A remarkable blend of 47% Merlot, 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 6% Petit Verdot, an unconventional combination for a left bank Bordeaux, imparts Palmer's distinct elegance. Palmer's vineyards, situated on a diverse range of soil variations encompassing 18 different gravel, clay, and sand types scattered across 106 parcels, contribute to the estate's uniqueness. With an average vine age of 38 years and some parcels reaching up to 70 years old, the vineyards hold a rich history.

 Notably, one outstanding parcel, located just behind the Chateau, was not part of the estate during the 1855 classification. Leaving room for speculation as to whether this parcel would have enhanced the Chateau's standing back then. Regardless, Chateau Palmer consistently produces some of Bordeaux's most exceptional wines.

"Blackberry, licorice and tar follow through to a full-bodied palate, with firm, silky tannins and a medium berry and vanilla aftertaste. Juicy wine. Best after 2008, (WS, 90 Points)".
