Champagne Philipponnat

Cuvée 1522 Brut

    • Description :

      The name of Cuvée 1522 is a tribute to the year when the Philipponnat family settled in the village of Aÿ, in the heart of the Champagne wine-growing area. The family's ancestors can be traced back in time through the House archives right back to the first, Apvril le Philipponnat, who from 1522 owned vines in "Le Léon", between Aÿ and Dizy. The Pinot Noir comes from the vineyard at "Le Léon" in Aÿ, and the Chardonnay from the village of Oger. A portion of the must is vinified in wooden barrels without malolactic fermentation. Aged for five to seven years.
