Philipponnat fashion
The Philipponnat style depends on striking a balance between freshness and intensity. The intensity is caused by: 1) the predominance of Pinot Noir in the blends, especially from our vineyards in the Montagne de Reims’ southernmost region, which have excellent southern exposure. 2) due to somewhat delayed grape picking, the hunt for the grapes’ ideal physiological ripeness. The use of just the first pressing (the Cuvée), a very mild dosage that preserves the aromatic freshness and the inherent minerality of the wines, and never less than 30% Chardonnay are both responsible for the freshness. To develop their complexity, vintage wines like Clos des Goisses mature in oak barrels for a significant percentage of the time. In order to enhance and alter the sense of acidity and freshness, malo-lactic fermentation is not applied to all wines aged in oak and some aged in steel tanks.

dedication to excellence producing wine
Champagne Philipponnat creates wines with an unusual house style near the Mareuil sur A Roman church, which is set in the center of its own vines, and along the banks of the River Marne. Behind a gate with the family crest, the main courtyard leads into a stunning classical façade. The Philipponnat winery’s XVIIIth-century vaults, where its wines gently age away from prying eyes, are located here.

Developing the Philipponnat look
The selection of Philipponnat Champagnes is intended to appeal to a wide variety of wine enthusiasts. Due to the predominance of the Pinot Noir vine, Philipponnat Champagnes, from its flagship Brut Royale Réserve to the connoisseur’s pick, Clos des Goisses, are full-bodied, structured, yet still fresh and unique. Each year, 600,000 to 700,000 bottles are made.

Philipponnat has always saved its Champagnes for the real experts when choosing its ambassadors. The House’s natural ambassadors are the top wine merchants, Michelin-starred restaurants, sommeliers, chefs, and exclusive clubs.

A hidden treasure in the cellar
Very ancient vintages mature gradually in the Philipponnat Treasure Vault. They demonstrate the amazing life of the House’s wines and some of them are older than 50 years.

a persistent custom dating back to 1522 Deep origins in the XVIIth and XVIInd centuries: April le Philipponnat has possessed a property in A since 1522, and two House Cuvées bearing his name do so today. The Philipponnat family had been rooted in the heart of Champagne for over two centuries by the time the red and gold checkerboard family coat of arms was filed with the French Heraldry in 1698. Second Empire: The Philipponnats, who are both wine marketers and vineyard owners, focus exclusively on the creation of Champagne. 1910: Despite the beginning of the First World War and a worldwide phylloxera problem, Auguste and Pierre Philipponnat establish their home in Mareuil sur A and begin utilising the historic wine cellars (XVIIIth Century) of the castle. This gives their house its current economic drive.

Great insight 1935: On the southern slope of the Gruguet hill, Pierre Philipponnat buys the Clos des Goisses, a rare vineyard. He produces a fantastic single-vineyard wine instead of mixing in Champagne, breaking with convention. The renown of the House is further enhanced by succeeding generations, first in France and subsequently internationally.

fresh momentum Joining the Boizel Chanoine Champagne Group in 1997 is Philipponnat. Auguste’s grandson Charles Philipponnat is hired to lead the House and injects the vitality needed for its global expansion. Since then, Philipponnat has grown and won more praise from the wine community and the haute cuisine community. 2003: The new winemaking facilities and barrel room at Mareuil sur Ay are finished, marking the pinnacle of Philipponnat’s high-quality wine production.

An incredible legacy in the center of champagne The king of pinot noir
In the center of the Premiers and Grands Crus appellations from the south of the Montagne de Reims: Mareuil sur A, A, Avenay, and Mutigny, the Philipponnat vineyards are mostly planted with Pinot Noir. Remissonne, 28 verges, La Dure, l’Ecluse, la Croix des Goisses, Buisson Saint-Loup, les Valofroy, are only a few of the names of the vineyards.

An exceptional vineyard The five and a half acre Clos des Goisses property combines a variety of remarkable traits to create an extraordinary wine that the House is justifiably proud of. Due to the slope’s steepness, a hillside with a south-facing slope overlooking the Marne is separated into property portions that are surrounded by walls and are only accessible by short stone stairs. On this exclusive site, every work is done by hand. The grapes there mature more quickly due to the abundant sunshine, which is evidence of a powerful, complex, and very mineral wine that may age for more than 30 years. Relationships that have lasted for generations Philipponnat has worked with producers in the Montagne de Reims, the Côte des Blancs, the Marne River Valley, and the Riceys to pick the grapes required to create the ideal Philipponnat blends.
