Despite this being labelled as 'non-vintage' all of the fruit for this was sourced from the excellent 1996 vintage. There is a very small amount of reserves in this which is why they had to label it NV. You have just come across a very exciting find!
"Champagne Palmer & Co. Vintage Brut 1996, Jéroboam (aged in Palmer’s cellars for more than 20 years; not available at retail). As a treat, because Champagne Palmer was being newly introduced to New York City by Constellation Brands, I tasted its 1996 from Jéroboam (double magnum). After tasting all of the other very young Palmer Champagnes, the 1996 was a hedonistic pleasure to drink. This 1996, a great vintage, has entered its mature phase, drinking very well after 22 years, but should stay on this plateau for another five to ten years. It has secondary aromas and flavors of honey and dried red and black berries. I had expected that the 1996, especially from a Jeroboam, might be too young, but it was virtually perfect and scored 97". - Ed McCarthy | Wine Journalist & Educator.
