Philipponnat is a house of outstanding quality from their entry level Royale Reserve Brut through to their iconic Clos des Goisses Vintages. Their newly released Carafe is no exception, its stunning and the perfect accompaniment to the Philipponnat range.

Bottles will often benefit from being decanted into a carafe before being served to allow the champagne to breathe. Philipponnat has crafted a stunning crystal decanter that will surely make your champagne sing!

One of the most underrated champagnes in our humble opinion. Philipponnat is a house of outstanding quality from their entry level Royale Reserve Brut all the way through to their iconic Clos des Goisses Vintages. This premium producer picks fruit with maximum ripeness and focus on pinot noir fruit with power. All this ripeness is balanced with a long, cool fermentation and some wines being blocked from malo-lactic fermentation, whilst being fermented in oak barrels. Careful blending of base wines complete the work of art on non-vintage cuvées with approximately 30% of reserve wines being added.

Reserve wines are aged in a perpetual Solera system with new wines being added to older wines every year, continuously adding more complexity and depth to young cuvées.
