An attractive amalgam of quite fresh autolysis yeasty characters with bright chalky notes and a spray of citrus and fresh cut honeydew melon. The palate's generous, round and powerful, delivering a swathe of flavors running from citrus to blue and redder fruits, then spicy, savory more meaty flavors to finish. Good balance, weight and shape. Drink now. - Nick Stock

Expansive aromas of nectarine and ripe citrus fruits enlivened by chalky mineral, ginger and floral nuances. At once broad and nervy, offering enticing fresh citrus and orchard fruit flavors and deeper lees and honey qualities. This silky, nicely concentrated brut finishes with strong thrust and repeating floral character. -- Josh Raynolds

The current release of the Brut Royale Réserve from Philipponnat is comprised of a blend of sixty-five percent pinot noir, thirty percent chardonnay and five percent pinot meunier, with the blend including thirty-seven percent reserve wines. The dosage on this lovely Brut NV is eight grams per liter, and the wine offers up a fine bouquet of apple, bread fruit, a lovely base of chalky soil tones, fresh-baked bread and orange peel. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex, with a fine core, frothy mousse, crisp acids and impressive length and grip on the wellbalanced finish. A fine example. 2014-2030.
