94/100 – James Suckling
“Focused and direct aromas of stone, dried apple, lemon and bread dough follow through to a full-bodied palate with a framed and vivid character. It’s very dry and finely textured with well-crafted bubbles. Dry at the finish. A serious Champagne with lots of verve. Serve as a lively aperitif or as an accompaniment to food, such as raw fish. Drink now or hold.” – James Suckling
Tasting Note: The Cuvée Royale Brut Nature has a deep ruddy-golden colour and light foam. Delicate roses and peonies to begin with, which gradually intertwine with pronounced spicy fragrances. Apple and pear together with peach and nectarine at first, followed by peppery flavours towards the end. Perfect for a refreshing aperitif. This champagne pairs superbly with sushi and shellfish. And it absolutely sublimes Asian food.
