Chateau Palmer despite its third growth status is considered one of the top producers in all of Bordeaux. The wines from the Margaux appellation are consistently rated as highly as most of the first growths.
"The 2016 Palmer has a generous, slightly lactic bouquet of opulent red fruit infused with touches of dark chocolate, although it calms down and gains more grace with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and well-judged acidity. Very harmonious, revealing cedar and mint toward the extraordinarily persistent finish." - 98pts, Vinous
