Chateau Palmer 1999
Tasting NoteA beautiful nose of roses, black cherry, thyme, truffle and a light background note of cocoa make this fun to work with. On the palate, the wine shows silky, soft, textures, an elegant, fresh character and sweet cherries in the upbeat finish. This is fully mature. If you have a bottle, this is the sweet spot.

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.
