Palmes d’Or Brut 2006

An even blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and aged for a minimum of nine years on the lees, Palmes d’Or Brut 2006 ($153) possesses a gentle mixture of herbs and dried flowers, with a crisp pinch of lemon zest in the finish. This dry Champagne pairs especially well with shellfish, scallops, and creamy desserts.
