An outstanding demonstration of Philipponnat’s consummate expertise in blending and vinifying Pinot Noir. CRAFTING. The blend: First press juice from exclusively Premier and Grand Cru plots. 100% Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims and our vineyards in Mareuil-sur-Ay. Vinification: Vinified using traditional methods to avoid premature oxidation. Partial malolactic fermentation for the wines in vats and vinification without malolactic fermentation for the wines in wooden barrels. Extra-brut dosage (4.25 g/litre) to maintain a balance between freshness and vinosity without masking the wine’s character and purity. Aging: Aged for five to seven years to develop maximum complexity and to highlight the secondary and tertiary aromas which are the hallmark of extended aging on lees. TASTING. To the eye: Mid gold in colour with fine, creamy bubbles forming a persistent ring. With the nose: The authentic expression of Pinot Noir with notes of citrus and white blossom; an intense, complex nose. With the mouth: The ample, mineral palate expresses the characteristic fruitiness and vinosity of Pinot Noir. A very clear structure, with volume and lengthy aromatic persistence. Revealing spicy, peppery notes. DINING. Pairing: Poultry and game birds. Enhances terrines and foie gras. Serve chilled at 8 to 9°C as an aperitif or 10 to 12°C to accompany a meal. Storing: After being cellar-aged for several years, the Blanc de Noirs cuvée can be kept for at least five years, and even longer in the right conditions (a cool, dark cellar).
