2016 Bordeaux: Château Palmer, one of the great wines of Margaux

by Beth Thomas

Following the release earlier this morning of CHÂTEAU GLORIA  and CHÂTEAU SAINT PIERRE comes the wonderfully impressive CHÂTEAU PALMER, one of the great wines of Margaux. This has been released at £1420 per case of 6 In Bond, which is certainly a price as grand as the wine. It represents an increase of about 25% from the 2015 vintage for the UK market, however this is well within our estimate.

Jane Anson (Decanter) scored this a highly creditable 98 points saying it is ‘Intellectual without being overbearing, and built to age’. Neal Martin gave it 95-97, Jancis Robinson 17.5+, James Suckling 99-100, Antonio Galloni 95-98 and Tim Atkin 96 points.

Availability of this highly sought after wine will certainly be limited, but please place your orders and as ever we will do our very best to meet them.

As ever, you can keep up to date with everything out from #Bdx16 on our Recent Releases page.
