The palate has a smooth, even and suave feel with handy freshness in the mid-palate. Stony grip to close. Drink or hold.

Offering up notes of fresh peach, honeycomb, mint and warm bread, it's medium to full-bodied, broad and textural, with lively acids, excellent concentration and a chalky finish. It's showing very well.- WK

Bright and finely cut, the Blanc de Noirs has so much to offer. Lifted aromatics and nuanced fruit meld together in an impeccably balanced Champagne that bristles with energy. For this cuvée, Philipponnat blends fruit from sites with both south and north-facing exposures for maximum complexity. Dosage is 4.25 grams per liter. Disgorged: May, 2018. -- Antonio Galloni

But if one anticipates robust power and savoury profundity, one may be a little surprised. It's a discrete wine but the most striking message conveys an almost balletic elegance, a diaphanous filigree of restraint and manicured potential. Red fruit characteristics are woven beautifully into a finely textured ensemble, which majors above all on finesse.
