Description

“From a grand estate, whose owners also have vines in Margaux and Moulis, this wine is well proportioned and dense. Rich tannins and concentration are just part of what will become a generous, full wine. With great black-currant fruit and acidity to match, this structured wine will need to age. Drink from 2024.” (4/2018) Wine Enthusiast

“Violets and cassis married with rich, dark berries and hints of iodine, all leading to a palate that has smooth, layered tannins in pastry-like mode. Rich plums to close. Drink or hold.” (2/2018) James Suckling

“The 2015 Paloumey is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Merlot. It has a perfumed, quite floral nose with rose petals infusing the red berry fruit, the oak nicely integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe red berry fruit, a gentle grip in the mouth, fresh and vibrant with a dash of spice on the muscular finish. It will mellow during élevage and turn into a thoroughly enjoyable Haut-Médoc.” (4/2016) Neal Martin

“From the southern part of the Médoc (which is the sweet spot in 2015), the 2015 Château Paloumey offers a kiss of oak in its ripe red and black fruits, lead pencil shavings, cedar and saddle leather aromas and flavors. This ripe, medium-bodied 2015 has beautiful fruit, a balanced texture, light tannin, and a great finish, and it’s unquestionably one of the many hidden gems in the vintage. It has the class and depth to keep for at least 7-8 years.” (11/2017) Jeb Dunnuck

“The 2015 Paloumey is one of the better Haut-Médocs I tasted. Dark cherry, plum, tobacco and blood orange flesh out in this attractive, succulent red. The creamy, inviting finish adds to the wine’s up-front appeal.” (4/2016) Antonio Galloni for Vinous
