Produced from a blend of 65% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay, and 5% Pinot Meunier. First press juice of mainly Grand and Premier Crus grapes from the heart of the Champagne wine-growing area. 20 to 30% of reserve wines are aged in wooden barrels using the solera system to blend with base vintage and incorporate older wines without losing freshness. Vinified using traditional methods to avoid premature oxidation. Partial malolactic fermentation and reserve wines aged in casks to allow the aromas to develop complexity. Aged on the lees in the House’s cellars at a constant temperature of 12°C for three years, far longer than the legal minimum requirement of 15 months. Residual sugar: 8g/l. Bottled at 12.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: The first nose reveals vine blossom and fresh, lightly toasted bread. After breathing, aromas of summer berries, citrus fruit and honey develop.

Palate: Fine vinous attack on the palate, fruity (redcurrant, raspberry, ripe grape) and full-bodied, generous and long.

Finish: Light notes of biscuit and freshly baked bread on the finish.

Based in Mareuil sur Ay, in Montagne de Reims, Philipponnat holds a long history tracing back to 1522, and at some stage supplied the King of France Louis XIV. Their approach is based on their exceptional Terroir, enabling them great maturity to deliver flavourful, powerful and well-balanced champagne.
