Description

The subtle alliance between the aromatic richness and freshness of a Blanc de Noirs champagne by Philipponnat

The producer

Established for nearly five centuries in Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, the Philipponnat Champagne House is one of the historic names of the Champagne region. Singularity, excellence, generosity and simplicity are the values that guide this house, which has remained family-owned. Owned by the house since 1935, the mythical Clos des Goisses is one of the oldest and most prestigious clos in the Champagne region. This treasure is home to utterly rare and exceptionally powerful champagnes.

The vineyard

Philipponnat reigns over an exceptional vineyard of 20 hectares, composed of Champagne Premiers and Grands Crus, in Aÿ, Mareuil-sur-Aÿ and Avenay.

The wine

This Blanc de Noirs 2016 by Philipponnat is made exclusively from the first press of grapes from Verzy and the house's vineyards in Mareuil-sur-Ay.

The vintage

The beginning of the year was marked by major frosts (in January and April) and heavy rainfall until the end of June. Flowering began in mid-June and took place under good conditions. August was hot, sunny and dry, ensuring a gradual and even ripening of the grapes. The vineyard boasted an utterly healthy condition during the harvest.

Vinification and ageing

This wine is vinified in a traditional manner, in vats and in oak, in order to avoid premature oxidation. Only the juice vinified in vats undergoes partial malolactic fermentation. This Extra Brut champagne is aged for five to seven years and the dosage is 4.25 g/litre.

The blend

Pinot Noir (100%).

Blanc de Noirs 2016 by Philipponnat: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

Colour
This brilliant champagne reveals a beautiful golden colour with subtle copper highlights.

Nose
The expressive nose blends fruity fragrances (yellow fruits, peach) and lightly toasted notes.

Palate
The full palate exudes delicious fruity aromas (blackberries, peach, mango) and notes of barley sugar. The finish is persistent and seductive with its freshness, mentholated notes and delicate suppleness.

Food and wine pairing

Terrines, foie gras or even a chicken tagine with apricots and almonds will complement this sophisticated Blanc de Noirs 2016 by Philipponnat.

Service

For an optimal tasting, serve between 8 and 9°C as an aperitif and 10 to 12°C with a meal.
