Very bright, zippy and primary. On the nose lime and slate with a sherbets zest. Bright and punchy on the palate with tart acidity. Young but fun. Doesn’t have the substance of some of the more serious 08’s

The 2008 1522 is another compelling mid-tier wine in the Philipponnat range. Creamy, sensual and inviting, the 2008 is super-expressive today. Bright Chardonnay notes add energy to the Pinot fruit in an effortless, gracious Champagne. Orchard fruit, dried flowers, chamomile and lemon confit all resonate through to the finish. The blend is 58% Pinot Noir (from Aÿ and Verzenay) and 42% Chardonnay (from Cramant). Dosage is 4.25 grams per liter. Disgorged: July, 2018. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, July 2019)

Honeyed apples, hints of plum, and toast. Solid acid core. Rich, yeasty, but lacking some elegance that I expect will show with some age.

16.5/20 (91/100) Аромат лежалого яблока, груш, лимонов и сдобы. Высокая кислотность. Лимоны, яблоки и незрелый ананас во вкусе. Строгое. #dfwe2018
