Wine Spectator | Rating: 90A high-pitched aroma of sweet spices and coconut introduce a rich palate, with a fine texture and complex flavors of dried citrus, coffee and pastry. Good balance overall, just a tad sharp, but a success for the vintage. Drink now through 2008. 3,000 cases made.Author: Bruce Sanderson
Vinous | Rating: 97A last minute addition to this tasting, courtesy of a dear friend, the 1992 Clos des Goisses is a towering masterpiece. It's as simple as that. Huge and exotic on the palate, the 1992 is the first wine in this tasting that shows what mature Goisses is all about. The flavors are intense and Pinot dominated, while the sense of phenolic weight is impossible to miss. This is the essence of Clos des Goisses.Author: Antonio Galloni
Jancis Robinson | Rating: 18Deeper colour than most. Tingly exciting nose. Extremely zesty, tight and electric. Very fine with a refreshing green streak. Particularly complete and perfect to drink now.Author: Jancis Robinson
Champagne is the northernmost wine region of France, located 90 miles outside of Paris. Its storied wine reputation dates back to the Middle Ages; a few of the top houses, to which so much of the region's fame is owed, have been producing since the early 1700s. As one of the coolest wine producing regions in the world, Champagne is perfectly suited to growing , , and Pinot Meunier at the low sugar/high acid levels necessary for sparkling wines. The region's famous chalk soils not only reflect sunlight back to the vines, helping them to ripen, but also impart minerality to the fruit, giving Champagne its characteristic flavor profile.
