The purest expression of Philipponnat wines, this champagne is vinified using traditional methods to avoid premature oxidation.
Partial malolactic fermentation and reserve wines are aged in casks to allow the aromas to develop complexity.
Moderate dosage (8 g/litre) to maintain a balance between freshness,fruitiness and vinosity without masking the wine’s character and purity.
Aging is done on the lees in the House’s cellars at a constant temperature of 12°C for three years, which is far longer than the legal minimum requirement of 15 months.
This delicate froth, lively and lingering Champagne is served on 8 degree Centigrade as an aperitif or accompanied with white and cold meat for perfect evenings.
