Estate Notes

Château Palmer 1995 is drinking beautifully right now and comes from a very good year on the Left Bank.

The turreted Château Palmer, originally established by English Major-general Charles Palmer who arrived after the Napoleonic wars, is now under the control of Franck Mähler-Besse, the son of a Dutch immigrant.

An intensely seductive Margaux style, incredibly rich and deeply concentrated through history (although it has become more subtle and approachable in style recently), Palmer is highly sought after around the world – and sits just below (in Margaux's current appellation hierarchy.

"...a gloriously opulent, low acid, fleshy Palmer that will be attractive early and keep well. Dark ruby/purple-colored, with smoky, toasty new oak intertwined with gobs of jammy cherry fruit, and floral and chocolate nuances, this medium to full-bodied, plump yet elegant wine is impressive."  Robert Parker

"Big and powerful, with loads of fruit and chewy tannins. Still just a baby. Full-bodied, with lots of structure and a long, long finish."  Wine Spectator
