Ch. Palmer Historical XIXth Century Blend L. 2013 75ccl
Tasting note :
“First made in 2004, the Chateau Palmer Historical XIXth Century Wine is a two-region blend, not a “Bordeaux wine” per AOC regulations. The mix includes 42.5% each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from the Chateau Palmer estate vineyards. The other 15% is Syrah taken from the Rhone Valley.
Because of the regional and varietal mix, Historical XIXth Century Wine is not labeled as Bordeaux but simply Vin. For the same legal reasons, the name Chateau Palmer, the picture of their chateau does not appear on the front label and the wine is not vintage dated. Vintage can be determined by the lot number on the bottom of the bottle. For example, L20.13 reflects the 2013 vintage. Medium bodied, soft textured, fresh and spicy, with fruit that shows the red side of the vintage, this is the perfect vintage for adding Syrah, as it added density and a peppery complexity to the wine.” Producer’s note
