Palmes d'Or Brut Vintage encompasses all of the elegance and finesse of Chardonnay combined with the full body of Pinot Noir. Always a vintage, only exceptional harvests are deemed worthy of being part of its composition. Appearance: Pronounced golden yellow, clear and bright. Delicate gossamer bubbles softly crackle; lively, majestic sustained mousse. Nose: Primary fruit aromas of white pear and peach and walnut and apricot dried fruit notes. More intense secondary aromas reveal spicy notes of pepper and ginger and red fruits subtly interweaving with the primary aromas. Palate: Clean and direct on the attack, delicate bubbles reveal magnificent mineral quality. Great structure on the palate, incredibly long on the finish and unforgettable elegance.

Wine SpectatorRefined and focused, this sleek version offers ripe flavors of poached apple, ground anise, almond financier, cassis and candied lemon zest, carried by the fine, silky finish to a lightly smoky finish. Drink now through 2025.

Wine EnthusiastSoft and rounded with ripe apple and pear flavors, this wine expresses the richness of the vintage. Hints of toast and cookie are changing the fruit character, making this a wine that's ready to drink while still fresh, yet starting to show good aging as well.
