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.
88-91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2010
(a blend of 51% merlot and 49% cabernet sauvignon) Ruby-red. Precise aromas of red cherry, blackcurrant, cocoa and minerals. Bright and fresh in the mouth, with luscious flavors of red and black berries. Finishes clean and long, with an obviously inky/flinty note and mounting tannins that will need some time to resolve fully. A very successful Alter Ego.
