Dark toasted biscuits and lemon peel aromas lead to a powerful and savory palate that draws out more berry-focused fruits. Punchy through the finish. Based on the 2012 vintage with 48% of reserve wine that is stored in oak. A blend of 65% pinot noir, 30% chardonnay and 5% pinot meunier. 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.

Based 70% on the 2013 vintage plus 30% oaked reserve wines, the NV Royale Réserve Brut blends 65% Pinot Noir with 30% Chardonnay and 5% Pinot Meunier. The recent release was disgorged as Brut (with eight grams per liter of dosage) in July 2017 and opens with a clear and very delicate bouquet of red fruits (raspberries). The palate is light and finessed yet structured and finishes with good minerality and length. This is delicious. Tasted at the domaine in April 2018. - Stephan Reinhardt

On the nose, there are enticing aromas of brioche and pastry dough, leading into spice and citrus notes. On entry, this shows doughy richness, as well as tropical fruits that then lead to more mineral driven flavors, white florals and lemon curd/citrus peel. There is good verve and the bead is persistent, giving a mouth-filling mousse and a well-rounded finish.
