Description & Technical Information
In 1947, seven well-established and visionary winegrowers came together in a joint quest for ultimate perfection and founded Champagne Palmer & Co. The founders bought the cellars of a Champagne House in Reims in 1959. Over the years, the cooperative has spread past Reims and now owns an impressive 450 hectares of vineyards, over 200 of which are classified Grand and Premier Crus.

Palmer ID: L19097C | Each bottle of Palmer & Co can be identified by the ID on the back label. This enables you to discover the story of that very bottle. You can do so using the smartphone App or on the Palmer & Co website.

Palmer & Co's vintage is always a subtle association of a particular climatic year and the Palmer style. Consisting exclusively of Grand and Premier Crus from the Montagne de Reims area, this champagne of rare complexity also has the typical charming elegance of Palmer & Co.

Weather: The 2012 weather has been hallmarked by many as very challenging but has created some stunning Champagne. Relatively low yields due to various weather conditions throughout the year. The winter months brought some frosts and hail which damaged the early stages of bud burst. August and September were mostly dry very warm and this helped rescue and give the grapes a stunning maturity.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand & Premier Cru from Montagne de Reims - Pinot Noir: Mailly & Verzenay | Chardonnay: Trepail & Villers Marmery
Grape Varieties: 50% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir & 5% Meunier
Ageing: 5 years on the lees
Disgorged: 9th May 2018
Dosage: 7 g/l
Drink: Now to 2029

Tasting Note:On the nose, lots of ripe orchard fruits and citrus tones with hints of tropical fruit. The long lees ageing gives a round and full mid palate with a chalky texture, lots of citrus and peach and pineapple and hints of red berries. Fresh and surprisingly forward like most of the 2012's
Champagne Palmer & Co Overview
Expert Reviews
William Kelley
“Palmer's 2012 Brut Vintage continues to show beautifully, wafting from the glass with notes of citrus oil, buttered toast, smoke and crisp green orchard fruit. Medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with a tightly wound core, tangy acids and a pretty pinpoint mousse, it's long and penetrating, concluding with a chalky finish. This is evolving very gracefully and will be even better with more time in the cellar: it's one of the finest vintage releases I've tasted from this address.”

“Tasted blind. Light coppery gold colour. Very persistent bead. Smells sweet, almost candified. But this is very nicely balanced by citrus acidity. Reminds me of Dom Pérignon! Lightly reductive and rather beautifully balanced.”

“Medium lemon colour. Sophisticated nose with creamy-toasty complexity. Rich and expressive with lovely gunpowdery whiffs. Round palate with dried fruit profile getting emphasised. There is volume and freshness on the sweetly fruity, instantly impressive palate. Long, fruity, sweet finish. ”
William Kelley
“Disgorged in May 2018 with eight grams per liter dosage, Palmer's newly released 2012 Brut Vintage is showing very well indeed, offering up a deep bouquet of peach, yellow orchard fruit, buttered toast and iodine. Full-bodied, fleshy and vinous, it's a rich and muscular wine, reflecting the concentrated vintage, with racy acids and a classy pinpoint mousse. Drink 2020 - 2038”
Jancis Robinson MW
“Small crop. Dosage 7 g/l Lively mousse. Creamy nose, almost lactic. The Palmer CEO suggests pear. Transparent and very racy. Excellent attack. Still quite youthful but already approachable. A rather charming, easy drink. I could drink this all afternoon. Very friendly now.”
