Château Palmer Red Bordeaux Blend Margaux 1989

Winemaker's Notes:

"Palmer's 1989 is one of the vintage's great successes. The wineexhibits a dark ruby/purple color, a sweet, jammy nose of black fruits,intermingled with floral scents, licorice, and a touch of truffles.Full-bodied and supple, with low acidity, copious quantities of ripefruit and glycerin, and a medium to full-bodied, concentrated,harmonious, seamless texture, this is a gorgeous Palmer. It may turnout similar to this estate's brilliant 1962 and 1953. Althoughapproachable, it will improve for another decade, and last for 20-25years."95 pointsRobert Parker, Wine Advocate # 109, Feb 1997"Deepruby color at the center, with a red edge. Shows lovely floral, berryand plum aromas and hints of earth. Full-bodied and chewy, with massesof tannins and a long, sweet and ripe berry aftertaste. Just peekingthrough the curtain. Great potential. Muscular-style Palmer.--1989Bordeaux horizontal. Best after 2000." Score: 93The Wine Spectator, May 31st, 1999

Chateau Palmer:

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
