The international trade is offering the wine for £2,880 per 12×75, 26.6% more than the current Market Price of the 2019.
Palmer did not send samples to critics so only those critics located in Bordeaux will have tasted and scored the wine.
James Lawther MW awarded the wine 18+/20 points. He found, “lots of life and persistence, the tannins fine-grained and fresh. Clear potential”.
Jane Anson awarded the wine 97-points, saying, “the aromatics grab hold straight away”. Jean-Marc Quarin gave 98-points.
Prices for Château Palmer are most closely correlated to Benchmark Critic scores (where one is available).
Today’s release at £2,880 per 12×75 would need a Benchmark Critic score of 98 or higher to be Fair Value.
