Champagne Philipponnat 500 Years Collection Box
The Philipponnat 500 Years Collection Box is a very luxurious wooden box that was released in honor of the 500th anniversary of this iconic champagne house. This beautiful box contains two bottles of Grand Cru Cuvée 1522 LV (LV means Long Aging) from vintages 2000 and 2002, a tribute to the birth year of the famous house. Vintage 2000 is the first vintage of this cuvée. Only a few hundred bottles were made of these vintages. The 3rd bottle in this beautiful luxury wooden box also contains a bottle of Grand Cru Cuvée Le Léon, a historic parcel from Philipponnat, an extra-brut vintage 2014. This 2014 is the successor to the 2006 and is therefore only the 2nd vintage. In addition, this chest contains a beautiful book about 500 years of Philipponnat.

The history of the Philipponnat family in Champagne goes back to no less than 1697. In the centuries that followed, the family was active in making Champagne for many years. The traditional Champagne House Philipponnat was finally founded in 1910 by Auguste and Pierre Philipponnat. They managed to get hold of beautiful historic cellars, which originated in the 18th century. The house is located in Mareuil-sur-Ay, five kilometers east of Epernay, in the heart of the Champagne region.
The cool cellars are the perfect place for the Champagnes to mature on the yeast cells, giving the wine complexity and fine bubbles. Philipponnat wines undergo a bottle aging of at least two years, but usually even three years. In the case of the Millésimé, this period is even longer. The wine of the Clos des Goisses is even stored in the cellar for years, so that it can keep its fresh and complex character for years.
Philipponnat has a total of 17 hectares of vineyards, all with Grand Cru status. In addition, grapes are purchased from first-class producers in the area. We only work with suppliers who guarantee perfect quality grapes and with whom Philipponnat maintains a long-term relationship. The production is 500,000 bottles per year. The wines mainly use pinot – noir – grapes, which give the wines breadth and complexity.
