Nicolas Feuillatte Palmes d'Or Champagne Brut 2008
“Palmes d’Or; Champagne as a work of art.” A champagne for those seeking the finer things in life, this prestige cuvée celebrates a subtle, creamy style, backed by wonderfully nuanced aromas, in perfect unison, note by note.
A Champagne to enjoy simply poured or with food, whose fruity character, faded over time, has retained just the right balance, and is developing the first signs of bottle development. 2006 Palmes d’Or Brut offers endless notes of fine honey, bee’s wax, dried fruits and tropical fruits, together with a subtle, nuanced touch of toast. Here the worlds of sensual pleasure and complexity collide, embodied in the intensity of Pinot Noir and unctuous Chardonnay style, the result of a hot, generous year of great ripeness. Over time the grand cru wines dominating the blend express minerality, notably the pinot noir from Montagne de Reims, and come together in a burst of harmony, merging with the intensely tropical Chardonnay from Montgueux.
