While Originlly classified as a Third Growth in 1855, Château Palmer has rightfully earned a reputation for tasting and being priced as a Second Growth (some even compare it to a First Growth). In the 1960s, when the famed Château Margaux was unfortunately mismanaged, Château Palmer was considered the epitome of the Margaux appellation.  When one first visits the property, it takes just a few minutes for one to gain the insight that Château Palmer is located a stone's throw away (literally) from Château Margaux, thus sharing the same terroir.  The owners and winemakers at Château Palmer have not wasted this natural endowment.  Many decades (some say over a century) of consistent efforts by generations of caretakers of Château Palmer have created a delightful, silky wine that will please the palate of the most critical consumers.

Tasting Notes

"Bottled relatively late in mid-September 2017, the 2015 Palmer is a blend of 44% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon with a small portion of Petit Verdot. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it offers vibrant red currants, black cherries, wild blueberries, earth and mineral characteristics to begin, with slowly unfurling floral notes of violets and dried roses plus compelling baker’s chocolate and fragrant earth layers. Medium to full-bodied, generously fruited and possessing firm yet very, very fine-grained, mind-blowingly ripe tannins, the multifaceted palate features something of a skip in its step in terms of freshness, while it goes beguilingly earthy on the finish with some mineral hints. Very classy, elegant and sophisticated, this vintage is downright regal in its juxtaposition between poise and audaciousness. Think 2005 Palmer with a tick more fruit intensity, perfume and passion." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2/21/2018, Interim Issue), Ratings: 98, Drink:2025-2050
