2015 Paloumey, Haut-Médoc (Pre-Arrival)
This is a bold, fruity wine, with structured tannins and ripe berry fruits. There is a succulent, juicy character that adds to the richness of the wine, yet remains taut come the finish with balanced acidity. (RV)
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.
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. (AG)
Always a great wine here. Their best since 2009?
