Marks and reviews
A Classified Growth in the Official Classification of 1855, Chateau Palmer is a real star of the Margaux appellation, on the left bank of the Bordeaux region. With biodynamic viticulture launched in 2009, Chateau Palmer has chosen to convert the entire vineyard in 2014. Having built its legacy on vintages that have become legendary, Chateau Palmer continues to write its history under the direction of the talented Thomas Duroux.
Upon an exceptional terroir in the immediate vicinity of the Gironde estuary, Chateau Palmer has fairly unusual grape varieties for a Medoc estate, with Merlot given pride of place (47%), supplemented by an equal portion (47%) Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot.
The 2019 vintage brilliantly confirms the excellent work carried out by the technical teams of the estate. Beginning with the Merlot on September 19 and ending on October 11, the harvest at Chateau Palmer yielded sublime fruit. The Merlot displayed a beautiful exuberance while the Cabernet Sauvignon and the Petit Verdot showed exceptional finesse. Ultimately, 2019 resulted in wines that are faithful to the terroir of Chateau Palmer, wines that will once again mark the history of the estate's great vintages.
Tasted as a Wine Future, the Chateau Palmer 2019 displays in the glass a deep purple color. The aromatic bouquet is captivating, springing from the glass with notes of black fruits and spices. The palate reveals this silky and almost carnal texture, faithful to the style of Chateau Palmer. The tannic structure presents itself on the palate with a delicate character, remarkable in both depth and relief. Already, the complexity, structure and richness of Chateau Palmer suggest the birth of a vintage that is ready to endure the decades ahead, evolving beautifully and embodying without artifice and with great brilliance the identity of this exceptional Margaux terroir.
