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.

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

Blackberry, licorice and tar follow through to a full-bodied palate, with firm, silky tannins and a medium berry and vanilla aftertaste. Juicy wine. Best after 2008. 6,000 cases made. (JS) Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2003 Chateau Palmer 750ml

3eme Cru Classe Margaux 2003 - Château Palmer: 3eme Cru Classe Margaux 2003 - Rotwein von Château PalmerDer Wein besitzt ein dunkles, intensives Rot. Der Duft beinhaltet vollreife Früchte, Brombeere, schwarzen Holunder und Cassis gefolgt von Menthol und Lakritz. Im Mund erscheint er anfangs samtig und weich. Der 3eme Cru Classe Margaux 2003 von Château Palmer berauscht anschließend mit seiner Fülle, ist fleischig und umspielt mit viel Aroma den Gaumen, kräftige Noten von Kaffee und Kakao unterstreichen seine Kraft. Ein dichter Wein mit angenehmer Säure, lang, frisch und ausgewogen mit großem Potential.Der Wein ist zu Hause in der Spitzengastronomie, Haut Cuisine, bei Liebhabern und Sammler edler Bordeaux-Weine, er sieht sich als Begleiter aromatischer Fleischgänge und zu kräftigen, gereiften Käsesorten, spielt auch gerne die Rolle als Solist.    Weingut: Château PalmerLand: FrankreichRegion: Bordeaux-MargauxRebsorte: 20% Merlot, 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit VerdotInhalt: 0,75 lLagerfähigkeit: 10 - 15 Jahre ab Jahrgang Suche nach Rebsorten > Rote Rebsorten > Petit Verdot
