2016 Philipponnat Blanc de Noirs Extra Brut, Champagne French Sparkling Wine

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. Extra brut dosage (4.25 g/litre) to maintain a balance between freshness and vinosity without masking the wine’s character and purity.

Nose: Luscious and fruit-driven with notes of pastry with fresh pear, almond and cinnamon.

Taste: The palate is creamy and round with notes of praline, caramel and apricot jam. The finish is fresh with spicy hints of cinnamon and clove. A sunny wine, very representative of the year.

Pairs with; Chicken tagine with apricots and almonds. Enhances terrines and foie gras. Serve chilled at 8 to 9°C as an aperitif or 10 to 12°C to accompany a meal.,
