The House now owns seventeen hectares of vines, all situated in the Grand and Premier Cru vineyards of Avenay, Aÿ and Mareuil-sur-Aÿ. Traditional methods of harvest such as working the soil through horse ploughing and hoeing by hand are still observed at Champagne Philipponnat today. Their techniques of partial fermentation in oak and partial malolactic fermentation result in a complex and long-lived style of champagne. They were also one of the first producers to print disgorgement dates on the label of their bottles, commencing this practice in the mid-1990s.

Champagne Philipponnat was founded in 1910 in Mareuil-sur-Ay. The Philipponnat family, originally from Fribourg in Switzerland, moved to Aÿ in 1522. The ancestor of April Philipponnat was a soldier of King François. Having proved his bravery during the Battle of Marignan, the King rewarded him by granting him land in Aÿ. The house owns a vineyard of 21 hectares, mainly planted with Pinot Noir and distributed in the towns of Aÿ, Avenay-Val-d'Or, Mareuil-sur-Ay and Mutigny. Today, Charles Philipponnat, representative of the sixteenth generation, watches over the destiny of the House.
The know-how Philipponnat expresses itself in particular is the principle of solera under wood. Tradition of the house since time immemorial, it involves keeping reserve wines in oak casks and reintroducing them in non-vintage blends (at a proportion of a quarter to a third), then using this blend as a reserve wine for the following blend. In this way, a gradual dilution makes it possible to keep in each bottle the trace of the vintages assembled since the origin. Each head winemaker has endeavoured to transmit this know-how to their successor.
Philipponnat was also the first house to specify on its counter-labels the dominant ‘base’ year in the composition of its non-vintage champagne, the dosage and the date of disgorgement, thus communicating to its prescribers and consumers the identity of each cuvée.
