Winery Notes:
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.

Tasting Notes:
Light gold with a lively, delicate froth. Great subtlety. Subtle aromas of white flowers and white-fleshed fruit. After breathing, notes of hazelnut and brioche develop. Full and generous with a subtle, melting texture.

Pairing:
Ideal as an aperitif. An excellent accompaniment to fish and shellfish (prawns and lobster, whether poached or served with white butter sauce). Serve at 6 to 8°C as an aperitif or at 9 to 11°C to accompany a meal.

The Blend:
100% Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs and the Clos des Goisses. First press juice from exclusively Premier and Grand Cru plots.

Vinification:
Vinified using traditional methods to avoid premature oxidation. Partial malolactic fermentation for the wines in vats and vinification without malolactic fermentation for the wines in wooden barrels. An elegant wine that preserves a balance between freshness, floral aromas and vinosity. Extra brut dosage (4.25 g/litre) to preserve its original purity and distinction.

Aging:
Aged for at least five to seven years to develop maximum complexity and to highlight the secondary and tertiary aromas which are the hallmark of extended aging on lees.


Ratings & Reviews

90 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous Media:
"The 2009 Extra-Brut Grand Blanc shows the natural radiance of the year in a supple, racy personality. Hints of tropical fruit, pineapple, butter, pastry and vanillin notes all run through this super-expressive, inviting Blanc des Blancs from Philipponnat. The 2009 is a terrific choice for near and medium-term drinking. The Grand Blanc is a blend of fruit from Grauves, Trepaille, Avenay-Val-d’Or, Vertus and Mareuil-sur-Aÿ. Dosage is 4.25 grams per liter. Disgorged: June, 2019." - Antonio Galloni (Jul 2019)
