About the winery
Along the banks of the River Marne and close to the Mareuil sur Aÿ Roman church, which is situated in the middle of its own vineyards, Champagne Philipponnat produces wines with an exceptional house style. The main courtyard opens onto a beautiful classic façade situated just behind a gate stamped with the family coat of arms. Here lies the heart of Philipponnat - its XVIIIth Century cellars where, shielded from the world, its wines slowly mature.
The range of Philipponnat Champagnes are designed to be appreciated by a broad spectrum of wine lovers. From its flagship Brut Royale Réserve to the connoisseur's choice, Clos des Goisses, Philipponnat Champagnes are full-bodied, structured yet still fresh and distinctive due to the dominance of the Pinot Noir grape. Between 600,000 to 700,000 bottles are produced each year.
Philipponnat has always reserved its Champagnes for true connoisseurs. The best wine merchants, Michelin-starred restaurants, sommeliers, chefs and private clubs are the natural ambassadors of the House. Thanks to their support, Philipponnat wines are enjoyed in more than 50 countries.
In the Philipponnat Treasure Vault, very old vintages age slowly. Some of them are more than 50 years old and are testament to the extraordinary longevity of the House's wines. (Source: www.philipponnat.com)
