Philipponnat Royale Réserve Brut Tasting Note
Philipponnat Royale Réserve Brut is a pale gold colour and a persistent foam. On the nose, it shows aromas of citrus, lime blossom and Hawthorn, as well as delicate bakery notes. In the mouth, it reveals itself fresh but without aggression. Well-formed with a citric nuance developing a tasty palate of strawberries and fresh apples.
