  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

    ($180-$210) Bright ruby-red. Lovely lift to the aromas of raspberry, Asian spices and flowers. Supple and intensely flavored, with an almost pinot-like silkiness of texture to its red fruit and spice fla vors. Very graceful, lush wine with real depth and brea dth. Finishes subtle, gripping and long.

    An interesting combination of black licorice, light toasty oak and wet earth. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a delicately fruity finish, along with smoky wood. This has a very silky palate, with a lovely texture. Very polished.

    Quite deeply coloured. Very attractive on the nose - pure cassis, that cedary freshness and just a little leafy. Unexpectedly slight on the palate, though they have worked well to keep light structure and fresh fruit in balance. Elegant. (JH)

    Tasted at BI Wine & Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Palmer has an opulent bouquet for the vintage, something almost Mediterranean tincturing the lifted red berry fruit laced with sage and even a suggestion of oregano. The palate is medium-bodied with silky smooth tannin, a fine bead of acidity, gentle and caressing but with a powerful, almost heady finish. If you are looking for an extravagant wine this vintage, then Palmer is the place to come, though maybe it has just dispensed a little of its luster since I last tasted it. Tasted February 2017.

  • Although Palmer stands among ten Third Growth properties located in Margaux, its primary rival for best of appellation comes from the first growth estate Chateau Margaux. Palmer's original name was Chateau de Gascq, but was changed to its owner's namesake after its purchase by General Charles Palmer in 1814. The current owners are the descendants of the Sichel and Mahler-Besse families, who acquired the property in the early 20th century.

    Chateau Palmer is traditionally made with the assemblage containing a higher-than-average percentage of Merlot (up to 40%). The vineyards are situated on gravelly stone over bedrock. Palmer wines are generally rich, supple and a very fruit-forward in character. In addition to its grand vin, Chateau Palmer also produces a second wine called Alter Ego de Palmer, previously known as Reserve de General.
