Palmer & Co Vintage 2012, Champagne, Reims
Champagne Palmer & Co Vintage is a subtle association of the memory of an exceptional year in terms of climate and the inimitable Palmer & Co style. The aromas are expressed with intensity in a register of crisp fruit, citrus and light notes of toasted brioche and hazelnut. Ample and sophisticated on the palate, it strikes a fine and perfect balance between power and freshness.

Palmer & Co. have been making noteworthy and elegant Champagne since 1947. They began as seven winegrowers, who came together with a shared vision and passion for making ultra-premium wine; now, they grow grapes over 415 ha of vineyards, of which 200ha encompass 40 crus in the Montage de Reims. The rest of their grapes are grown across the Côte de Sézanne, the Côte des Bar and the Marne Valley, this patchwork of terroirs helping Palmer to achieve wonderful balance.
Expression of a very special art combining technical precision with harmony, the Palmer & Co style is characterised by its elegance and balance. It is expressed fully after a long maturing period in their chalk cellars 18 metres below the ground. Dominated by the freshness and purity of its Chardonnays, the Palmer & Co style is seductive through its precision and clarity. The grace and power of the Pinot Noir, the generosity of the Pinot Meunier and the significant contribution made by reserve wines confer a rich fullness and rare maturity.
