N/V Pommery Champagne Brut Royal
I picked up a half bottle of this for $15.
I don’t get much on the nose other than some white bread.
Some lime and minerals on the palate. A bit more citrus...I’m thinking zests, orange and lemon...maybe some Granny Smith. I enjoy the mouthfeel of this one, the bubbles are tiny and foam up in the mouth nicely. This one has a bit of yeast, but none of the toasty flavors that make some Champagne so interesting.
The finish lasts for quite a while....mostly with lime and minerals.
Strongly recommended. Note: this is different than the Pommery Pop, available in 187 ml bottle with a straw. I believe the Pop is Extra Dry, this one is Brut.
