"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." JamesSuckling.com

"The unintentional reduction of yields (29hl/ha) due to conversion to organic farming and a failed treatment has concentrated the fruit to a unique level in the Médoc. Artistically vinified, it has a velvety texture and a magical integration of the tannins. A beauty. And a very high expression of Merlot, at nearly half of the blend." Michel Bettane/Thierry Desseauve, The World of Fine Wine, Issue 56

"Sophisticated and polished from the outset, the 2016 Palmer is utterly captivating. Dark shades of fruit, accented by hints of smoke, leather and discreet French oak open up in the glass, but it is the wine's effortless, gracious personality that stands out most. The 2016 literally hovers on the palate with exquisite grace. I can't wait to see how it ages." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Very dark, velvety look - really bright. Complex and energetic. Not simple and sweet but quite a step change. Feels a little transitional because it's so different and more energetic than the old style. 65% new oak, as always, but the wine can absorb it better. Some bitter chocolate. Lots of sweetness. Energy and freshness." JancisRobinson.com
