Disgorged in June 2020 with eight grams per liter dosage, the latest release of Philipponnat's NV Brut Royale Réserve is based on the 2016 vintage, with 27% reserve wines. Offering up aromas of peach, pear and plum mingled with apple blossom and sweet pastry, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy and expressive, with a pillowy mousse and a generous core of fruit, underpinned by bright acids. William Kelley, Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The NV Brut Royale Réserve is bright and airy in the glass, with lovely orchard fruit and floral character. I would prefer to drink it over the next few years, as it is a bit light. This release is based on 2016, with the addition of 27% reserve wines. Dosage is 8 grams per liter. Disgorged: June, 2020. Antonio Galloni, Vinous
