2015 Chateau Palmer, Margaux, France

THE LATEST OF A FINE LINEAGE.

Both extravagant and perfectly structured, Château Palmer 2015 is the archetype of the suave character that the estate’s wines display with such talent. Open and expressive, this wine has excellent ageing potential but can also be enjoyed now. Years ending in five – with the notable exception of 1965 – have always produced top-quality wines. The beginning of the vine’s growing cycle was characterized by a relatively dry climate. The vegetative development was extremely regular and the flowering conditions were perfect. The rainfall that followed the fertilization of the flowers enabled good berry growth. In late June, temperatures rose and the dry weather settled, favoring an early end to vegetative growth, the thickening of the berry skins, the concentration of tannins, and the rapid growth of pips. At the end of July, the weather conditions changed radically and we were faced with a succession of moderate rainy periods. This caused the ripening to begin and the berries grew to a more traditional size. The Margaux appellation enjoyed especially favorable weather conditions throughout September. We harvested a few young vines on September 15, but the harvest started in earnest on September 22. The Merlot grapes were magnificent, rich, and very ripe. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot grapes followed and were just as promising. The relatively high alcoholic content of the 2015 vintage is balanced out by a dense tannic structure free from any rustic notes thanks to the perfect phenolic maturity of the pips and skins. This outstanding balance leads us to believe that 2015 will be similar to other recent great vintages, such as 2010, 2009, and 2005.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate

Bottled relatively late in mid-September 2017, the 2015 Palmer is a blend of 44% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon with a small portion of Petit Verdot. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it offers vibrant red currants, black cherries, wild blueberries, earth and mineral characteristics to begin, with slowly unfurling floral notes of violets and dried roses plus compelling baker’s chocolate and fragrant earth layers. Medium to full-bodied, generously fruited and possessing firm yet very, very fine-grained, mind-blowingly ripe tannins, the multifaceted palate features something of a skip in its step in terms of freshness, while it goes beguilingly earthy on the finish with some mineral hints. Very classy, elegant and sophisticated, this vintage is downright regal in its juxtaposition between poise and audaciousness. Think 2005 Palmer with a tick more fruit intensity, perfume and passion.
