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.
All vintage 2016 “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
All Vintage 2014 “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.”
