In a remarkable union of Hungarian history and French champagne culture, the iconic Philipponnat Champagne house, with a remarkable 500-year history,  has selected Aranybastya to bring the essence of their unparalleled craftsmanship to your glass. 

A Symphony of Tradition and Innovation: The Philipponnat Legacy

For almost five centuries, the Philipponnat family has been an integral part of the Champagne landscape. From supplying the court of Louis XIV to holding positions as magistrates and Royal Mayors of Ay, their legacy is deeply rooted in the region's rich history. Established in 1522, the Philipponnat Champagne house has built a true culture around the celebration of champagne over the years.

Savoring Excellence: Craftsmanship and Terroir

Crafting their sparkling wines in the heart of the Champagne region, between Ay and Mareuil-sur-Ay, using their pinot noir grapes, Philipponnat stands as a symbol of excellence and tradition. Philipponnat Champagne embodies a unique heritage, with historic 18th-century cellars that once belonged to the Château de Mareuil. With 20 hectares of vineyards, including the famed Clos des Goisses, every bottle is a testament to the dedication and artistry that has defined the Philipponnat name for over a century.

The Hidden Gem: Clos des Goisses

At the heart of this celebration lies the crown jewel of Philipponnat, the Clos des Goisses vineyard. Nestled within the Champagne region, this 5.8-hectare plot with a jaw-dropping 45% incline is nothing short of extraordinary. Enclosed by walls, it stands as the premier Grand Cru of the entire Champagne wine region, producing exceptional grapes that first inspired Pierre Philipponnat in 1935. Facing due south, the pure chalk slope of Clos des Goisses receives sunlight from sunrise to sunset, creating a champagne that captures the essence of the land like no other.

Exclusivity Redefined: The Unique Partnership

Becoming the first ambassador of the esteemed Philipponnat Champagne house in Hungary is a rare and exceptional honor, as it is uncommon for a French champagne house to select an ambassador or form an alliance in Hungary. While their products can be found elsewhere, exclusive offerings and special editions are available only through our unique partnership.

"The fact that a French champagne house chooses a restaurant as its ambassador is something that only a few restaurants in France can do, and in the case of Philipponnat, we are the only one. Thanks to this special relationship, you can only find some of their specialties here."

– shared Gábor Keresztes, F&B Director of Aranybastya Restaurant and Café.

This exceptional partnership is not only an honor but also a mark of quality. The choice of Philipponnat signifies that the champagne house recognizes the sophistication, high-level service, and culinary experiences offered by Aranybastya Restaurant. We proudly embraces its role as the loyal representative of Philipponnat in Hungary.
