Winemaker Notes

Always vintaged, very lightly dosed, this uncommon wine is characterized by incredible length and body, in which Pinot Noir characteristics predominate.

This fabulous wine for great occasions, extraordinarily mineral and intense is also a marvelous companion for gastronomy matching game, mushrooms and even cheeses.

RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The flagship 2002 Brut Clos des Goisses is simply stunning in this vintage. Seamless, ripe and beguiling, the 2002 is pure harmony in the glass. Dried pears, apricots, flowers, red berries and spices are some of the many notes that inform this towering, aristocratic wine. At once vertical yet endowed with serious length, the 2002 stands out for its breathtaking balance and overall sense of harmony. Layers of fruit built to the huge, creamy finish. This is a great showing from Philipponnat.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Tightly knit and firm, this is lightly chalky in texture, but shows a sense of finesse overall, offering notes of ripe poached apple and pear, black currant, blanched almond, licorice and ground anise.

Philipponnat
The House of Philipponnat is located at the very heart of the Champagne region, in the village of Mareuil-sur-Ay, five kilometers east of Eparney. Just about 100 meters from the Romanesque church of Saint-Hilaire, and not far from the river Marne, you'll come upon the classical façade of the House of Philipponnat, its grand courtyard and monumental portal bearing the House's coat of arms.

Not far from there, near the vineyard, in the historical cellars dating back to the 18th century, Philipponnat Champagnes are ageing slowly in total silence and perfect darkness.

The House of Philipponnat is heir to traditions maintained by generations of cellar masters. Today, Philipponnat produces approximately 500,000 bottles comprising a complete range recognized by the greatest connoisseurs. From the Brut Royale Reserve, the true ambassador of the House, to the vintage Cuvee du Clos des Goisses, these are rich and structured wines, with blends dominated by the Pinot Noir offered to lovers of fine wines. Also, the House of Philipponnat has an exceptional collection of Old Vintage Champagnes quietly ageing on lees in cellars whose exact location is a closely guarded secret.

Pouilly-Fuisse

View all wine

The source of some of the richest and most sought-after Chardonnays of the Mâconnais, Pouilly-Fuissé represents a land of opportunity both for local growers and producers farther north in the Côte d’Or. Its soils are quite the same as farther north (limestone) but its weather is a bit warmer and land prices lower.

The appellation is restricted to the Chardonnay grape and includes the communes of Fuissé, Solutré (which includes Pouilly), Vergisson and Chaintré (see also mâcon villages). The richest Chardonnay comes from Fuissé and Solutré-Pouilly, whereas the Chardonnay at higher elevation from Vergisson expresses more minerality and finesse.

Tradition has the wines age one year in barrel before release and while maybe not offering the elegance of Beaune Chardonnay as a whole, they still age well and offer some of the very best values of the region. Pairing Pouilly-Fuissé with lobster or King Crab will bring great joy not only to your palate—but also your pocketbook!

Chardonnay

View all wine

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it’s grown and how it’s made. In Burgundy, Chardonnay produces some of the finest white wines in the world, typically tending towards minimal intervention in the winery and at its best resulting in remarkable longevity. This grape is popular throughout the world, but perhaps its second most important home is in California, where both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines enjoy great popularity. Oregon, Australia, South America, South Africa, and New Zealand are also significant producers of Chardonnay.

In the Glass

When planted on cool sites, Chardonnay’s flavors tend towards grapefruit, green apple, minerals, and white stone fruit, while warmer locations coax out richer, more tropical flavors of fig, melon, and pineapple. Oak can add notes of vanilla, coconut, and spice (as well as texture), while malolactic fermentation can impart soft, buttery acidity.

Perfect Pairings

Chardonnay is as versatile at the table as it is in the vineyard. The crisp, clean, Chablis-like styles go well with simple seafood, light chicken dishes, and salads. Richer Chardonnays marry well with cream or oil-based sauces.

Sommelier Secret

Since the 1990s, big, oaky, buttery Chardonnays from California have enjoyed explosive popularity. More recently, the pendulum has begun to swing in the opposite direction, towards a clean, crisp style that rarely utilizes new oak. These Old-World style wines have been dubbed the “New California Chardonnays,” and anyone who claims they do not like Chardonnay should give them a try.
