Chateau Palmer Owc 2003
External Reviews for Chateau Palmer Owc
This estate s grand vin and second wine have both benefited immensely from stricter selections. The 2003 vintage s heat and drought stressed this vineyard s light soils, resulting in an atypical Palmer. The 2003 Palmer possesses a dark ruby/purple color, high, austere tannins, less flesh and mid-palate than usual, medium body, and a flowery black currant-scented bouquet. It lacks the extra dimension required aromatically, texturally, and flavor-wise to achieve their normal quality level. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020.
