Palmer has fully embraced bio-dynamic production, 2016 being its third vintage to be certified as such. The upside is enhanced brightness of fruit and purity of acidity, the downside in 2016 being the significant reduction in yield. The style though has stayed true to the Palmer traditions, and faithful to its vision for the Margaux appellation. This means the silkiest of textures, with profound, fine fruit, extraordinary perfume and the greatest finesse.
In 2016, Cabernet Sauvignon represents 47% of the blend, Merlot also 47% and Petit Verdot 6%. Colour is deeply purple, the nose being concentrated, very fine and floral. The palate shows outstanding purity and freshness, with rich black fruit character. The texture is astonishingly beautiful, being silky and suave. This is one of the great wines of the vintage, it has tremendous depth, superfine structure and great length (for drinking 2028-2050+).
