Palmes d’Or Champagne is a work of art. This prestige cuvee celebrates a subtle, creamy style, backed by wonderfully nuanced aromas, in perfect unison, note by note. The fruity character has retained just the right balance, a champagne which can easily be enjoyed simply poured or with food.
Palmes d’Or Brut offers endless notes of fine honey, beeswax, dried and tropical fruits, with a subtle touch of brioche. Here the freshness of Chardonnay collides with the complexity and intensity of the Pinot Noir. Over time the Grand Cru grapes begin to dominate the blend, expressing a notable minerality from the Pinot Noir of the Montagne de Reims. The Pinot comes together in perfect harmony with the intensely tropical Chardonnay from Montguex.
1998 was a fantastic year in Champagne and the most enduring from this harvest have retained an elegant freshness amidst the expressive presence of the season. Despite a wet July season, followed by a heatwave in August and then more rainstorms in early September, the Champagne Gods smiled down on us and provided perfect warm, dry conditions for harvest. The best cuvées from 1998, including Palmes d’Or, demonstrate a balanced ripeness, strong acid levels and an unwavering stamina. Like the Billecart-Salmon Cuvée Nicolas François and Taittinger Comtes de Champagne, Nicolas Feuillatte’s Palmes d’Or was a standout for 1998. Released from deep within the Nicolas Feuillatte vault as an impressive back vintage magnum, the incredible ageing prowess of magnums has only elevated an already otherworldly champagne.
Palmes d’Or was created in 1986 by Nicolas Feuillatte as the ultimate expression of his love for a young opera singer. He created this exceptional cuvée in the image of his diva: elegant, sublime and unforgettable. This exceptional, sophisticated champagne is encased in a one- of-a-kind, lustrous gold container, which protects the bottles’ brilliant pearl relief. No other champagne begins to compare with Palmes d’Or champagne. This prestige cuvée expresses the vast diversity of the champagne soils. A powerful Champagne with a complex, distinguished structure. The gorgeous black Palmes d’Or champagne bottles were designed to mirror the magnificent opera singer and replicate her signature black pearls, which she wore at every New York performance.
