The 2019 summer heatwave worried us a lot: water shortage, too much warmth on the grapes… but the harvest held a good surprise in store for us: high-quality ripe grapes and a good sugar level, while keeping the acidity that is vital to a good Champagne. A great reward for our hard work throughout the year!
Our vines that we always pamper! Following on from the sustainable wine-growing methods (culture raisonnée) that we have been implementing for many years, we just validated our HVE certification (High Environmental Value): this seal assures you that we work in the best possible way to preserve the environment.
Our vineyard is currently putting on its beautiful autumn colors: the shades of green, yellow and red make the landscape wonderful… It reminds us that the year-end celebrations are upon us. And how can we think about those festive moments without these renowned little bubbles that are the envy of the world?
We offer you our whole traditional assortment of Champagne stemmed from our three grape varieties, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. The Blanc de Blancs and the Rosé just won a gold medal in the 2020 Gilbert et Gaillard guide; we are waiting for the results of the 2020 Hachette guide. At the end of the year, the 2013 Millésime will replace the 2012 Millésime.
Don’t forget about our Ratafia, a delicious aperitif made with grape must and Fine Champagne (a blend of wine spirits).
You can also find our Champagne Maurice Philippart:

In November and December, carrying on the family tradition, we will be travelling across France to deliver our Champagne Maurice Philippart at the lowest rate. Order as early as possible, think about collective purchase orders, and if possible, we will gladly visit you to deliver your Champagne before the holydays.
We thank you for your trust and your fidelity.
