Flavours of violet, truffle, rose, coffee, blackberry, and tobacco come across gracefully on the nose. The Palate is greeted with flavours of olive, black cherry, plum, ginger, vanilla and cedar.
Blend: 52% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Petit Verdot
Aromas of spices and earth with mushrooms. Dark fruit. Full-bodied, dense and rich with earth and spices. A beauty. Soft and juicy. Savory yet exotic. From biodynamically grown grapes. First year. Drink or hold.
This second wine of Château Palmer is dense and structured. With ripe swathes of black fruits and juicy Merlot showing strongly, it already displays the potential of the vintage. Generous and ripe, the wine has a fine level of perfumed tannin. Drink from 2023.
Bursts with violet, plum and raspberry fruit, lined with silky tannins and backed by a tantalizing iron hint. Features lovely brisk energy and gorgeous purity. Barrel Sample: 90-93
It has an opulent, glossy bouquet with layers of small dark cherries and plenty of glycerin. The palate is more reserved than the bouquet suggests: saturated tannins, a little chewiness on the entry but suppler towards the finish. It feels very linear in keeping with the style of the vintage, the finish a little sweet than its peers with a dab of licorice on the aftertaste. Barrel Sample: 90-92
Beautiful perfume and polished flavours. Velvety-smooth, delicate tannins and a hidden depth that will build up in barrel white retaining freshness, length and purity. Rating: 90+
