Brut Réserve
Tasting Food and drink harmonies In details
Iridescent golden yellow tones, full, fruity nose, clean palate. A very come-hither Champagne: racy, elegant and deeply sensual, with beguiling bubbles that literally burst with luscious fruit. Mouth-watering hints of lightly toasted, freshly buttered bread make this the ideal Champagne to get the juices, and the conversation, flowing.
Mailly Brut Reserve is the perfect aperitif – a must for a celebratory Champagne lunch or romantic champagne dinner. Also a very good choice for a cocktail dinner party. This is a champagne made for convivial get-togethers, a particular favourite with pike-perch on a bed of leeks, chicken supreme, creamy Chaource cheese or apple pie and ice-cream.
