A wine that has density, structure and firm tannins, with touches of wood. At this stage, it is solid and impressive; and the tannins draw the great fresh fruit into the heart of the wine. - R.V. Wine Enthusiast. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Chateau Palmer 3000ml

A wine that shows excellent structure with ripe fruit and soft warm tannins. It has weight while retaining its crisp acidity and intense black-currant flavor. R.V. Wine Enthusiast.


Winemaker's Notes:

"Chateau Palmer’s 2011 yields of a minuscule 20 hectoliters per hectare were caused by the overall drought conditions, the extreme heat at the end of June, and some problems during flowering. Only 55% of the crop made it into Palmer, and given the lowest yields since 1961, the final blend of 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon possesses huge tannins, but they are remarkably velvety and sweet. This opaque purple-colored, dense, concentrated, full-bodied wine will need time to totally form its personality. The harvest, which occurred between September 10-24, produced a big, boisterous, concentrated wine that should age for 25-30 or more years." --Robert Parker*Robert Parker rating: (92-94+ pts.)**We will notify you on arrival summer 2014.*
