Réserve Millésimée from Philipponnat is the ultimate expression of the grand Pinot Noir terroirs found in Ay and Mareuil-sur-Ay. Made only in exceptional years, it is the fruit of a strict selection from among the vintage's finest wines. Its extraordinary quality originates in this ambitious blending, expressing the vintage’s specific character. Long ageing allows it to fully develop the complexity of truly Grand Champagne. Vinous and powerful, the Vintage Reserve remains elegant and fresh. Perfect all alone, it will nevertheless brilliantly accompany an entire meal.
Appearance: Medium gold, without any evidence of evolution. The mousse is delicate without being too lively and becomes creamy.
Nose: First nose of flower honey, then come notes of dry fruit, grape and fig.
Palate: Very direct attack, pure. A crisp acidity balances the ripeness of the fruit. The mouth is full but without heaviness. The finish is enlivened by light but persistent aromas of leather and smoke, typical marks of ageing in grand Pinot Noirs.

Grape varieties 30% Chardonnay, 70% Pinot Nero
Origin Vineyards from the South of the Montagne de Reims.
Production technique Traditional, a portion of the blend is not subjected to malolactic fermentation in order to preserve more freshness and to increase the potential for keeping the wine. It is dosed at 5 g/l, which is very low for a Brut, in order to allow the natural and noble character of the cuvée to express itself.
Ageing 6 to 7 years in order to maximize complexity as well as secondary and tertiary aromas that result from ageing on the lees in the bottle. All wines are given three months between disgorgement and shipping. Each bottle bears its disgorgement date on its back label.
Alcohol content 12.00% by volume
Sulphites Contains sulphites
Pairing As a very fine table Champagne, the Réserve Millésimée is a perfect food companion. Completely at ease with seafood, especially with butter sauces, it goes even better with poultry, broiled meat and feathered game.

Philipponnat

From this winery:
It was in 1935 that Pierre Philipponnat acquired their crown jewel: the Clos des Goisses vineyard. It’s 5.5 hectares of steeply sloping, south-facing vineyard (now 3.5 ha Pinot Noir, 2 ha Chardonnay, but back in 1964 it was exclusively Chardonnay), a...
