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 its current cellars from a failing 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. A large percentage of Palmer's vineyards are in the Montagne de Reims giving Palmer a unique source of chardonnay in these cooler aspect locations, Blanc de Blancs being one of the stars in the Palmer portfolio. Palmer are one of few producers to ferment large formats, everything bigger than Jeroboam, in the final bottle and up to Nebuchadnezzar, 15 litres, are made in this way.

Palmer ID: L21322| 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 Blanc de Blancs is created from Chardonnay grapes sources mainly from the magnificent terroirs of Villers-Marmery and Trépail. The fruits from these two terriors are blended with Chardonnay from Côte de Sézanne. Although not stated on the label, each Palmer Blanc de Blancs NV released is entirely a vintage with no reserve wines.

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: 90% Premier Cru: Trepail & Villers-Marmery, Montagne de Reims | 10% Autre Cru: Côte de Sézanne
Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay
Vintage: 2012 - This is all from 2012 harvest, Palmer just don't declare the year on the label
Bottling date: 17th May 2013
Disgorged: 6th July 2021
Lees ageing: 11 years
Dosage: 6.9 g/l
Drink: Now for 10+ years

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

Expert Reviews
94 → 95/100
Essi Avellan MW
“Bright lemon colour. Stunningly toasty and charmingly sweetly fruity nose. Such complexity and finesse. On the palate it is polished and creamy with licorice and vanilla layers. Long taste in perfect harmony. Succulently fruity with some evolution but youthful still. A benchmark reductive, toast-enriched blanc de blancs. ”
93/100
Anne Krebiehl MW
“This needs a while to open up, but the rich, biscuity notes are absolutely worth the wait, perfectly tempered by vivd, brisk, pure lemon. The palate has a wonderful directness and a beautiful but sinuous concentration. The mousse is fine and persistent, rounded, fresh and with wonderful verve.”
92/100
William Kelley
“The latest release of Palmer's emblematic NV Blanc de Blancs Brut is showing very well, bursting from the glass with gently reductive aromas of crisp orchard fruit, toasted bread, nectarine and iodine. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and precise, with a pretty core of fruit, bright acids and an attractive pinpoint mousse, it's showing well today but will be even better with a little more bottle age.”
17/20
Tamlyn Currin
“Broad gunpowder-smoke and citrus-cream nose. A serious, competently balanced wine with sweetness that tastes deceptively higher than 6.5 g/l, full-sail fruit ending in a tight draw of sherbet-bright acidity. The Palmer Blanc de Blancs had a good track record of ageing well when it was a vintage wine, and this newer NV version tastes as if it will also take a good 10 years of cellar age.”
