Philipponnat Royale Reserve Brut
from Champagne, France
A Champagne composed mainly of Pinot Noir blended with Chardonnay and a small proportion of Pinot Meunier.
It is the culmination of blending 25 different crus from diverse areas of the Champagne region and from several vintage years.
The Brut Royale Réserve is a supple, fresh and fruity wine of great delicacy. On the nose there is citrus, red fruits and delicately yeasty fresh bread. The taste has crisp lime, fruity red currants and black berries and a smooth, well-structured finish.
Its quality is apparent in the extreme finesse and persistency of its bubbles.
A champagne to be enjoyed at any time!
"Baked apple, honey and nutmeg aromas with a hint of autolysis. Evolved, creamy flavors of peach, caramel and baguette. Excellent length with a defined aged nuance coupled with dried fruit and minerals in the close."
"Bright yellow with a steady mousse. Nervy citrus and pear aromas gain power with air, picking up smoky lees and fresh butter qualities. Taut and focused, with musky orchard fruit and candied lemon flavors and a suave candied floral note. I really like this wine's blend of energy and depth, as well as its finishing citrus cut."
International Wine Cellar
"The flavors are simple and clean, while the texture is luscious, creamy and round. The wine feels harmonious, complete. A generous young Champagne."
Wine & Spirits
"An attractively complex nose of brioche, pear and green apple leads to delicious flavors that possess excellent complexity as well as an aggressively effervescent nose that flirts with being foamy. There is excellent verve to the clean, crisp and well-balanced finish and this is drier than the dosage would typically suggest."
