In 1947, seven well-established and visionary winegrowers came together in a joint quest for ultimate perfection and founded Champagne Palmer & Co. The founders bought its current cellars from a failing Champagne House in Reims in 1959. Over the years, the cooperative has spread past Reims and now owns an impressive 450 hectares of vineyards, over 200 of which are classified Grand and Premier Crus. A large percentage of Palmer's vineyards are in the Montagne de Reims giving Palmer a unique source of chardonnay in these cooler aspect locations, Blanc de Blancs being one of the stars in the Palmer portfolio. Palmer are one of few producers to ferment large formats, everything bigger than Jeroboam, in the final bottle and up to Nebuchadnezzar, 15 litres, are made in this way.

Palmer ID: | Each bottle of Palmer & Co can be identified by the ID on the back label. This enables you to discover the story of that very bottle. You can do so using the smartphone App or on the Palmer & Co website.

Grands Terroirs is a combination of the prestigious Premiers and Grands Crus vineyards of the Montagne de Reims and the remarkable savoir-faire of Palmer & Co, in a year of extraordinary weather conditions. The Montagne de Reims is a vast plateau covered in forest between the cities of Reims and Epernay. Vineyards have been planted in the chalky soils of the mountain's slopes. This region has the most villages classified as 'Grands Crus'. Most of the Palmer & Co vineyards are located on the north-facing slopes (the Grands Crus of Mailly and Verzenay) and the north-eastern slopes (Premier Crus of Trépail and Villers-Marmery) of the Montagne de Reims, where the environment is rigorous and climates are extreme. The grapes harvested from these 'Grands Terroirs' are known for their power, structure and nobility.

Weather: 2003 was a very unusual year: a dry winter and spring with two severe frosts, an early flowering, and a heatwave in the summer. The care lavished on the pressing was, even more so than in a typical year, a deciding factor in achieving quality wines. During a hot year the northern facing vineyards experience cooler temperatures than south facing, this was very important in 2003 because the vintage as a whole experienced a lot of over ripeness. Grand Terroirs 2003 flaunts an astonishing intensity and finesse.
