Palmer 1993

Chateau Palmer


Despite a healthy dark ruby color, this diluted, thin, emaciated wine lacks depth and body. High tannin in the finish will cause the wine to become increasingly angular, and, in all likelihood, dry out. *** Palmer's 1993 is significantly richer and more concentrated than the light-bodied, diluted 1992. The 1993 exhibits an excellent dark ruby color, and an attractive, precociously developed bouquet of smoky scents, black fruits (cherries galore!), damp earth, and spices. The wine is medium-bodied, with enough ripe fruit and succulence to be considered nearly opulent. Low acidity, moderate tannin, and fine concentration have rendered this a very successful 1993. It should drink well upon release and last for 10-15 years.

Chateau Palmer

Chateau Palmer is a top Bordeaux wine producer found in the Margaux appellation in Bordeaux, France. The Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855 rates Chateau Palmer as a Third Growth, and to no surprise given the consistent output of top quality fine wines.

Chateau Palmer has been managed by Thomas Duroux since the year 2004; the vineyard spans over 52 hectares with a grape selection of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot.

Chateau Palmer has been in production of a second label since 1998, called Alter Ego de Palmer. This second label employs a different process (and grape proportions) of wine making than the primary wine, however is made from the same terroirs. The result has been a serious decline in quantity of Chateau Palmer produced; from 20,000 cases down to 11,000 – 12,000 cases, per year.
