A nose in the purest Palmer & Company style, with fruity notes of candied lemon and dried fruit, toasted pine nuts. and caramelized hazelnuts, which evolves towards honeyed and slightly spicy notes of candied ginger and pastries. The palate is both delicate and generous, marked by its saline minerality and charming citrus aromas (lemon pie, pomelo, yuzu). Its silky texture completes a superb balance between generosity and tension. A great vintage that leaves a lasting impression with its amplitude and incredible balance. A jewel of the Palmer & Company style.

The 2012 vintage was almost miraculous considering the challenging climactic conditions observed at the beginning of the vegetative cycle. A cold winter, a rainy spring, and a cool and wet beginning of summer. Thanks to the sunshine and warmth of August, the Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays from the Montagne de Reims finally excelled, giving beautifully balanced wines of incomparable finesse.

A historic and emblematic signature of Palmer & Company,
each Grands Terroirs cuvee expresses the quintessence of
the winery’s Premier and Grand Cru vineyards of the
Montagne de Reims (Mailly; Verzenay; Trepail; Villers
Marmery; Ludes; Chigny-les-Roses; Rilly-la-Montagne) in
an exceptional vintage. The Montagne de Reims is a vast
plateau covered in forest, extending between the cities of
Reims and Epernay. Vineyards have been planted in the
chalky soils of the mountain’s slopes. The region has the
most villages classified as “Grand Cru”. The Montagne de
Reims is the kingdom of the great Pinot Noirs, a vigorous
and generous grape variety that adapts extremely well to
the chalky soils. However, there are little islands of
exceptional Chardonnay in this ocean of Pinot Noirs.
These are located on the eastern slopes, well-sheltered
from the western winds. These are the Premier Crus of
Trepail and Villers-Marmery, two jewel villages that have
given birth to superb Chardonnays appreciated for their
concentration and structure.
