A nose in the purest Palmer & Company style, with fruity notes of candied lemon and dried fruit, toasted pine nuts. and caramelized hazelnuts, which evolves towards honeyed and slightly spicy notes of candied ginger and pastries. The palate is both delicate and generous, marked by its saline minerality and charming citrus aromas (lemon pie, pomelo, yuzu). Its silky texture completes a superb balance between generosity and tension. A great vintage that leaves a lasting impression with its amplitude and incredible balance. A jewel of the Palmer & Company style.
The 2012 vintage was almost miraculous considering the challenging climactic conditions observed at the beginning of the vegetative cycle. A cold winter, a rainy spring, and a cool and wet beginning of summer. Thanks to the sunshine and warmth of August, the Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays from the Montagne de Reims finally excelled, giving beautifully balanced wines of incomparable finesse.
