"This shows lovely balance and integration, with the fine, lacy mousse carrying savory notes of sliced almond and fleur de sel, layered with baked apple, lemon curd and honeycomb accents. Fresh and focused on the chalky finish. Disgorged August 2016. Drink now through 2027. 900 cases made. — AN"

"This was disgorged in May 2016 and has a savory, richer feel to it with dried spiced-cherry fruits, woody notes and hints of chocolate on the nose. The palate has a bold and flavorsome core with yellow-plum and dried-cherry flavors before finishing with ripe tannins. Drink now. A blend of 65% pinot noir and 35% chardonnay."

"The 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. Disgorged September 2016."

Product Description:

"The name of Cuvée 1522 is a tribute to the year when the Philipponnat family settled in the village of Ay, in the heart of the Champagne wine-growing area. The family’s ancestors can be traced back in time through the House archives right back to the first, Apvril le Philipponnat, who from 1522 owned vines in “Le Léon”, between Ay and Dizy.

Deep, bright gold in colour. Fine bubbles form a persistent ring. The nose is initially expressive and open, mingling generous notes of warm bread and honey. A superb richness comes through in notes of honey, caramelised mirabelle plums and a hint of vanilla. The finish is tangy, which is typical of this vintage." - Winery
