Ch Palmer 2015 | £1080/6 IB | “incredible character and style… the new 1961″ 99-100

June 8th 2016


The Chateau enjoyed almost perfect conditions during picking with superb phenolic ripeness; a trait of this appellation in 2015. The Merlot is magnificent, aromatic and beautifully ripe. The relatively high alcohol is balanced by the dense tannic structure. The wine has beautiful freshness and is very long. It oozes class and is an utter pleasure to taste.

Bordeaux 2015: Pontet Canet, Calon Segur, Montrose, Pichon Baron

Arriving at Pontet Canet now and we are met by Melanie Tessaron who has produced a wine that today is certainly showing as the most structured of the wines tasted so far. Lots of minerality on the palate with a meaty and savoury characteristic very prominent. This is quite a big and structured Pontet, with a sweet core.
