Champagne Philipponnat located in a small village of Mareuil-sur-Ay with a magnificent gate, a small, high-quality champagne house. Owns 17 hectares of vines and buys grapes from approximately the same area to meet their needs. The house was founded in 1910 by brothers Auguste and Pierre Philipponnat and in 1935, bought land from several vineyard owners and thus created Clos de Goisses, a 5 hectare walled vineyard with 'a steep', one of Champagne’s most exceptional locations. Sunny southern slope down towards the river, a location that they are very proud of. The grapes ripen well thanks to the great sun exposure. In fact, the champagne ages on its lees in the cellar for 10 years before being released.
