GOLD MEDAL & TROPHY - CHAMPION CHAMPAGNE NZ International Wine Show 2022
Palmer Brut Reserve is based on a selection of wines from the best vineyards in the Champagne region. The Premiers and Grands Crus from the Montagne de Reims area predominate and lend their distinctive personality to these wines.
The nose, amazingly clean, is expressed through a rich palette of aromas, including citrus, pear and apricot with some subtle notes of hazelnut and a discreet touch of buttery brioche.
Succulent and substantial to the palate, yet with an unfettered freshness, this wine is eminently seductive: a model of perfect balance.
Palmer non-vintage champagnes contain a high percent of reserve wines; each spring they blend their non-vintage with about 65% of the wine from the previous harvest and 35% coming from their reserve wines. Each spring when Palmer blend their NV, part of that year's new blend is kept back as still wine for the reserve program.
