  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 98

    The 2017 Palmer, a blend of 54% Merlot with 42% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot, is very deep purple-black in color and leaps from the glass with freshly macerated blue and black fruits: wild blueberries, blackberries and black cherries plus hints of licorice, rose hips, tilled soil and oolong tea with a waft of truffles. Medium-bodied, very finely crafted with exquisitely ripe and smooth yet firm tannins and sporting great mid-palate intensity and wonderful freshness, it finishes long and minerally.

    This is a sexy and well-formed 2017 with very velvety and suave tannins that go on for minutes. Full-bodied, soft and round. Extremely long and last for minutes.

  • 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.
