About Chateau Palmer
Chateau Palmer may have been classified a Third Growth in 1855, but today it routinely challenges Chateau Margaux for "best of the appellation" status. This "Super Second" has routinely picked up the slack in years that Margaux has fallen short.

($290-$350) Good deep red-ruby. Deep, brooding aromas of blackberry, kirsch and chocolate mint, with a distinctly roasted, jammy character showing today. Compellingly sweet and explosive on the palate, with great fat to the flavors of plum, mulberry, coffee and mocha; like a cocktail of jammy fruits. This is downright massive, not to say decadent, for Palmer-at 14% alcohol the highest ever recorded here. A pure liquid confection.
