The 'Les Cintres' plot lies at the heart of Clos des Goisses. It offers the most intense expression of this exceptional terroir; its vines, facing due south, benefit from an ideal amount of sunshine all year long.
To the eye, Les Cintres is a light, bright gold colour. Very fine, creamy bubbles and a dense and persistent mousse. It has a powerful and elegant nose combining notes of white chocolate with grilled nut and smoky aromatics. There is fine approach on the palate which is mineral-rich and fresh. The smoky notes are once again apparent, with an exceptionally long finish.
Aged for more than nine years in the Philipponnat's cellars at a constant temperature of 12 degrees celsius to develop maximum complexity and to highlight the wine's secondary and tertiary aromas, which are the hallmarks of extended ageing on lees.
100% pinot noir, 100% first pressed juice form the central plots in Clos des Goisses, Mareuil-sur-Ay.
