Marks and reviews
Château Palmer is a star in the Margaux appellation, on the left bank of the Bordeaux region. Having built its legendary story on vintages that have become mythical, Château Palmer continues to write its history through fine wines that are renowned for their quality and their signature style.
Benefiting from an exceptional terroir located in the immediate vicinity of the Gironde estuary, Château Palmer comprises an unusual grape composition in the Médoc, with a strong emphasis on the Merlot variety, which appears alongside Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot.
Although the mild winter favoured an early vineyard development, the estate's teams increased their vigilance throughout the very wet spring season. Flowering ended in mid-June in good conditions. The mild summer weather, recorded only after mid-July, was ideal for a slow and gradual ripening of the grapes. The grapes harvested showcase a high quality, with ripe tannins sustained by a pleasant acidity, guaranteeing a promising ageing potential.
Cabernet Sauvignon (53%).
This rich and dense wine showcases a beautiful ruby colour with purple highlights.
The nose harmoniously blends power and complexity. The bouquet gradually reveals notes of pencil lead, black pepper, plum and eucalyptus.
Château Palmer 2000 possesses a bold mouthfeel from the outset. The palate develops racy tannins, coated by a full and delicious fruitiness. The whole is sustained by an exceptional freshness. The finish is particularly flavoursome and persistent.
Enjoy today, this Château Palmer 2000 can wait in the cellar for several decades to reveal its full aromatic palette.
