“Palmes d’Or; Champagne as a work of art.” A champagne for those seeking the finer things in life, this prestige cuvée celebrates a subtle, creamy style, backed by wonderfully nuanced aromas, in perfect unison, note by note. A Champagne to enjoy simply poured or with food, whose fruity character, faded over time, has retained just the right balance, and is developing the first signs of bottle development. 2006 Palmes d’Or Brut offers endless notes of fine honey, bee’s wax, dried fruits and tropical fruits, together with a subtle, nuanced touch of toast. Here the worlds of sensual pleasure and complexity collide, embodied in the intensity of pinot noir and unctuous chardonnay style, the result of a hot, generous year of great ripeness. Over time the grand cru wines dominating the blend express minerality, notably the pinot noir from Montagne de Reims, and come together in a burst of harmony, merging with the intensely tropical chardonnay from Montgueux.
A blend of pinot noir and chardonnay in equal measure, the 2006 Palmes d’Or Brut is fleshy and complex. The blend champions a selection of grand cru sites from Montagne de Reims, including Verzy, Verzenay, Ambonnay, Bouzy and Aÿ, and from the Côte des Blancs, Chouilly, Cramant, Avize, Oger and Le Mesnil-surOger. The latter reveal a tempestuous edge which has mellowed in unison over time, bound in perfect harmony with the addition of the tropical chardonnays from Montgueux which constitute 7% of the blend.
2006 is one of three great vintages of the decade. Having coped well with a cold and dry winter, the vines saw abundant flowering from spring onwards, resulting in strong fruit set, generally favoured by dry, warm weather. This was followed by July’s dry, heatwave conditions, while temperatures in August were unseasonably low, with record rainfall. September saw a fortuitous turn in conditions, with fine weather promoting good ripening in the grapes, and growers harvesting very ripe fruit. Vinifications proceeded well, revealing all the essential qualities for the Champagne to evolve well: good sugar/acidity ratios, promising potential alcohol and lovely body. 2006 is a powerful, remarkably wellbalanced vintage of great harmony; exquisite body on the palate reveals maturity while a seam of freshness supports the wines’ aromatic qualities.
The Champagne House of Nicolas Fyuyat, founded in 1976, in a short time managed not only to overtake many eminent manufacturers with a long history, but also to occupy a place in the top five largest Champagne Houses. In 1986, the company entered into an alliance with the association of elite vineyards \"Center Vinicolet de la Champagne\" in order to promote Nicolas Feuillatte champagne. Today, Champagne House brings together more than a thousand winegrowers and 86 wineries. Joint ownership covers an area of 2 thousand hectares of vineyards, which is 7% of the territory of the Champagne appellation. Champagne under the label \"Nicolas Feuillatte\" is made from grapes grown in 10 vineyards of the Grand Cru category and 27 vineyards of Premiers Crus in various regions of Montagne de Reims, Côtes de Blancs, L\'Ardre, Wesle, Cezanne, in the Marne Valley. The success in obtaining great champagne depends on the quality of the yeast used, so the Champagne House Nicolas Feuillatte derived his own yeast culture in his laboratory. Annual sales of the Nicolas Feuillatte House are about 7 million bottles per year, 50% of which are exported to more than 50 countries
