The L.V., or Long Vieillissement, is Philipponnat’s ‘long aging’ project. It is widely accepted that the Clos des Goisses is one of the finest wines in Champagne for aging and needs at least 10 to 15 years to unveil its true majesty. In short, for more than two decades Philipponnat has been holding back a portion of the Clos des Goisses to be released over time. From such an exceptional year, you can expect a wine well worth waiting for. Packaged in a solid oak box. While there have already been some late-disgorged wines released over the years, the L.V. range now formalises a yearly release at the same time as the current vintage. Please note, we are talking about maturation on lees here, with late disgorgement for release. The 1997 L.V is a blend of 66% Pinot Noir and 34% Chardonnay vinified under then chef de cave Norbert Thiébert and aged for a quarter of a century in Philipponnat’s Caveau du Trésor.
