The Philipponnat family has been based in the Champagne region since the 17th century. Their history dates effectively back to 28th July 1697, when Pierre Philipponnat registered his coat of arms – chequered in gold and red – still the emblem of the house to this day.
It is best known for its great Prestige Cuvee, Clos des Goisses. As with most Pinot Noir based Champagnes, it is full bodied and ages very well. It is truly one of the best buys in Champagne.
