“Vanilla shortbread seems seductive on the nose. Slender but fine palate majors on the lemon, spice, and hints of honey in a soothing and gentle fashion. Lovely aperitif. Drinking Window 2020 – 2025.” – Decanter
Tasting Note: The Cuvée Royale Brut is a superbly intense, light-golden yellow sparkled with copper. The initial aroma is discreet, fine and wonderfully complex. A bouquet of apples, pears and white peaches evolves alongside elegant, more tropical flavours of pineapple. Lively, yet supple in the mouth, combining complexity, lightness, body and freshness. The floral notes of white flowers give way to the fruity ones of vine peaches towards the end, with a pleasantly tangy finish.
