En Primeur Chateau Palmer 2016 is now available for sale
Château Palmer was established in the first half of the nineteenth century by the English general, Charles Palmer. In 1814, on his way back from the Peninsular War where he had fought with Wellington against Napoleon, General Palmer acquired Chateau de Gascq in Margaux and gave it his own name. The vines cover a surface of 52 hectares made up of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. Wines are matured for at least 18 months in oak barrel.
‘’I wrote that the 2015 was incredible, and this 2016 is again. It’s equally structured and powerful as the 2015, yet there’s an underlying intellectual serenity to this wine. You taste it, and you want to know and experience it even more. Full and tannic yet ever so polished and beautiful. Mesmerizing. Made from biodynamically grown grapes.” – 99/100pts James Suckling, March 2017
