    The unique style of an iconic Margaux

    The Grand Vin of the eponymous estate, the Chateau Palmer 2017 yet again confirms the excellence of its rank, having become one of the must-have’s of the Bordeaux wine market.

    Vintage after vintage, this Third Classified Growth of 1855 in the Margaux appellation continues to seduce Bordeaux-lovers with its remarkable consistency and its unchanging, iconic style.

    If it is true that great wines are born from great terroirs, it is often said that "great terroirs look to the water". Located in the immediate vicinity of the Gironde estuary, Chateau Palmer has long benefited from the protection of this river, which acts as a climate-regulator, shielding the vines of the property from the disastrous effects of frost during the month of April 2017. A perfect understanding of the plots and an environmentally conscious management of the vineyard with biodynamics practices has allowed the team to produce a great wine, despite this challenging vintage, a wine that offers an accurate and authentic expression of the complex Chateau Palmer terroir.

    With a blend dominated by Merlot (54%), complemented by Cabernet Sauvignon (42%) and Petit Verdot (4%), Chateau Palmer 2017 clearly illustrates the philosophy of the estate. Perfectly balanced without being too overwhelming, this wine seduces with its harmony on the palate, developing an aromatic intensity upon a precise frame that reveals the softness of melted tannins. Bearing a unique and already magnificent style, the Chateau Palmer 2017 will evolve remarkable over time, offering the kind of noble depth to which only the greatest Grands Crus hold the secret.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    A blend of 54% Merlot, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot, the deep garnet-purple colored, 2017 Palmer gives a very serious nose of pronounced blackcurrant cordial, warm plums and blackberry preserves with hints of cedar chest, pencil shavings, violets, dark chocolate and star anise plus exotic wafts of sandalwood and cassia. Medium-bodied, the palate features fantastically vibrant, crunchy black fruits with a firm texture of ripe, grainy tannins and tons of freshness, finishing very long and mineral laced. It will need a good 5-7 years to really blossom with all those tightly wound nuances, but it should be a stunner!
