TASTING NOTES: 2006 Palmes d’Or Rosé is a fine Champagne requiring serious contemplation that typifies pinot noir to perfection. Carried by the intensity of the vintage, rich and mature, it is juicy and consistent amid its full-bodied structure. The “saignée” method, imparting lovely colour from the black grape skins, brings enviable complexity and a wonderfully rich palate of red fruit flavours. The 2006 vintage, to which the Champagne owes its sumptuous style, also contributes appealing plumpness to the wine. On the palate, ripe fruit and stone fruit flavours intertwine with a hint of warm forest floor and sweet spice. This subtle, sensual, prestigious Champagne stands as an exemplar of the perfect balance of powerful pinot noir fruit from Bouzy and its subtly perfumed Ricey counterparts. Ideal for accompanying fine food and entertaining, this generous, utterly charming Rosé is best shared with an intimate circle of friends. It would make a heavenly digestive to end a meal in style.
