Led by Charles Philipponnat, in the new millennium, Champagne Philipponnat has been on a wonderful journey where all work processes and all partners have been inspected and from being a reliable, but also somewhat anonymous Champagne house, Philipponnat is now all the way up in that league where of course still can be adjusted, but it will not be much better. And the absolutely central wines in this transformation are not Clos de Goisses and the 3 new exclusive cuvées, but rather this Royale Réserve Brut, which now appears as a full-bodied, seductive, very broadly appealing Champagne that radiates everything that Champagne can when it is best.
It is basically a first pressing from something that ends up being 65% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay and 5% Pinot Meunier from a large number of parcels mainly with Grand and Premier Cru status. Vinification takes place in stainless steel with partial malolactic fermentation, and after 6 months sur Lie, up to 30% “Vin de Reserve” is added from an impressive battery of casks of various sizes, which together make up Philipponnat’s so-called “Solera system”, which gradually includes wines from more than 15 different vintages. Sugar and own yeast cultures are added to the wine, and after the renewed fermentation in the bottle, at least 36 months follow on the lees in the kilometer-long cellar corridors before it is disgorged into Brut with a dosage of 7-8 g per bottle. litres.
The precise details can be seen from the fine back label on the bottles, where Philipponnat are simply first movers. Thus, the year the wine is based on, the proportion of reserve wine, the time of tirage, the time of disgorgement and dosage are disclosed.
A classy, delicately foaming and finely lively sparkling Non Vintage with the obligatory toasted bread and then fine fruity notes of summer berries in the form of red currants, raspberries and ripe grapes, which go well together with honey and ripe citrus. Almost full and certainly very generous. Elegant as an aperitif, with oysters, with shellfish or with charcuterie.
