(NV Vintage) Palmes d’Or Brut offers endless notes of fine honey, bee’s wax, dried fruits and tropical fruits, together with a subtle, nuanced touch of toast. Here the worlds of sensual pleasure and complexity collide, embodied in the intensity of pinot noir and unctuous chardonnay style, the result of a hot, generous year of great ripeness.
International Wine CellarPale fresh color. Aromas of baked bread, cooked apple, coffee and earthy low tones; could be fresher. Medium-bodied and a bit earthy in the mouth; round and accessible but lacks the extract and flavor depth of the vintage better examples. Thins out a bit on the finish.
