His name commemorates the vintage in which the Philipponnat family settled in the village of Ay, in the heart of Champagne. As far as the Maison's archives can be found, the family ancestors are traced, the first of which, Apvril le Philipponnat, was the owner of the vineyards since 1522. "Cuvée 1522" comes from Grand Cru vineyards: the pinot black comes from the vineyard "Le Léon" of Ay, while the chardonnay comes from the municipality of Oger in the Côte des Blancs. Fermentation partly in wooden barrels. Aging about 5-7 years on yeasts before dégorgement. Minimum dosage of 4 g / l.
Fine bubbles form a persistent ring.
Deep, bright gold in colour.
The nose is initially expressive and open, mingling generous notes of warm bread and honey.
A superb richness comes through in notes of honey, caramelised mirabelle plums and a hint of vanilla. The finish is tangy, which is typical of this vintage.

Grapes 35% Chardonnay, 65% Pinot Nero
Location The Pinot Noir comes from our vineyard at “Le Léon” in Ay, and the Chardonnay from Mesnil-sur-Oger and Oger.
Production technique 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 a brut champagne.
Vinification A portion of the wines are vinified in wooden barrels without malolactic fermentation to preserve the wine’s freshness, allowing it to develop complexity.
Aging Aged for eight years. After this time, the freshness is still apparent, but the benefit of aging on lees has reached full potential.
Alcohol 12.00% by volume
Matching The very dry character of this extra brut cuvée makes it a superb accompaniment to seafood and poached or grilled fish. Its dryness contrasts well with the fattiness of poultry such as capon. An even bolder match can be made with caviar, or very spicy dishes such as an Indian tandoori.

From this winery:
It was in 1935 that Pierre Philipponnat acquired their crown jewel: the Clos des Goisses vineyard. It’s 5.5 hectares of steeply sloping, south-facing vineyard (now 3.5 ha Pinot Noir, 2 ha Chardonnay, but back in 1964 it was exclusively Chardonnay), a...
