Philipponnat Mareuil Royal Reserve Champagne n/v

Cellared since Dec 2005. Straw gold. Fine bead. Fruity pinot nose with fresh bread notes and peach flowers. Fresh and clean palate with elegant but good ripe fruit and medium autolysis. Everything lingers on the finish. 18/20 Ay, Champagne, France [tasted 30-12-2011] Advertisements

Philipponnat Mareuil Royal Reserve Champagne n/v

Cellared since Dec 2005. Lovely light gold with a touch of green. Good bead; yeasty with a touch of marmite on the nose; mellow yet crisp acid with apple and a touch of fine cider. In balance – ripe, rich and lovely. 18.5/20 Ay, Champagne, France [tasted 21-08-2010]
