Winemaker Notes

Purple-ruby color of very high intensity. Expressive nose of very ripe dark berries, bracken, cinnamon, wood, peony, violet, smoke, and fresh mint. Perfectly ripe fruitiness, full, tender tannins and lots of freshness in the mouth. Elegance is the prevailing note here with an ideal expression of the terroir. The finish is already long and gorgeous.

Perfect balance is in view but still requires a little time to emerge and to let the pure drinking pleasure take hold. Peak: 2010-2025

Blend: 47% Merlot, 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Fairly deep color. Gorgeous smoky, floral nose is flamboyant and seductive. It’s bright, intense, with rich cherry fruit, mint, and tobacco. The wonderful fruit character on the nose returns in the mouth; it’s soft and velvety, drinking beautifully right now! The 2004 is not one of the more complex Palmers, more floral and delicate than powerful, but everyone loved it. The terrific performance of the 2004 was easily the biggest surprise of the entire tasting.
WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
This wine hits the opulent end of the spectrum, with its dense, velvet structure, and superrich fruit. But it is not weighed down with this richness, because the pure fruit, the fine lines of the tannins and the very precise character of the vanilla from the wood all give liveliness.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Aromas of licorice, tar and mineral follow through to a full-bodied palate, with silky tannins and a medium finish. A very pretty wine already. Falls a little short, but still outstanding. Best after 2009. 6,000 cases made.

Chateau Palmer, France
Chateau Palmer Chateau Palmer Winery Image
A gentleman, officer, and aide-de-camp of the Prince of Wales, Charles Palmer was famous at the English court as a ladies man and for his military victories. He fell under the spell of Bordeaux as well as the charms of Marie de Gascq, a beautiful widow who convinced him to buy her estate.

Charles Palmer devoted a great deal of time, energy, and money to developing his property. The Major General lived mainly in England, and so the estate was managed by his authorized representative, Mr Grey, who helped to increase the wine's reputation among wealthy connoisseurs.

In June 1853, the brothers Isaac and Emile Péreire, famous bankers and rivals of the Rothschilds, bought Palmer and began investing in the estate immediately. However, there was not enough time to bring Chateau Palmer up to first growth status in time for the famous 1855 classification. It was thus ranked a Third Growth, although it is widely recognized as among the greatest wines of Bordeaux.

Several families of Bordeaux, English, and Dutch extraction all involved in the wine trade, united to buy Palmer in 1938 and have worked hard to give the estate its present reputation. These families have always given priority to quality, despite the financial risk this entailed. They have unfailingly applied the principles that have made the great wines of Bordeaux so successful: authenticity, quality, and permanence.
