4 /5

Château Palmer is one of the finest chateaux in France, and hails from Margaux on the Left Bank in Bordeaux.

Château Palmer now adopts 100% biodynamic practices across the property and is considered highly as a true 'super second' alongside Las Cases, Cos D'Estournel, Ducru Beaucaillou and Pichon Lalande.

There is no doubt that after Chateau Margaux, this is the top wine in Margaux and the critic scores reflect this.
94 points from Neal Martin, who comments;

"The 2017 Palmer was the first vintage when Thomas Duroux introduced wooden foudres. Around 60 hectoliters of the blend was used in the following vintage. It has a very elegant bouquet, a Palmer content to cruise in fourth gear, blackberry and boysenberry fruit, touches of clove and pressed flowers emerging with time, this is a well-defined nose with beautifully integrated oak. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannins. There is a lovely bead of acidity, dark berry fruit, slightly grainy in texture with a tangy saline finish. This is a very classic Palmer that should drink well for 20-30 years. Excellent. Drink 2023-2050."

If you can get hold of Château Palmer, we highly recommend you snap it up! It is great for investment purposes, as well as long term drinking.

4 /5

Vintage 2017 van Château Palmer is nauwkeurig, zonder overdaad. De wijnen vertonen de elegante balans van de meest klassieke jaargangen. Hun fluweelzachte tannines en aromatische diepte zijn beloften van een prachtig verouderingspotentieel.

4 /5

The 2016 Palmer is a blend of 47% Merlot, 47% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot. Opaque garnet-purple colored, it slowly slips out of the glass with convincing notes of blueberry compote, warm cherries and notes of violets, cigar box, black tea, sandalwood and pepper. Full bodied, wonderfully rich, concentrated and full of energy. On the palate this top is Palmer full buddish with low to low black, blue and red fruit and framed by super ripe, incredibly fine-grained tannins with an unprecedented aftertaste. The review in the Wine Advocate ends with: "This is so wonderfully Palmer."
