Wine Comments
Wonderful ! For 50 year old its unbelievable. The colour, nose and taste is like a new one with overtones of forest floor, mushroom, and liquorice. Generous, warm aftertaste. Showing better than the 1969.


The Domaine
Towards the demise of the Napolean era in 1814, Englishman Major General Charles Palmer crossed over to France and using a huge amount of capital, acquired the Chateau Gasque. This was the beginning of Chateau Palmer. The chateau then changed hands to banking family, the Pereire brothers and further development was carried out. However, during the Great Depression of the 1930s, the chateau was relinquished and in 1938 it was bought by a few families from Bordeaux, England and the Netherlands. For these families it was worth the political risk acquiring the Palmer vineyard as they continued aiming for consistent improvement in quality. As a result of this unyielding effort, the wonderful terroir of Palmer bloomed and a magnificent wine was born.

Press
This is a little cloudy, and the colour has aged a lot. The dominant aromas are of dried orange peel, fruit in alcohol and Havana tobacco. The texture in the mouth is satin-like with very intense evolved fruit flavours. This has some flesh to it, and the acidity is alive and present. The finish is long and finely spiced.The Wine Review of France, 06/01/2001

Le 1967 de Palmer est une révélation de ce millésime… un vin qui, loin d'être puissant et massif, incarnait au contraire la quintessence de l 'élégance… Il s'est toujours révélé charmeur, léger, mais délicieux. Il ne serait pas conseillé d'attendre ce millésime plus avant, mais je suis certain que les plus grands noms, tels …. et peut-être même Palmer, se garderont 5 à 10 ans encore.The Wine Advocate, Robert Parker, 12/01/1996

Parmi les meilleures bouteilles, un très agréable 67. Michael Broadbent, 12/01/1990
