1522 commemorates the year the Philipponnat family, led by Avril De Philipponnat, settled in the village of Ay in the heart of Champagne; 500 years have passed with each vintage embodying the expression of the House’s unique terroirs exhibited as faithfully and naturally as possible. Philipponnat hand hoe and horse plough the soil to preserve the centuries old fragile and precious terroirs emphasising conservation as a way of moving into the future. The majority of the sedimentary rock in Champagne is composed of chalk, marl and limestone creating a porous subsoil, ideal for drainage and providing excellent growing conditions. Chalk is the favourite of the Champagne vines, formed from fragments of marine organisms deposited millions of years ago. It acts as a reservoir to regulate the vine’s water consumption thereby helping to achieve the famous balance of acidity, ripeness and berry aroma. With the perfect storm of soils, sunlight and latitude the Champagne houses are truly onto something. And what has Avril given us 500 years later? A blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with 8 years on its lees is the answer, with an intense, floral, blossomy nose with elderflower and violet. Almond, blackcurrant, black cherry, dried fruit and nuts with a hint of something candied jostle on the palate but all the while maintaining a glorious freshness and vitality. Is Monday night special enough for this beast? Hell yeah.

Delivery Times

We will look to have your delivery with you within 3 working days of receiving the order but please ask if you need it by a certain date and we'll do our best.


We will endeavour to deliver vintages as advertised but they often change faster than we can update (we're pretty slow). So, again, it may be wise to confirm before ordering if you're in need of something particular. Please note: Some bottle images may not show the current vintage.


Surcharges often apply to deliveries outside mainland England so wise to confirm before you order. Indeed, Northern Ireland is beyond us unless shipping charges agreed beforehand.


If something is wrong with your order or it's not what you expected, please get in touch and we'll sort it out. We'll look to rectify any mistakes where possible.
