ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

94 points Tyson Stelzer (The Champagne Guide): "(disgorged November 2017; 52% chardonnay from Trépail and Villers-Marmery, 48% pinot from Mailly, Verzy and Verzenay; 7g/L dosage). The chardonnay of the eastern slopes of the Montagne de Reims in concert with the pinot noir of the north-eastern grand crus unite to compelling effect in the impressive 2012 season. Confident fruit concentration of grapefruit, golden delicious apple and strawberry hull is tensioned with the vibrant acidity of these cool slopes. More than four years on lees has made for a creamy texture and layers of vanilla bean, brioche and freshly churned butter. It concludes with fine, salty minerality and excellent line and length. A well-crafted cuvée that eloquently and consummately articulates the distinctiveness of its terroirs. (2020-2021)"

94 points Wine & Spirits: "[$125 list] Palmer focuses its vintage wine on parcels in the premier and grand cru villages of the Montagne de Reims—the villages where the original founding growers were based. And this wine shows the concentration and supple ripeness of the 2012 harvest. All the fruit sweetness and acidity is integrated into a high-wire act of chalk-dusted tension, lasting on scents of Meyer lemon zest, spicy cider apple and undertones of earthy complexity. It feels complete and well suited to long aging. (Dec 2019)"

93 points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "Disgorged in May 2018 with eight grams per liter dosage, Palmer's newly released 2012 Brut Vintage is showing very well indeed, offering up a deep bouquet of peach, yellow orchard fruit, buttered toast and iodine. Full-bodied, fleshy and vinous, it's a rich and muscular wine, reflecting the concentrated vintage, with racy acids and a classy pinpoint mousse. Drink: 2020-2038. (Sep 2020)"

93 points Wine Spectator: "[$125 list] This expressive Champagne is laced with exotic notes of fresh ginger, jasmine and lime blossom, with a toasty edge of grilled nut to the black cherry and nectarine fruit flavors. Firm and well-knit, offering a lingering finish. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Drink now through 2034. 42 cases imported. (12/15/19)"
