Case Price
Château Palmer
99-100 JS
"I wrote that the 2015 was incredible, and this 2016 is again. It’s equally structured and powerful as the 2015, yet there’s an underlying intellectual serenity to this wine. You taste it, and you want to know and experience it even more. Full and tannic yet ever so polished and beautiful. Mesmerizing. Made from biodynamically grown grapes." (99-100 points) JamesSuckling.com, April 4, 2017
Alter Ego de Château Palmer [2nd wine of Ch. Palmer] (6 bottle case)
95-96 JS
"This is very concentrated yet soft and fresh in texture. Full-bodied and round and mouth-filling. So impressive how it fills your mouth yet remains fresh. It’s so framed." (95-96 points) JamesSuckling.com, April 4, 2017

Château Saint-Pierre
94-96 WA
"...quite intense black fruit, graphite and just a touch of dried herbs. There is lovely definition and focus on display. The palate is well balanced with grainy tannin, a crisp line of acidity, classic in style in keeping with the style of the vintage with very fine mineralité and tension towards the sprightly finish..." (94-96 points) Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #230, April 2017
