Palmer is always great, and this was no exception. Amazing length of finish, still lots of fruit. Fantastic structure and balance.
One of the superb wines of the vintage, the 1983 Palmer continues to display a saturated purple/garnet color, and an intense perfume of jammy black fruits, smoked meats, flowers, cedar, and Asian spices. Super-concentrated, powerful, and full-bodied, this huge, unctuously textured wine is approaching its plateau of maturity. Because of the high Merlot content it can easily be drunk now, yet promises to last for another 20-25 years. I remain convinced that the 1983 will be the most powerful Palmer since the compelling 1961.
Floral nose, leathery texture, great balance between fruit and earthiness. Has potential to age a few more years.

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
55% merlot, 45% cabernet sauvignon. Vines are planted on 55 hectares of stony gravel soils at a density of 10,000 per hectare, and are on average 35 years old. All are harvested by hand.

Loaded with exotic fruit, with masses of crushed blackberry and blueberry. Superclear and fruit forward. Full and velvety, with fresh acidity and a long, long finish. This is almost in your face, but reserved in a way. Superseductive. Score range: 95... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Chateau Palmer 1500ml

"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.*
