Philipponnat Blanc de Noirs Extra Brut 2012
An outstanding demonstration of Philipponnat’s consummate expertise in blending and vinifying Pinot Noir.
On the eye: Deep golden color; fine, bright bubbles.
On the nose: Initially the nose is intense and fresh with citrus notes of lemon zest and orange, leading into aromas of fresh fruit and a subtly peppery finish.
On the palate: On the palate the attack is fresh and generous, with notes of stewed fruits and creamy-textured pear. This 100% Pinot Noir cuvée combines vinosity, fruit and a wonderful, persistent minerality that is very characteristic of the vintage.
Poultry and game birds. Enhances terrines and foie gras.
