Grand Blanc, blended exclusively from Chardonnay grapes, is a remarkable exception in Philipponnat’s range of wines, the House’s hallmark being the Pinot Noir grape. This is a unique opportunity to discover another facet of the House’s style in the shape of a fine, moderately dosed blanc de blancs.
100% Chardonnay from Côte des Blancs, Montagne de Reims and Clos des Goisses. First press juice from exclusively Premier and Grand Cru plots.
A subtle and elegant nose, with intense notes of citrus and white flowers which become more complex after some time in the galss. the palate offers a fine, full bodied weight with great minerality and subtlety, perfectly attuned to the wine’s aromatic expression of mandarin and grapefruit. The characteristic Philipponnat style comes through even more strongly in the finish, with generous vinosity and lingering persistence.
