicy yet also taut and precise; a carafe would not be out of place for such a serious wine.
