About the Winery
Chateau Palmer is one of the fourteen Third Growth classified estates in Bordeaux. The winery is located next door to the fabled Chateau Margaux. Palmer was certified by Demeter for biodynamic farming in 2017.
This is sensational, characterized by such purity and beauty and with aromas of blackberries, dark chocolate, walnuts, cedar and lavender. Full-bodied, tight and focused — in part thanks to sensational tannin tension that is intense yet polished. Needs five to six years of bottle age to come together. Great second wine of Palmer. 96JS
