CHAMPAGNE BLANC DE BLANCS - PALMER & Co.
Champagne Palmer elaborates from the only white grape-variety, the Chardonnay, a marvelous cuvée of "Blanc de Blancs ", always echoing an exceptional year (always a vintage one). A pure composition in its most expressive style...
This crystalline champagne reveals fine floral aromas (white flowers, honeysuckle) and delicately fruity flavours (citrus fruits, white-flesh fruits, nuances of exotic fruits), of fresh almond, brioche-like and toasted notes or moka hints according to the character of the vintage year.
The long-lasting, fresh and silky mouth develops and stretches on an incomparable finesse with typical mineral notes conferred by the chalky soil.
A cuvée undoubtedly dedicated to the Aperitif time which can be, as well, the prelude of a meal being sea-flavour oriented. It will pair well with oysters dressed in an onion creamy sauce, a pumpkin velouté in an espuma of shrimps, a Carpaccio of fresh scallops, a sea bass filet with a simple drop of olive oil or a cod filet delicately fried in slightly salted butter.

The delicate Chardonnay grapes come from two Grands terroirs giving this champagne an amazing, fine and harmonious expression.
The first big region representing the major part of the cuvee, the villages of Villers-Marmery and Trépail, Premier Crus of the Mountain of Reims are exposed on the eastern slopes on chalky soils.
Villers-Marmery brings its touch of delicacy and floral notes; Trépail gives a stronger note as well as freshness together with an ample touch and a mineral hint according to the plots of land.
The vintage is completed by wines from La Côte de Sézanne which offers a great Chardonnay whose fruity aromas are intense and maturity always well above the average.
