Champagne Palmer & Co. Brut Reserve
Palmer & Co vineyards are primarily situated in the grands terroirs of the remaining vineyards are within the Côte de Sézanne area, the Côte des Bar and the Marne Valley. Champagne Palmer’s style is defined by elegance and balance. The cuvee is Chardonnay 50-55%, Pinot Noir 30-35% and Pinot Meunier 20-25% with 30-40% reserve wines aged for 3-4 years.
The pale yellow hue showcases streams of ultra-fine bubbles with delicate aromas of freshly baked pastry crust. Granny Smith apples, white peach and honeycomb fill in the mid-palate as it gracefully layers across your palate. It remains well balanced with plenty of freshness and precision until the end. While the house describes their Champagnes as perfection, they go well beyond this type of enjoyment and are very affordable for any occasion.
