    Philipponnat, Champagne, France
    1991 Grand Blanc
    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.

    Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, Champagne is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to be labeled ‘Champagne’ within the EU and many New World countries, a wine must originate in this northeastern region of France and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide. Well-drained limestone chalk soil defines much of the region, lending a mineral component to the wines. The climate here is marginal—ample acidity is a requirement for sparkling wine, so overripe grapes are to be avoided. Weather differences from year to year create significant variation between vintages, and in order to maintain a consistent house style, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years.

    With nearly negligible exceptions, three varieties are permitted for use in Champagne: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. These can be blended together or bottled varietally, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, delicacy, and elegance, as well as bright and lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit, and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body, and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while one comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’
