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.


Winemaker's Notes:

* *_2011 Bordeaux Futures. Delivery due autumn 2014._*"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'l notify on arrival, autumn 2014._*
