Made only in the best years from first press juice sourced exclusively from grapes grown in Premier and Grand Cru plots in Montagne de Reims and Philipponnat's vineyards in Mareuil-sur-Ay.

Partial malolactic fermentation for the wines in vats and vinification without malolactic fermentation for the wines in wooden barrels. Aged for five to seven years to develop tertiary aromas which are the hallmark of extended aging on lees.

Grape varieties: 100% Pinot Noir

Altitude: 170m ASL

Exposure: South

Soil: Chalk

Dosage at disgorgement: 4.25 g/l

Bottle fermentation on the lees: 5 - 7 years

Alcohol: 12.0%

Tasting Notes: An expression of Pinot Noir with spicy, peppery notes mingled with acacia flower honey, mineral, and red currant. An ideal pairing with poultry, gamebirds, terrines and foie gras.
