||Bianco spumante metodo classico brut
||50% Chardonnay, 15% Pinot Bianco, 35% Pinot Meunier
||While deliciously fresh when young, the Royale Réserve ages well since its blending process is very similar to the blending of a vintage wine. Progressively, it will become more profound, and will age nicely for at least 5 years in a suitable cellar (cool and dark). Serve between 8-9°C
||Traditional, avoiding any premature oxidation. Malo-lactic fermentation is most often chosen for wines processed in vats. For the past few years, a portion of the wines have been processed in barrels in order to obtain a discrete hint which adds to the complexity of the blend. These wines do not undergo malo-lactic fermentation. The dosage (9 grams/litre) is low and the liqueurs are not aged, so that they do not influence the wine’s character and purity.
||Around 3 years on the yeast, much longer than the 15 month legal minimum. All wines are given three months between disgorgement and shipping. Each bottle bears its disgorgement date on its back label.
||Ideal as an aperitif before a good meal. Puff pastry, hors d’oeuvres and pork-butchery. Seafood and grilled or steamed fish, roast poultry and white meats
