Champagne Brut Grand Cru 'Royal' Pommery 2008

Champagne Brut Grand Cru "Royal" of the historic French winery Pommery is a vintage in which freshness, maturity and elegance come together. The Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes come from a careful selection of the best 7 Grand Cru of the Côte des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims and mature on the lees for more than 10 years. The glass is filled with a golden yellow colour with luminous reflections and on the nose emerge hints of white flowers, sweet spices and pastry memories. The taste is enveloping, intense, mineral, with notes of acacia honey and wild strawberries
