The Brut Reserve of Champagne Palmer is made up of about 50% of Chardonnay, 40% of Pinot Noir and 10% of Pinot Meunier.
The taste of the Brut Cuvée depends not only on grape varieties coming from 40 different crus; they also result from the wine making and the ages of the wines which compose the cuvée. The grape harvest provides the main note, and is embellished by the addition of Reserve Wines which give a rare fullness and maturity.
Champagne Palmer has evolved considerably over the past half century from its roots in Avize. It is now one of the most succesful Co-operative houses, based in the centre of Reims. With over 300 hectares of vines, 180 of which are rated Grands Crus, they have an enviable array of quality Chardonnay(50%) & Pinot Noir(40%) with which to blend their beautiful wines. The Blancs de Blancs exemplifies the overall quality of this Domaine.
To the eye, it offers a beautiful and bright straw-yellow color; the bubbles are abundant and persistent.
On the nose, the aromas are clear and cut; they develop a rich and wide aromatic palette, aromas of white fruits (pear), apple (cooked), freshly picked fruits (apricot), with subtle notes of honey, fresh coffee, dried fruits (grilled hazelnuts, dried currants) and a discreet buttered touch evoking croissants and pastries.
On the palate, this champagne is ample, round and fleshy; it offers the same intense sensations of fruit already present on the nose evolving towards in a more ‘compoté’ note. The finish is long lasting, harmonious and structured, ending with a beautiful freshness.
