History

We have news of the presence of the Philipponnat family in Champagne in the Ay area since 1522! This maison, now counted among the most famous and prestigious in France, immediately had the privilege of being one of the official suppliers to the court of King Louis of France XIV, maintaining prominent positions and prestigious collaborations even in the following centuries. Located in Mareuil-sur-Ay, crossroads of the three major areas of Champagne (Montagne de Reims, Vallée de la Marne and Cote des Blancs) the maison will develop the winemaking style as we know it today with the introduction of new techniques and new discoveries as early as 1800, such as the use of reserve wine with the Solera technique; this allows to give each wine a characteristic imprint capable of being repeated from the first years of production. Today the company owns about 20 hectares of vineyards located in Mareuil and the other municipalities of Ay, all with beautiful southern exposures; their most famous vineyard, the Clos de Goisses, which means “difficult to work” has a slope that reaches up to 45° but allows the vines to have constant exposure to the sun; the champagne that is obtained from this clos, the Clos des Goisses, has become very famous in Italy as it was the favorite of Gianni Agnelli, owner of Fiat. Today it is Charles Philipponnat, the last heir of the family, who is at the helm of this extraordinary company and custodian of this enormous cultural heritage of the region and of France.

Grapes used

Pinot Noir 65%

Chardonnay 30%

Pinot Meunier 5%

Production method

It is produced according to the so-called methode champenoise or classic method, a method in which the wine substantially undergoes two different fermentations: the first, the alcoholic one (which it shares with the rest of the wines) takes place in vats for fermentation; the second instead takes place directly in the bottle and ensures that during this second procedure, thanks to particular yeasts, the wine also develops carbon dioxide (which will then give life to the famous bubbles when uncorked). It is added with at least 20-30% of vin de reserve aged in barrels with the solera method; the dosage is minimal in order to preserve the naturalness of the taste (8 g/l) and is representative of the traditional style of the maison.

Degree of alcohol

12.5%

Tasting notes

Intense straw yellow color with a golden hue. On the nose notes of thyme, wild herbs, ripe yellow fruit, with notes of honey and melted butter. In the mouth full-bodied but balanced, substantial, also supported by a certain acidity, minerality and final complexity.

Possible combinations

Ideal as an aperitif or toast to celebrate special occasions, it’s always the right time for a good champagne like Philipponat Royale Reserve. Excellent on delicate or quality raw fish dishes, succulent first courses such as carbonara, lasagna or first courses with butter.
