- The signature blend of the house, without any added sugar

- High quality producer using sustainable practices in the vineyard and winery

- 0g dosage wine

This cuvée reveals the wine’s basic sensory qualities through its total absence of sugar and offers a subtle blend of aromatic precision (citrus notes, orange zest, vine blossom), minerality and notes of warm bread and fresh apple. A dazzling and genuine expression of the Philipponnat style.

Technical details: 65% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay, 5% Pinot Meunier. First press juice of mainly Grand and Premier Crus grapes from the heart of the Champagne wine-growing area. 20% to 30% of reserve wines are aged in wooden barrels using the solera system to incorporate older wines without losing freshness. Partial malolactic fermentation and reserve wines aged in casks to allow the aromas to develop complexity. Undosed (0 g/litre) to reveal the wine's full character and purity.

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 malolactic fermentation whilst being fermented in oak barrels. Carefully blending of base wines complete the work of art on non-vintage cuvees 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 cuvees.

Raw fish, seafood, Japanese cuisine.
