La Borderie began as a small champagne producer in 2013 when Simon and his sister Marie Normand took over the family vineyards deciding to stop selling their grapes and create their own champagne label. Winemaker Simon makes champagne with fruit expression and purity, all small lots with great vineyard character and low dosage.
Located nearer Burgundy than Reims they benefit from slightly warmer climate than most of Champagne and Pinot Noir thrives here.
A feisty, pure and linear Pinot Noir from the steep north-facing slope bearing the interesting name De Quoi Te Meles Tu that translates to "This is none of your business." ... How the current landowner responded to his neighbours in the 1980's who at the time were ridiculing his choice of planting Pinot Noir on a north-facing clay terroir. Truly unique and irresistibly invigorating style for a Blanc de Noirs. A true visionary, not appreciated at the time!

Visits to Champagne Palmer & Co are often full of surprises & today is no different! They do #Chardonnay supremely well.
2022 harvest summary by chef de cave #XavierBerdin ripeness was good, no disease pressure, some maturation issues meant waiting for Chardonnay to gain phenolic ripeness. MLF done.
Most vineyards at Palmer are in the Montagne de Reims, a significant amount on the northerly & east facing aspects like Villers-Marmery for #Chardonnay & #PinotNoir Mailly & Verzenay north facing side of MdR.
Xavier said 2022 still wine blends proved tough, tasting committee made his job hard!

Tight aromatics, 2013’s have tension, slow ageing characteristics. Palate is giving more development, richness of fruit, tension from the acidity and softening from the lees aging. Hints starting of that creamy charm when CH ages. Will mature decades.

2012 joyful fruit, smoky reductive charm. Texture wraps around tongue, its exciting when champagne is like this, richness, lightness, zippiness, rich chardonnay fruit just giving a hint of dried mango. Utterly delicious.
BdB 1985 1.5L D: June 2021 Dosage: 5.6 g/l - 19/20
Lightly reductive, hints of Alsace, intensity of dried fruits, going white chocolate, truffle, roasted pineapple, dark marmalade, roasted cashews. Complex, soft creamy texture, spicy mango, hints of coffee. Wonderfully fresh.

Quite different to the BdB, more dark & red fruit here, chocolate, coffee, earl grey tea. Palate is tingly fresh. Stunning mag with dried plum, fantastic length.
