Champagne Palmer & Co Overview
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 weather in 2008 began unremarkably with a mild winter, plenty of rain and patches of frost. The early summer spells were relatively cold which delayed flowering. However, prolonged August sunshine saw long, hot days combine with cooler nights to produce grapes of perfect acidity and ripeness. A harvest that is only just emerging on the market but is already being compared to 2002, this is sure to be one of the vintages of the decade.

News Article: Palmer & Co Brut Millésime 2008 placed ninth in our blind tasting comparison of 2008s and 2002s in June 2017. Read the full write-up here.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand & Premier Cru | Montagne de Reims
Grape Varieties: 50% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir, 10% Pinot Meunier
Ageing: 6-8 years on the lees
Dosage: 8-9 g/l
Drink: Now to 2028

Tasting Note: A bright yellow colour with aromas of ripe citrus and peaches. There is an underlying nuttiness that is evident on the palate. A vibrant and acidic mouth-feel is balanced with ripe fruits and a slightly creamy texture. The layers of complexity last throughout the long lingering finish. A great example of this fantastic vintage.

“Very light nose and bone dry and racy. Quite an elegant style. Good balance and just about ready.”

“Generous but refined, deep, fruity nose of beautiful toasty character. Plenty of bright succulent fruit. Round, fleshy, smooth muscular palate with good tension. Fine fruity length. Plenty of potential here.”

“Exclusively made up of premiers and grands crus from the Montagne de Reims area. 50% Chardonnay premiers crus (Trepail and Villers-Marmery), 40% Pinot Noir grand crus (Verzy, Verzenay, Mailly) and 10% Pinot Meunier. Lees ageing for 7.5 years. Disgorged August 2016. Dosage 8 g/l.
Tasted blind. Richer, more concentrated nose [than the 2009 tasted alongside]. Broad and substantial – quite savoury. Even a little cheesy. Lots of acidity.
Drink 2017-2023”
