The Winery

Philipponnat

This has been one of my favorite Champagne Sources for many years.
–Allen Meadows

For nearly 500 years, the Philipponnat family has been growing grapes from the soils in Champagne. The famed Champagne house began as a grower and supplier of the wines of Louis XIV’s court. The winery is particularly known for its Clos de Goisses vintage cuvées which are grown on a historical, 13.6 acre vineyard called Mont de Mareuil. Located on a 45 degree slope facing south, the Mont de Mareuil provides the Mareuil-sur- Ay region of Champagne with the warmest terroir. All of their 42 total acres of vineyards are Premier or Grand Cru, but what makes Philipponnat unique in the cellar is that they use a form of solera system aging for their reserve, non-vintage wine blends. They claim to be the first to indicate the prominent year of the NV blends, dosage level, and disgorging date on the back label. Philipponnat’s range of wine is some of the finest Champagne on the market today.
