Château Palmer

After the First Growths this is traditionally one of the highest performing chateaux and is always in high demand. Winemaker Thomas Duroux has overseen the chateau’s first 100% biodynamic wine this vintage, following a journey that began back in 2008.

Tasting Notes

A big and concentrated Palmer with dense black fruits and a sturdy structure. This wine will require time to develop but will be worth the wait.

Food Matches

Enjoy with braised lamb with giant white beans.

Press Comments

Robert Parker, 2014: "The opaque blue/purple-colored 2011 Palmer reveals a stunning bouquet of licorice, truffles, camphor, spring flowers, black raspberries and black currants. One of the superstars of the vintage, this brilliant 2011 possesses superb concentration and purity, medium to full body, and remarkable length of close to a minute. A tour de force in winemaking, the Palmer team merits accolades for achieving this level of quality in a more challenging vintage than either 2009 or 2010."
