The red Champagne wine which is used to craft Royale Réserve Rosé is produced from grapes grown in the Mareuil-sur-Ay terroir, one of the Philipponnat family’s historic crus and the village where the House’s headquarters are now established.
75% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay, 5% Pinot Meunier. First press juice of mainly Grand and Premier Crus grapes from the heart of the Champagne wine-growing area. Reserve wines (25 to 30% of the blend) are aged in wooden barrels using the solera system to incorporate older wines without losing freshness.
The first nose reveals summer berries with notes of cherry and wild strawberry. Notes of citrus and grapefruit peel develop with time, elegant and pure. full and ample on the palate, with good acidity and a light astringency that brings out the fruitiness.
