A champagne of unique character, combining exceptional fruitiness and delicate notes of spice. This outstanding blend is enriched by a unique Solera of Pinot Noir, a perpetual reserve of several decades, reflecting the House’s celebrated expertise. 3 years aging on lees (bottle) or 4 years (magnum).
Crafted from a selection of the most prestigious terroirs in Champagne, the Premier and Grand Crus from the Montagne de Reims predominate, leaving their distinctive marks. The Montagne de Reims is a vast plateau covered in forest, extending between the cities of Reims and Epernay. Vineyards have been planted in the chalky soils of the mountain’s slopes. The region has the most villages classified as “Grand Cru”. Most of the Palmer vineyards are located on the north-facing (the Grand Crus of Mailly and Versenay) and north-eastern slopes (the premier Crus of Trepail and Villers Marmery) of the Montagne de Reims, where the environment is rigorous and climates are extreme. The Montagne de Reims is the kingdom of the great Pinot Noirs, a vigorous and generous grape variety that adapts extremely well to the chalky soils. However, there are little islands of exceptional Chardonnay in this ocean of Pinot Noirs. These are located on the eastern slopes, well-sheltered from the western winds. These are the Premier Crus of Trepail and Villers-Marmery, two jewel villages that have given birth to superb Chardonnays appreciated for their concentration and structure.
Serve chilled. Excellent as an aperitif. Paris well with finely sliced Bellota ham, smoked salmon, chicken and spring vegetable samosas, grilled red mullet, assorted cheese and red berry fruit zabaglione.
