Amazingly rich with delicate bubbles. Full of ripe pear, apple pastry, creme brûlée, toffee, and a touch of cheese rind. The acid is present enough to offset the richness. This is a tête I would buy again!

Tropical fruit and creamy. Mousse like texture. Very delicate, feminine. Beautiful. Aperitif for Kuruoshi Beef/Ch. Trotanoy Dinner @Pignetti's Restaurant, Temple, TX

Another fabulous sparkler tasted at the Champagne Bureau's event in Chicago, the 2002 Nicolas Feuillatte Brut Palmes D'Or is exceptional. Captivating smoky-bordering-on-earthy aromas and flavors are woven throughout, endowing this serious Champagne with a perceptible center of gravity. Mineral verve pierces through intense, fleshy layers of wet dough, bruised pear and and walnut skins. I adore yeast-driven sparklers, and will be very curious to monitor its development over time.

Great nose. Acidity in check. Creaminess on the finish. Would definitely love to drink again.

Love the nose, but palate is a bit bitter, strawberry greens... Some lovely green apple, pear and brioche, but missing that something special.
