Bordeaux Futures in Focus: 2020 Palmer
We are excited to offer the 2020 Château Palmer. Another stellar vintage of the estate's grand vin continues its run of benchmark releases.
The 2020 Château Palmer is a blend of equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with a 4% balance of Petit Verdot, quite similar to the cépage from the château's 2016 100-point grand vin. Neal Martin describes the 2020 release from Palmer: it "possesses one of the most perfumed bouquets of the vintage with entrancing, seductive scents of black cherries, wild strawberry, iodine and crushed violets, all beautifully delineated... This is a Palmer destined for long-term ageing."

As an early adopter of 100% biodynamic viticulture in Bordeaux, Château Palmer has been keen to manage every aspect of grape-growing, harvest, and wine-making with the most careful eye and delicate hand. Palmer continues to garner great success with its focus on expressing the estate's unique terroir while promoting seamless integration of oak and maintaining intense purity of fruit flavors during maturation.
The 2020 Château Palmer will continue to receive critical acclaim, as reviewers begin to revisit Bordeaux in person; however, we will only be able to offer first tranche pricing on this magnificent wine for currently available allocations.

2020 Château Palmer Critical Accolades

"The 2020 Palmer, which was matured in 65% new oak, possesses one of the most perfumed bouquets of the vintage with entrancing, seductive scents of black cherries, wild strawberry, iodine and crushed violets, all beautifully delineated (as per usual). The palate is medium-bodied with fine but quite firm tannins, lending this Palmer more backbone than presupposed. Blackberry, graphite and touches of liquorice develop with aeration that build towards an assertive, pencil box-tinged finish that nods towards Pauillac. This is a Palmer destined for long-term ageing, so readers should have a cool damp cellar handy. It is a serious Palmer, very different from the previous two vintages, not a mix of the two, but content in just being itself." (96-98 points) – Neal Martin

"The Merlot provides the broad sweep and touch of sweetness on entry, the Cabernet the fine but punchy tannins that drive the wine. Lots of life and persistence, the tannins fine-grained and fresh. Clear potential." (18+ points) – James Lawther MW for Jancis Robinson
