Food Pairings for Château Palmer Red Bordeaux Blend Margaux
Appealing nose of lightly floral aromas coupled with lemon and lime zest. Light bodied and off dry, the flavors are straightforward with citrus the primary player while light acidity balances the gentle residual sweetness. Sure, the tense interplay of sugar, fruit and acid found in top-flight Riesling just isn't there, but this is a well-made, easy-drinking introduction to the variety.
I tried this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot at the very end of the tasting and although my senses were starting to tire, this wine just floored me with its almost black color and rich, almost port or cognac like notes on the nose. On the palate, it was a monster in such a outstanding way with massive amount of rich fruit and a gripping feel that just coated every part of my mouth with that beautiful fruit along with notes of charred wood and licorice and huge tannins that give it enough backbone to age for 30+ years. Although some experts feel that the anticipated maturity for this wine is 2017, it was approachable and delicious today and I can only imagine what the next few years will hold for those patient enough to hang on to it. 97 points

Spicy and delicious. Shows loads of fruit, with fine tannins and a long finish. Very pretty and juicy.
375 ml bottle from Richard Opened 4/7/09 Breathe for 1 hour Deep color Slightly Sweet Berry taste Long finish
Very nice margaux. I am glad they poured the 1996 at the Wine Spectator Grand Tour. It seemed to be the right time. This was 40% merlot, 55% cab and the balance was cab franc and petit verdot.
Fruity, hint of acidity, needs time to open up, but worth it
External Reviews for Château Palmer Red Bordeaux Blend Margaux
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.

From an assemblage of 54% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and the remainder Petit Verdot, the wine reached 14.5% alcohol. The beautiful, deep, purple color is almost opaque. Floral aromas are complicated with cassis, coffee, smoke, truffle, earth and ... Jeff Leve. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Chateau Palmer 750ml
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.*
