Another big moment in the 2019 campaign this morning as Chateau Palmer 2019 release their wine at £999 (6×75),  31% below their 2018 wine. This is great news for the campaign as they are following suit with Pontet Canet who released at 30% below their 2018 last week.

Volumes released are reportedly small, with allocations based upon last year. Today’s release received 96-98 points from Jean-Marc Quarin, and 98 points from Jane Anson (Decanter). For Anson, Palmer 2019 is ‘up there with the very best vintages of this estate’.

We expect further critic reviews over the next couple of days.

Chateau Palmer, located in the centre of Margaux and next door to Chateau Margaux, converted to biodynamic farming in 2014 with the average vine age now at 40-45 years. The final blend in 2019 is 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot.

We have taken our full allocations from last year – and are also looking at further availability for a cracking investment opportunity.
