Tasting Notes

**Note: 100% pinot noir, disgorged March 2020, 4.5 g/L**
An elegant, pure and wafting nose freely offers up its softly yeasty aromas of apple, quinine and ripe citrus elements, especially Meyer lemon. There is excellent richness to the relatively full-bodied and beautifully textured flavors that are supported by a decidedly pliant mousse before concluding in a complex and sneaky long finish. This is a decidedly rich and generously proportioned vintage for Clos des Goisses and as such, it is already drinking quite well though I underscore that it should continue to age well. I would be inclined to enjoy it now but if your taste runs to that very toasty/yeasty character aged Champagne often develops, this would be a good candidate for that.
