CHAMPAGNE PHILIPPONNAT
Company Profile


EXPERTISE :

Philipponnat’s 20 hectares of vines, situated in the heart of the Champagnevine-growing area in Ay, Mareuil-sur-Ay and Avenay, are classified Premier and Grand Cru. Philipponnat works to preserve these precious and fragile centuries-old terroirs by using natural methods to work the soil, hoeing by hand and ploughing with horses. The House has found the best possible way to renew its traditions while perpetuating the best they have to offer. Emphasis is put on conservation and meeting challenges to unceasingly improve the quality of the wines.

WINES :

Philipponnat crafts its wines using exclusively first press juice from the finest grapes, mainly from Premier and Grand Cru plots, and is committed to harvesting grapes when they reach greater maturity than the average in the Champagne vine-growing region. A portion of the wines is fermented or matured in casks, which is exceptional for Champagne. Ageing in wood gives them greater complexity without coarsening them in any way. Wines are aged in bottle on lees for three to eleven years. With a distinctive style that does not yield to trends, the House produces a range of champagnes which are, first and foremost, wines: flavourful, powerful and well-balanced. Their aromatic intensity (a particular characteristic of Pinot Noir) provides a common thread and freshness and minerality give them their structure. This perfect balance between intensity and freshness is maintained thanks to a low dosage.
