Champagne Philipponnat - Royale Reserve Brut

73.00

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.
