Chateau Palmer Margaux 3rd Grand Cru Classe 2016

For the 2016 Chateau Palmer Margaux 3eme Grand Cru Classe 750ml, expect an intense and complex bouquet with aromas of ripe dark fruit, cassis, and floral notes. The palate is rich and full-bodied, with well-structured tannins and a long, persistent finish. This wine is a perfect representation of its terroir and is expected to age gracefully for many years.

Wine Enthusiast

Powerful tannins and hugely rich fruit balance together in this superb wine. The velvet texture belies the power behind the concentrated, ripe black-fruit flavor, with vibrant acidity giving ample lift. The wine's structure will ensure aging for many years. Drink from 2024. Roger Voss

Robert Parker (Wine Advocate) -

The 2016 Palmer is a blend of 47% Merlot, 47% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot. Opaque garnet-purple colored, it slowly glides out of the glass with compelling notes of blueberry compote, warm cassis and kirsch with emerging hints of violets, cigar box, black tea, sandalwood and Sichuan pepper. Medium to full-bodied, wonderfully rich, concentrated and packed with latent energy, the palate literally grows in the mouth, revealing layer upon layer of black, blue and red fruits and tons of floral sparks, framed by super ripe, incredibly fine-grained tannins and finishing with epic length. It’s a wine that makes you wanna drape yourself languidly over a chaise lounge, glass of Palmer in hand, sighing with deep satisfaction, “This is so wonderfully Palmer.” - Reviewed by Lisa Perrotti-Brown
