Philipponnat Royale Réserve Brut NV
Established in the heart of the Champagne wine-growing area, Philipponnat possesses a unique heritage. Its magnificent, historic 18th century cellars were part of the Château de Mareuil.
Philipponnat has owned an exceptional walled vineyard, unparalleled in the Champagne wine-growing area, for nearly a century: Clos des Goisses. The name of this 5.5 hectare plot with a 45° incline reflects its nature: in the old Champagne dialect, Gois or Goisse means a very steep slope. It is also the region’s warmest terroir: facing due south, this pure chalk slope receives no shade from sunrise to sunset.
Colour: Deep gold in colour with amber glints.
Nose: The first nose reveals vine blossom, linden 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. Light notes of biscuit and freshly baked bread on the finish.
