For over a hundred years Philipponnat family has owned one of the most special vineyards in Champagne. It’s a steep 45 degree southward facing chalky hill with no shade. A shadeless slope by the name of Clos des Goisses. It enjoys eternal sunshine and has been protected by a dry stone wall for centuries. The beginning of the Philipponnat Champagne house dates back to 1522, when the family was supplying the Sun King Louis XIV’s court with their outstanding produce. Sunny Philipponat.
