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.
85-87 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 1998
Very good deep red. Redcurrant, raspberry, plum and spicy oak on the nose. Supple on entry, then a bit disjointed, with some unresolved acidity giving the wine a slightly tart quality. A rather gentle wine of modest ripeness and concentration, not to mention thrust. But not at all overextracted. Finishes with gentle tannins.
