Château Palmer 2015, 3ème Cru, Margaux

PALM175
What a resounding success, some even arguing that it could attain legendary status. A higher degree of Cabernet Sauvignon than usual has made for a more masculine style of Palmer this vintage. Concentration, depth and power are the defining characteristics of this great wine. Expensive? Yes but it is nevertheless one of the most sought after wines of this vintage

Tasting Notes

"I am breathless with the dark-berry, lavender and burnt-orange aromas. Some salt. Just so formidable and deep. Stunningly sexy on the palate with a density and power, yet it leaves things so clean and bright. You want to drink it and enjoy it now, but it has the structure to last forever. " (2/2018)100 points James Suckling

Food Matches

Enjoy with braised lamb with giant white beans.

Press Comments

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Bottled relatively late in mid-September 2017, the 2015 Palmer is a blend of 44% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon with a small portion of Petit Verdot. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it offers vibrant red currants, black cherries, wild blueberries, earth and mineral characteristics to begin, with slowly unfurling floral notes of violets and dried roses plus compelling baker’s chocolate and fragrant earth layers. Medium to full-bodied, generously fruited and possessing firm yet very, very fine-grained, mind-blowingly ripe tannins, the multifaceted palate features something of a skip in its step in terms of freshness, while it goes beguilingly earthy on the finish with some mineral hints. Very classy, elegant and sophisticated, this vintage is downright regal in its juxtaposition between poise and audaciousness. Think 2005 Palmer with a tick more fruit intensity, perfume and passion.
