The 2011 Palmer is a blend of 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon. Half a century after the legendary 1961 vintage, this year's wine was notable for its extremely low yields, the result of hail and, in June, extreme heat. The concentrated result was both beautiful and unexpected, which should herald excellent ripening potential. Half a century after the legendary 1961 vintage, this year's wine was notable for its extremely low yields, the result of hail and, in June, extreme heat. The concentrated result was both beautiful and unexpected, which should herald excellent aging potential. Colored opaque garnet purple, it slowly slides out of the glass with convincing notes of blueberry compote, warm cherries and notes of violets, cigar box, black tea, sandalwood and pepper. Full bodied, wonderfully rich, concentrated and full of energy. On the palate, this top Palmer is full bodied with layer upon layer of black, blue and red fruit and framed by super ripe, incredibly fine-grained tannins with an unprecedented aftertaste.

Vineyard for 2011 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.
