2020 Château Palmer Margaux Grand Cru Classé
The 2020 Chateau Palmer Margaux is a blend of 48% Merlot, 48% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot and has a deep garnet purple color. The 2020 Palmer has a very serious nose of distinctly savory blackcurrants, warm plums and blackberries with hints of cedar brisket, pencil shavings, violets, dark chocolate and star anise plus exotic notes of sandalwood. Medium-bodied, the palate is fantastically vibrant, crisp black fruit with a firm texture of ripe, grainy tannins and tons of freshness, very long and minerally finish. It needs at least 5-7 years to really blossom, but then it is a stunner. The storage potential is also great until 2060+

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.
