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: L19070C | 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. The current release is vintage 2014.

Weather: 2014 was characterised by mild temperatures and frequent rainfall and a few weeks of high temperatures, a very solid vintage with good ripeness and acidity. Flowering began in June and summer was a combination of dry, wet and cold spells. Some regions saw some disease and Meunier in the Marne Valley didn’t have a great year and some of the Pinot Noir with its thinner skin made it more difficult for the red grapes. Harvest took place from 8th to 20th September. A year where it was necessary to select the red grapes carefully to maintain high quality. In general Chardonnay is the star of the vintage.

Expert Reviews

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. ”
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.”
16+/20
Jancis Robinson MW
“100% 2013 vintage. L18135C. Tasted in bottle.
Deep straw. Rich nose, and rich palate with some sherbet qualities. Quite tight on the end. Lots of undertow. Chewy end, very racy.”
92/100
Peter Moser
“Light golden yellow, silver reflections; fine, persistent mousse. Delicately nutty, hints of blood orange and white peach underlaid with a smoky minerality. Medium-bodied, taut, fresh apple, lively structure, mineral finish. A versatile food wine with ageing potential. (Lot L20028C).”
