CRAFTING

the blend

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.

vinification

Vinified using traditional methods to avoid premature oxidation. Partial malolactic fermentation and reserve wines aged in casks to allow the aromas to develop complexity. Moderate dosage (8 g/litre) to maintain a balance between freshness, fruitiness and vinosity without masking the wine’s character and purity. aging Aged on the lees in the House’s cellars at a constant temperature of 12°C for three years, far longer than the legal minimum requirement of 15 months.

TASTING

REVIEWS

Wilfred Wong of Wine.com

COMMENTARY: The Philipponnat Royale Réserve Brut Champagne is one of the wine trade best-kept secrets—for the time being. TASTING NOTES: This is one of the finest Champagnes in the marketplace. Its aromas and flavors of ripe apples and mineral are pure and bright. Pair its fresh and complex nuances with a charcuterie tray of pâtés, jumbo prawns, and mild cheeses.
