Tasting notes:
'Still tight, with a core of black currant, blackberry and plum fruit flavors that is quite youthful, while hints of dried anise, tobacco and singed alder are starting to peek through on the finish. There's a really vibrant iron note cutting through the finish too. Hold off for now.--Blind 2000 Bordeaux retrospective (December 2015). Best from 2018 through 2028.' – James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 96/100

‘Tasted at the Château Palmer vertical in London, the 2000 Château Palmer was closed for a number of years, but it appears to be finally opening. Deep in colour, there remains a slight broodiness on the nose, although it loses its inhibitions and develops potent blackberry, strawberry and mint aromas, perhaps just a smudge of camphor. It is unashamedly rich on the entry: intense and vibrant with layers of black cherry and cassis fruit pierced by a fine line of acidity. This millennial tightens everything up towards the, finish whereupon it reverts to something much more classic in style, long and tensile. It does not quite occupy the same class as the 2005 or the imperial 2010, but it certainly has long-term potential. My advice? Give it another 4-5 years in the cellar. Tasted May 2015.’ – Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, 94/100

About Château Palmer:
Château Palmer belonged to the Pereire family from 1843 to 1938. During that time the château underwent major improvements to modernize the estate and reconstruct the vineyards. In 1938, the château was sold to 4 wealthy Bordeaux families. After time, two of the families – the Mahler-Besse and the Sichel family – bought out the other two families, and to this day they are still the two major shareholders.

Château Palmer follows a more natural farming approach on their 66-hectare property. Their aim is to recreate a living agricultural organism, and they do so by allowing humans, animals and nature to work together.
