In the small village of Mareuil-sur-Ay a few kilometres east of Epernay, we find Champagne Philipponnat in a handsome house with a magnificent gate. Philipponnat is a small, high-quality champagne house. it owns 17 hectares of vines and buy grapes from approximately the same area to meet their needs.
The house was founded in 1910 by brothers Auguste and Pierre Philipponnat and it was Pierre who in 1935 bought land from several vineyard owners and thus created Clos de Goisses, a 5 hectare walled vineyard with one of Champagne's most exceptional locations: a steep, sunny southern slope down towards the river, a location Champagne Philipponnat is very proud of. Here the grapes ripen well thanks to the superb sun exposure. In addition, the champagne ages on its lees in the cellar for 10 years before being released.
