Philipponnat MV 'Royale Réserve' Brut Rosé, Champagne, France (375ml Half Bottle)

Although the family can trace its Champagne roots back to 1522, the modern house was founded in 1910 by Pierre and Auguste Philipponnat. Pierre acquired Champagne’s single oldest vineyard, the Clos des Goisses monopole in 1935
and the estate remains best known for both the prestige cuvée from this unique site, and for their rich, complex Pinot Noir-based blends. Philipponnat has risen to even greater heights since the appointment of Auguste’s grandson, Charles Philipponnat, as director in 1999.

Philipponnat owns 18 hectares of predominantly Pinot Noir vines on the steep chalk slopes in the southern Montagne de Reims villages of Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, Aÿ, Avenay and Mutigny. The estate augments this with fruit purchased from long-term grower relationships in the best terroirs of the Côte des Blancs, Montagne de Reims, Vallée de la Marne, and Riceys.

Chef de Cave: Thierry Garnier 

Varieties: 70% Pinot Noir primarily from Philipponat’s own vineyards, with 28% Chardonnay, and 2% Pinot Meunier from the heart of Champagne region. Addition of 5-7% still red Pinot Noir, usually from the Clos des Goisses.

Terroir:  A mixture of chalk-derived clays.

Vinification: Approximately 30% reserve wine is incorporated into the blend. Bottles age 3 years before disgorgement.
