Champagne Palmer & Co
Vintage Collection 1985

Maison Palmer & Co has an impressive collection of old and rare vintages. These precious bottles are stored 'on tip' in the chalky cradle of the 18 metre deep cellars. The very long maturation of these exceptional wines gives them a rare complexity and fullness, while retaining a remarkable freshness.

The vintages in the "Collection" range are released each year in extremely limited quantities, reserved for those who want a tasting that goes beyond Champagne, as the wines are so closely linked to the terroir, to history, to time, to the savoir-faire and inimitable style of the Maison.

The Champagne Palmer & Co Vintage Collection 1985 is the result of a blend of 55% Chardonnay and 45% Pinot Noir grapes mainly harvested from the best Premier and Grand Crus of the Montagne de Reims. The Cuvées were selected by Chef de Cave Xavier Berdin and the Maison's four oenologists for their superior quality and ageing potential. 

The 1985 vintage was marked by terrible winter frosts with -25°C for several days, which led to significant damage in the Champagne vineyards. Vines burst under the effect of this cold and several hundred hectares had to be grubbed up. The spring frost at the end of April greatly increased other damage in some areas. Fortunately, Mother Nature then did her job: wonderful, great weather from the beginning of July allowed a splendid flowering with September enjoying warm, sunny weather.  The harvest was fortunately harvested under perfect conditions from the end of September, with grapes reaching extraordinary ripeness. A splendid late season also allowed for some rare second harvests at the end of October. Due to the harsh winter conditions, average harvests were less than half of those of a normal year. A surprising vintage in many respects that, in terms of elegance and concentration, 1985 is one of the most vibrant years of the second half of the 20th century.

The Champagne Collection Vintage 1985 is superb and offers an excellent balance between fruit and acidity.


Champagne Palmer & Co

The history of Maison Palmer & Co began in 1948, in Avize and led immediately to excellence. In 1959, the Maison bought a new cellar in Reims and by the end of the 70s the maison had grown so much with the acquisition of Chardonnay vineyards in Côte de Sézanne and of Pinot Noir in Aube. Today the Maison can count on 390 hectares spread throughout the Champagne region, where more than a half are classified as Grand and Premier Cru. The strength relies not only in the vineyards, but also in "vin de reserve" from the great vintages of the past, that enable the Maison to maintain it high quality standard. The long resting period on yeasts, then, grants Palmer & Co incredible fineness, elegance and complexity.
