"I never drink Grands Crus Classés, which make up the majority of my cellar, until they are ten years old. It's a principle."

These are the words of Professor Émile Peynaud, founder of modern oenology, when asked about the best time to open a Bordeaux Grand Cru. For lovers of Château Palmer, this concept is nothing new: the years spent in the cellar certainly magnify a wine that has been acquired en-first. But times are changing and some famous wineries such as Latour and Palmer are looking to offer an alternative by bringing exactly ten year old wines back to the market, having reached their first peak in the peace and privacy of the chateau and at Chateau Palmer. called it: PALMER, 10 YEARS ON.

Under the Appendices tab you will find an extensive presentation of Chateau Palmer about this limited edition

With a deep garnet color, the 2010 Palmer rolls out of the glass with warm cassis, baked plum and boysenberry scents plus hints of candied violets, star anise and dried bay leaves. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is generously fruity, with a firm backbone of grainy tannins and seamless freshness, long finish. Drinking window: 2020-2050

Vineyard for 2010 Château Palmer

Chateau Palmer | Margaux | Wine Academy | Cult Wines

Château Palmer is located in the heart of the Margaux appellation in the Bordeaux wine region. The 66 hectares of vineyards have a gravel soil and the vines overlook the Gironde River. The area with its rich ancient history and nourishing microclimate is a fantastic environment for the vines. Here they can flourish and grow under the passionate care of the people of Château Palmer. Behind every great wine is a great terroir. This is also the case at Château Palmer, which is located on a long strip of land between the Atlantic Ocean and the Gironde. The land is well drained, rich in the deposits of the Garonne and Dordogne rivers. It is difficult soil for agriculture, but exceptional for grapes. Of course, the vines also need good care in order to perform optimally. And that is certainly entrusted to the employees of Château Palmer! Full of passion and love for the vines, they cultivate the demanding terroir. The people of this winery are more than just colleagues. Together they embrace the common core values of Château Palmer and are therefore extremely dynamic, curious, passionate, open-minded and determined. In short, they live for and with the vineyards.
