Royale Réserve (0.75 L)
BH 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.
