Although the alcoholic degree is very high, like in 2009, the acidity synonymous with freshness – and tannic concentration are greater, making for wines with an extremely solid foundation. Their power, combined with a high level of acidity, gives them the potential for becoming benchmarks, and for this to be a legendary vintage. Furthermore, as opposed to previous vintages of the century that are responsible for Bordeaux’s reputation, the ability to choose exactly the right time to pick and perfect control of extraction made it possible to temper the wines’ strength and vigor. They are like a finely cut diamond that, over time, will fully express all the delicacy of Chateau Palmer’s terroir.
Blend: 54% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot
