Description & Technical Information
-
Palmer & Co is one of the only Houses to make its champagne to the highest standards, without transferring, in large bottle sizes up to the monumental 15-litre Nebuchadnezzar. Kept in our cellars for an exceptional long time, these legendary bottles sublimate our champagne and become authentic masterpieces that are ideal for celebrating the greatest moments of life. The Palmer large formats, so Jeroboam, Methuselah and Nebuchadnezzar are all labelled with their NV packaging, though they are all from a single vintage as shown below:

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Premier & Grand Crus | CH Trepail & Villers-Marmery PN Verzenay & Mailly
Grape Varieties: 50% Chardonnay, 50% Pinot Noir
Vintage: 1996
Lees ageing: 21 years
Disgorged: Spring 2018
Dosage: 8 g/l
Drink: Now to 2030+

Tasting Note: Subtle notes of white flowers and citrus, combine with almonds to create an abundance of flavours on the palate. The silky and refreshing palate has a fresh acidity and great finesse on the finish. This old vintage is now very graceful, the long lees ageing and large bottle size give that attractive smoky character with an abundance of lime and lemon richness with great length

Expert Reviews
16/20
Tamlyn Currin
“50–55% Chardonnay, 35–40% Pinot Noir, 10–15% Pinot Meunier. 25–35% reserve wines. Bottles spend three to four years on lees, magnums five to six years. Dosage 8 g/l. Date on label suggests it may have been disgorged 8 May 2017.
Mid lemon colour. Lemon-brioche nose. Much more low-key fizz than the Rosé. Just a suggestion of bubbles, despite a huge froth-up when the wine was poured. Chalky, chewy, lemon-zested palate. Spiky and angled – makes you hungry just to sip it. Proper appetite whetter. Bring on the oysters! (Or fish and chips…?) (TC)”
