Buyer Review
  1. Geoff Pattison
    Extremely dark, almost black, with a glowing red rim. The densely packed nose is brooding with dark fruit and a smoky mineral element. Muscular on the palate, almost reminiscent of the 2010, but with a lovely freshness that is a hallmark of the 2016 vintage. There is a beautiful sense of deep inner perfume in this wine that comes out on the long finish, I suspect this will be absolutely stunning when it hits maturity. Despite the strength of the 2015 vintage in Margaux, I think they have made an even better wine this year.
  • 98+ Wine Advocate Notes

    The 2016 Palmer is a blend of 47% Merlot, 47% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot. Opaque garnet-purple colored, it slowly glides out of the glass with compelling notes of blueberry compote, warm cassis and kirsch with emerging hints of violets, cigar box, black tea, sandalwood and Sichuan pepper. Medium to full-bodied, wonderfully rich, concentrated and packed with latent energy, the palate literally grows in the mouth, revealing layer upon layer of black, blue and red fruits and tons of floral sparks, framed by super ripe, incredibly fine-grained tannins and finishing with epic length. Its a wine that makes you wanna drape yourself languidly over a chaise lounge, glass of Palmer in hand, sighing with deep satisfaction, This is so wonderfully Palmer. -Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate

  • 100 Vinous Notes

    Technical Director Thomas Duroux and his team made one of the most brilliant wines of the 2016 vintage. Palmer is simply exceptional. Rich and dramatically sweeping in the glass, the 2016 is breathtaking. All the elements simply fall into place in a wine of mesmerizing beauty. The counterpoint of dark, sumptuous fruit and floral notes makes for an utterly compelling Palmer that will take its place among the estate's finest vintages. Dark cherry, lavender, spice and mocha are some of the many notes that build into a deep, substantial finish that is truly unforgettable. In a word: magnificent! -Antonio Galloni, Vinous
