Chateau Palmer, 3eme Cru Classé Margaux, Bordeaux, France, 2006

Grapes: A blend of 47% Merlot, 46% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Petit Verdot, 55ha vineyard on gravel soil, organic and biodynamic, 21 months' ageing in French oak (up to 60% new barrels)

Palmer is renowned for its fleshy texture derived from the unusually high proportion of old vine Merlot in the blend. Many of these vines were planted in the 1930s.

Critics' Tasting Notes:

"Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London. The 2006 Château Palmer was wonderful out of barrel ten years ago and now in bottle, it fulfills its promise with a stunning, precise bouquet of maraschino, iodine, cassis and tobacco scents that seem a few years younger than its Margaux peers. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin that cloak its sweet core of cassis and blackcurrant fruit. However, what is so striking is the fineness of the tannin and just how well that oak is subsumed into the fabric of the wine. This is a long-term proposition: a great Margaux from Thomas Duroux." Drink 2018-2040

94/100 points, Neal Martin, WINE ADVOCATE, May 2016

"A few hours in the decanter added a lot to the wine, softening the tannins, adding body and roundness to the textures. The fruit is refined, the nose is complex and there is good length. This is starting to open, but it's still young. Give it several more years and this should be quite charming."

94/100 points, Jeff Leve, THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER, March 2017
