Champagne Palmer & Co Nectar Reserve NV, Champagne, Reims, France
Champagne Palmer Nectar Reserve reconnects with the tradition of the great dessert wines. The ample and creamy palate is underpinned by an elegant acidity that gives a character to the whole which is both sapid and fresh. A true explosion of fruity notes: apricot, pear and some tropical touches of mango and caramelised pineapple subtly enhanced by a citrusy touch of pink grapefruit.
Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir
Palmer & Co. have been making noteworthy and elegant Champagne since 1947. They began as seven winegrowers, who came together with a shared vision and passion for making ultra-premium wine; now, they grow grapes over 415 ha of vineyards, of which 200ha encompass 40 crus in the Montage de Reims. The rest of their grapes are grown across the Côte de Sézanne, the Côte des Bar and the Marne Valley, this patchwork of terroirs helping Palmer to achieve wonderful balance.
Expression of a very special art combining technical precision with harmony, the Palmer & Co style is characterised by its elegance and balance. It is expressed fully after a long maturing period in their chalk cellars 18 metres below the ground. Dominated by the freshness and purity of its Chardonnays, the Palmer & Co style is seductive through its precision and clarity. The grace and power of the Pinot Noir, the generosity of the Pinot Meunier and the significant contribution made by reserve wines confer a rich fullness and rare maturity.
