Chateau Palmer Margaux-Bordeaux Price Per Unit Bottle 1961

Winemaker's Notes:

The 1961 Palmer has long been considered to be a legend from this vintage, andits reputation is well-deserved. The wine is at its apogee, with anextraordinary, sweet, complex nose with aromas of flowers, cassis, toast, andminerals. It is intensely concentrated, offering a cascade of lavishly ripe,full-bodied, opulent fruit, soft tannins, and a voluptuous finish. This is adecadent Palmer, unparalleled since in quality with the exception of 1983 and1989. (Robert Parker - Wine Advocate - Oct 94)

A grand cru is a matter of origin in time as in space. The Château Palmer style is embedded in history and dedicated to the expression of its terroir. It is a style beyond fashion and trends. To experience its timelessness, there is no better way than to taste it. Again and again. Finesse and elegance, typical of the great wines of Margaux, are the permanent trademarks of Château Palmer, characterized by the softness and refinement of silk, the warmth of velvet, and the leather of noblesse. The unusual combination of grape varieties – as much Merlot as Cabernet Sauvignon and a small amount of Petit Verdot – gives Château Palmer a bouquet of extraordinary complexity, with fruit, flowers, and spice wrapped in a fleshy and generous structure. The subtle balance between aromatic richness and powerful yet always restrained tannins makes Palmer a wine of incomparable charm, even when very young. Its length leaves the persistent memory of a heady mix of sensations and emotions. Long barrel ageing is essential for Château Palmer to give full expression to its gravely soil and reveal all its body and flesh. This ageing continues very slowly for many years and even decades in the bottle. Your patience will be generously rewarded when you taste an old vintage. It exudes a particularly rich and complex aromatic finish, sometimes exotic, always unforgettable. Wine tasting is a meeting of two living bodies as they surrender to each other, the human being and the wine. Tasters always have expectations from the wine they choose: good wines meet them; Château Palmer exceeds them. Read less
