Winemaker Notes

Citrus, pear, and apricot aromas with discrete notes of hazelnut and buttery brioche. Succulent and substantial with an unfettered freshness. The model of balance.

Their flagship wine, crafted from a selection of the most prestigious terroirs in Champagne and distinguished by its elegance and finesse—the timeless signature of the Palmer style. A significant proportion of réserve wines contributes a rare fullness and maturity.

TP 93
Tasting Panel

Stylish and elegant, with juicy acidity and bright fruit. Charming, fresh, and immediate, this bubbly has length, finesse, and lovely layers of complexity.

JS 92
James Suckling

Pie crust and cooked apple with candied lemon and dried pear on the nose. Full-bodied with a creamy texture and layers of subtle fruit. Solid, yet agile. Mineral tint to this. Oyster shell, too. Fine bubbles.

COMMENTARY: The Champagne Palmer & Co. Brut Reserve is complex yet stays elegant and refined from start to finish. TASTING NOTES: This wine offers aromas and flavors of tart citrus, hints of marzipan, apples, and dried apricots. Try it with pan-fried, panko-coated Petrale sole.

Champagne Palmer, France
Champagne Palmer Winery Image
Champagne Palmer & Co. was established in 1947 by seven grower-families with Premier Cru and Grand Cru vineyards in the Montagne de Reims region of Champagne. Winemaking at Palmer is a highly collaborative affair: Cellar Master Xavier Berdin and a team of four oenologists taste over 200 distinct lots. The team must reach full consensus before any blend is finalized. Unequaled access to top Grand Cru and Premier Cru vineyards, the predominance of Chardonnay in its blends, extensive use of the cuvée (first press juice), and a distinct reliance on réserve wines are what make the Palmer signature style—balance and elegance—stand out.

Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, the region, Champagne, is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to bear the label, ‘Champagne’, a sparkling wine must originate from this northeastern region of France—called Champagne—and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide.

Well-drained, limestone and chalky soil defines much of the region, which lend a mineral component to its wines. Champagne’s cold, continental climate promotes ample acidity in its grapes but weather differences from year to year can create significant variation between vintages. While vintage Champagnes are produced in exceptional years, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years in order to produce Champagnes that maintain a consistent house style.

With nearly negligible exceptions, . These can be blended together or bottled as individual varietal Champagnes, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, elegance, lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier, provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while ones comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’

A term typically reserved for Champagne and Sparkling Wines, non-vintage or simply “NV” on a label indicates a blend of finished wines from different vintages (years of harvest). To make non-vintage Champagne, typically the current year’s harvest (in other words, the current vintage) forms the base of the blend. Finished wines from previous years, called “vins de reserve” are blended in at approximately 10-50% of the total volume in order to achieve the flavor, complexity, body and acidity for the desired house style. A tiny proportion of Champagnes are made from a single vintage.

There are also some very large production still wines that may not claim one particular vintage. This would be at the discretion of the winemaker’s goals for character of the final wine.
