Cuvée 1522 is exceptional, blended exclusively from the most outstanding vineyards and grapes. It is named in honor of the Philipponnat family date of arrival in the Estate, 1522.
69% Pinot Noir and 31% Chardonnay.
The Pinot Noir comes from our vineyard “Le Léon” in Ay, and the Chardonnay from Mesnil‐sur‐ Oger.
A portion of the wines are vinified in wooden barrels without malolactic fermentation to preserve the wine’s freshness, allowing it to develop complexity. Both ample and tangy, this cuvée is eminently suitable for low dosage, extra brut, with only 4.25 g/litre, which is just one-third of the conventional dosage for brut champagne.
Aged for eight years. After this time, the freshness is still apparent, but the benefit of aging on lees has reached its full potential.
To the eye: Light gold in color.
With the nose: An intense, floral nose, with notes of fruit blossom, cherry, elderflower, and hints of violet.
With the mouth: Expressive and generous, it offers dark fruits aromas (blackberry, ripe even candied blackcurrant, black cherry) combined with notes of almond, hints of dried fruit and nuts. The finish is remarkably fresh for the vintage.
A perfect match for filet of venison. Cuvée 1552 is wonderfully full‐bodied, making it excellent champagne to accompany meals. Serve chilled but not too cold, around 8 to 9°C as an aperitif or 10 to 12°C to accompany a meal.
After optimal cellar aging, Cuvée 1522 can be kept for at least ten years in a cool and dark place, to develop in roundness and complexity.
