Champagne AOC Non Dosè - Philipponat
|VARIETY||65 % Pinot Noir, 30 % Chardonnay, 5 % Pinot Meunier|
|PAIRING||Aperitif - Sushi - Fish|
A cuvée produced from the blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier that is perfectly balanced and capable of offering the magnificent characteristics of the territory.
The grapes coming essentially from Grands and Premiers Crus located in the heart of Champagne, follow a traditional winemaking process which avoids premature oxidation. The malolactic fermentation is partial and the aging of the reserve wines takes place in wooden barrels, this to allow the aromas to acquire greater complexity. No dosage, this cuvée is capable of expressing all the organoleptic qualities of the base wine thanks to the total absence of sugar. Aging on yeasts takes place at a constant controlled temperature of 12°C for 3 years.
It appears in the glass with a pale golden appearance and a fine and persistent foam. It conquers the sense of smell with an amazing floral bouquet where scents of lime, hawthorn and vine flowers are evident.
It offers the palate a lively but not too aggressive sip, maintaining a delicate combination between the aroma due to the notes of lemon and orange peel, and minerality and vinosity. The finish is long and evolves on aromas that recall nuances of warm bread and fresh apple.
Excellent wine as an aperitif or to pair with cold seafood dishes, raw fish and sushi.
