Winemaker Notes

Rose-hued gold with coppery notes and a fine bubbles. The nose shows red fruits of raspberry and wild cherries. A harmonious balance of red and white wines. Exceptional as an aperitif or with dessert. The composition of this cuvee is essentially that of the traditional Brut. However, it recours supplementary Chardonnay and thus reaches a perfect balance. Its delicately pink appearance cornes front the addition of red wine front our Mareuil vineyards.

WS 91
Wine Spectator
This minerally Champagne is firm and focused, with a fine, creamy mousse and tightly meshed flavors of peach, smoke, honey and blanched almond. Drink now through 2019. 500 cases made.
BH 90
Burghound.com
This is remarkably closed and inexpressive with a timid and not especially fruity nose that is by contrast quite fresh. The effervescence is abundant but not especially aggressive as there is good roundness and volume to the delicious, forward and easy to like flavors that offer good but not outstanding depth and length. While the nose certainly needs time to open, the palate impression is almost ready...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The performance of Philipponnat's NV Brut Reserve Rosee Disg. 3/2013 (yes, spelled with two "e"s) fascinates but also puzzles me a bit, since in principle this represents more or less "the same" cuvee as the Brut Reserve tasted alongside, except with the addition of some still Pinot Noir. But then, I'm forced to remind myself that one can never change just a single aspect of a wine, since each addition or subtraction potentially influences the expression of myriad components. In any case, this rose not only adds tart-edged, highly stimulating fresh red raspberry and rhubarb to the luscious juiciness of white peach, but also somehow engenders a sense of mid-palate sap, finishing persistence, and intrigue - by way of subtly, nobly fungal suggestions as well as hints of chalk - that its "white" counterpart lacked. This ought to remain delicious over the next couple of years.

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.

Sauternes

View all wine

Sweet and unctuous but delightfully charming, the finest Sauternes typically express flavors of exotic dried tropical fruit, candied apricot, dried citrus peel, honey or ginger and a zesty beam of acidity.

Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris, and Muscadelle are the grapes of Sauternes. But Sémillon's susceptibility to the requisite noble rot makes it the main variety and biggest contributor to what makes Sauternes so unique. As a result, most Sauternes estates are planted to about 80% Sémillon. Sauvignon is prized for its balancing acidity and Muscadelle adds aromatic complexity to the blend with Sémillon.

Botrytis cinerea or “noble rot” is a fungus that grows on grapes only in specific conditions and its onset is crucial to the development of the most stunning of sweet wines.

In the fall, evening mists develop along the Garonne River, and settle into the small Sauternes district, creeping into the vineyards and sitting low until late morning. The next day, the sun has a chance to burn the moisture away, drying the grapes and concentrating their sugars and phenolic qualities. What distinguishes a fine Sauternes from a normal one is the producer’s willingness to wait and tend to the delicate botrytis-infected grapes.
