Michel Loriot "Palmyre" Brut Nature Champagne

SKU #1145581

This cuvee was blended specifically to be a zero dosage (no sugar added) Champagne and is composed of 80% Meunier and 20% Chardonnay exclusively from the Loriot estate in the village of Festigny. It has been aged for four years on the lees, and this, in combination with the riper fruit used in the blend, gives it an ease of drinking not usually associated with zero dosage Champagnes.

This lovely Extra Brut is not your typical animal. It is dosaged at the highest point to be labeled Extra Brut, 6 grams per liter. So, this is a richer style of Extra Brut with bright pear and lemon flavors and a very clean, moderately acidic vintage. This is a great bridge between Brut and those teeth-chattering, no-dosage Brut Nature Champagnes.

Raise your hand if you loved the Michel Loriot Extra Brut with the blue label! M. Loriot has revamped the look of his wines- the Palmyre is the Extra Brut you know and love! New labels include a disgorgement date, specific cepages, and QR code for scanning to learn more about his wines. That fabulous transparency aside, this wine continues to be a strong, delicoius, and nuanced. The disgorgement date of 8/2013 on this bottling is lovely- bright and lively, white flowers, citrus, mineral with a fine mousse and refreshing acidity. This continues to be one of my favorite (and my Mom's favorite!) Champagnes from the house of Loriot. Bravo!

Out here on the West Coast, we celebrate winter with Dungeness crab, and the best thing that I tasted on my last trip to Champagne for any shellfish was the brand new Michel Loriot "Palmyre" Brut Nature Champagne. I can’t wait to get one iced down and on the table with the crustacean. With crab, scallops, mussels, clams or oysters this lovely bottle richens up, all the while cutting the richness of the meat. Open crab season, open, open!

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose. View our bestselling Champagne.
