Royale Réserve Brut is the purest expression of the House’s style. Offering a superb balance between structure, persistence and vinosity, this cuvée reveals the essential character of the Mareuil-sur-Ay terroir (where mainly Pinot Noir grapes are grown, which is predominant in the blend). After three years aging on lees, Royale Réserve Brut is pleasantly mature while losing nothing of its freshness, making it an ideal aperitif wine. Its vinosity enhances white meat, charcuterie and fish.
Blend: 65% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay, 5% Pinot Meunier
2015 Base Vintage, 8g/L Dosage, Disgorged 2019
A moderately golden color is indicative of the relatively mature nose that reflects plenty of toasty yeast, brioche and white orchard fruit compote aromas. The delicious, complex and caressing flavors are supported by a medium fine mousse that is neither soft nor aggressive on the lightly citrus-infused and agreeably dry but not austere finish. This is a lovely NV Brut that offers notably better depth than is typical for the genre. Moreover, while it will certainly hold at this level for some years to come, it's already drinking quite well now.
A very attractive and quite flavorful style with vibrant citrus and peachy stone fruit, leading to a palate that carries gently toasted cashews and quite a vibrant, fleshy mid-palate. Drink now.
