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.

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.
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. (NM)
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.
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)
