Philipponnat Royale Reserve
The Royale Reserve is the emblematic blend of the House of Philipponnat, combining freshness and vinosity. Drawing on the historic tradition of Philipponnat in the region of Ay and Mareuil-sur-Ay, Royale Reserve takes advantage of the rich and powerful Pinot Noir grapes from the southern side of the Montagne de Reims, which always makes up the majority of the blend.
On the eye: Deep gold in color with amber glints. Delicate froth, lively and lingering.
On the nose: The first nose reveals vine blossom, linden and fresh, lightly toasted bread. After breathing, aromas of summer berries, citrus fruit and honey develop.
On the palate: Fine vinous attack on the palate, fruity (redcurrant, raspberry, ripe grape) and full-bodied, generous and long. Light notes of biscuit and freshly baked bread on the finish.
As an aperitif, served chilled but not ice-cold (8°C). Enhances hot or cold white meats, poultry and premium charcuterie. An ideal complement to cold buffets, fish and seafood.
