Château Palmer, 3ème Cru Classé, Margaux, 2015

Tasting Note:

Chateau Palmer was at pains to point out that they only received 30 mm of rain in the whole of September; it is fair to say that Margaux enjoyed the best of conditions in the Medoc. They believe that 2015 sits amongst other greats such as the 2010, 2009 and 2005, and we would not disagree, these are sensational wines. 2015 was the second year the estate is fully biodynamic, although they won't be certified biodynamic until 2017. They are continuing to reduce the use of SO2 in winemaking. The first time the wines come into contact with SO2 is after the malolactic fermentations. Those who like the luxurious style of Palmer will not be disappointed. Notes of violets and stones meet with brooding dark fruit on this impressive bouquet. The palate is awash with crème de cassis, sweet blueberry and earthy fruit. It is velvety and possesses almost right bank richness yet has wonderful tension and lift. More decadent, lavish fruit coats the tannins and gives this structure. This is very impressive, large-scale Palmer. 44% Merlot, 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot.
