Plenty of licorice, berry and mineral character in this red. Full-bodied, with super, well-integrated tannins and a long finish. Only now giving a fraction of what it has to offer. A harmonious Palmer. Best after 2005. 12,200 cases made. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1999 Chateau Palmer 750ml


Winemaker's Notes:

Robert Parker scores this 95 points and writes “The 1999 is the greatest Palmer made since 1961, 1966, 1970, 1983, and 1989. It is one of the superstars of the vintage. The wine is a blend of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Merlot, and 6% Petit Verdot. It boasts a staggering bouquet of violets and other spring flowers intermixed with licorice, black currants, and subtle wood. Only 50% of the production made it into the grand vin. This is a multidimensional, compelling effort with both power and elegance, it offers sweet tannin along with flavors that caress the palate, and a 45-second finish. This is terrific stuff! Anticipated maturity: 2004-2025."
