Wine shouldn't be allowed to be this incredible! Thomas Duroux and his team have taken Château Palmer to another level with this thrilling vintage 2010 that is a true success of the Margaux appellation. Utterly seductive, it really has the power, grace, sophistication and poise of a First Growth, and has even more charm than some. This is a sensationally rich, full-throttle Palmer that could well end up being one of the all-time great wines made at this estate.

The critically-acclaimed blend is composed of 54% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot, creating an incredibly complex combination of aromas and flavours. The robe is a deep, rich purple colour. The nose is dominated by blackcurrant, plum and spice, with hints of violet. On the palate, it is full bodied and incredibly powerful. Its concentrated flavours linger in the mouth with a complex, marine-tinged finish, very supple tannins, and a fine bead of acidity. Now ready to drink, thanks to a good 10 years of cellaring, it can be drunk over the following 50 or more years.

Winemaker Notes

château palmer

by thomas duroux
Château Palmer was established in the first half of the nineteenth century by the English general Charles Palmer. In 1938, the Sichel family joined forces with a group of wine merchant friends to purchase the property. Today, the vines of Château Palmer cover a surface of 52 hectares of croupes of Garonne gravel, and are made up of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot. This combination of soil and grape varieties has been the greatest asset of this Classified Third Growth from its earliest beginnings. In addition to the Grand Vin, the Château Palmer portfolio also includes Alter Ego and Historical XIXth Century Wine.
