Chateau Palmer 1992
"Palmer's 1992 revealed good ripeness and more concentration from cask samples. Now that it has been bottled, it is clear that the fining/filtration done at bottling has removed some of the delicately constructed fruit and finesse. The color is a medium ruby and the nose offers up aggressive aromas of toasty new oak, black-cherry and blackcurrant fruit."

Consecration. Since 1938, Château Palmer has distinguished itself as one of Bordeaux’s leading grand crus. In less than a century, four families have helped to drive the estate towards international recognition. Today, two have remained to lead it into a new era. The Mähler-Besse family, originally from the Netherlands, made its name in the textile and wine business. The Sichel family specialized in the distribution of fine wines in the UK, France and Germany. Together, their descendants rebuilt the estate after the Second World War, and brought into the world a number of exceptional vintages, including the legendary 1961. They have now entrusted the direction of Château Palmer to Thomas Duroux, but continue to ensure the estate evolves sustainably, attentive to the world that surrounds it.
