Nicolas Feuillatte Palmes d'Or Rose Intense 2008

$199.99

Champagne Palmes D’or Rosé Intense 2008 represents the quintessence of Nicolas Feuillatte’s style: a fine texture and delicious flavors. A pure jewel presented in its famous faceted bottle like a gem…

This Cuvée de Prestige is a "Rosé de Saignée" champagne and is the result of short maceration period which brings its intense color. It is exclusively elaborated from Grands Crus Pinot Noirs of the village of Bouzy, and completed with Riceys.

TASTING NOTES

On the eye: The pronounced copper pink appearance, bright, crystal-clear and traced with magnificent cherry-ruby glints, is highly typical of Rosé de Saignée Champagne. Foaming, exceptionally fine effervescence diffuses tiny, light and playful bubbles, which form a persistent pearl column in the glass.

On the nose: Fresh, of great purity and true elegance, the Champagne reveals delicate, intense, precise and beguiling fruit fragrances of wild cherry and blueberry, Bigarreau cherries and blackcurrant, blood orange and dried figs. Enticing, intense and lively notes of sweet spices delicately unfurl, revealing cinnamon, vanilla, cardamom and licorice. The complex aromas underline the power, typical character and harmony achieved in this blend.

On the palate: Smooth and voluptuous, velvety and vinous on the palate, the Palmes d’Or very much echoes the bouquet in its presence and delicious fruity aromas, which begin to develop smooth, enticing, increasingly complex flavors of blueberry jam and crème de cassis. With its powerful, rounded structure and supple texture of great finesse, it is utterly charming. Remarkably full on the finish, exceptionally long and seductive, underpinned by heady, floral notes.
