Philipponnat Grand Blanc 2002

Cuvee: Blanc de Blancs
Vintage: 2002

Grand Blanc 2002 is exclusively blended from Chardonnay grapes from the best growths (1er Cru and Grand Cru) of the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims, including some white Clos des Goisses. It is a noteworthy exception in the otherwise Pinot Noir-dominated range of Philipponnat wines. While possessing vinosity and a creamy texture, it is true to the lightness and finesse of a great Blanc de Blancs.

Tasting notes

Eye

Light gold with delicate hints of green, with a particularly fine and persistent mousse.

Nose

Floral scents of linden blossom and lilies.

Palate

Definitely an “Easy Champagne”, there is an elegant balance between power and finesse. It is fresh with good vivacity and a long finish. Its texture is certainly mineral.

Food pairing

Grand Blanc is a superb apéritif Champagne for beautiful occasions. It will also be a wonderful companion for all sea food, especially scallops, lobster and crayfish.
