2007 Philipponnat Cuvée 1522 Grand Cru Extra Brut Millésimé, Champagne, France 2007This name commemorates the year in which the Philipponnat family settled in the village of Ay, in the heart of Champagne. As far back as the Philipponnat archives go, there are records of the family ancestors, the first of whom, Apvril le Philipponnat, was an "owner of vines at Le Leon, between Ay and Dizy, from 1522. The exceptional 1522 is produced from the finest Philipponnat wines, most of which are fermented in wooden casks.
Anthony GalloniThe 2007 Cuvée 1522 is an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next handful of years. Apricot, pineapple, pastry, chamomile, brioche and vanillin notes give the 2007 much of its racy, flamboyant personality. I don't see the 2007 as being especially ageworthy, but it is quite inviting today. Dosage is 4.5 grams per liter.
