2020 Château Paloumey  (Haut-Médoc) 88

2019 Château Paloumey  (Haut-Médoc) 91

Earthy, dark red fruits, licorice, smoke and a hint of mint garner your attention on the nose. The palate shines with its round, lush, sweet, dark fruits, espresso and bitter chocolate along with blackberries. Give it a few years in the cellar and it will be even better. This is probably the best wine Paloumey has ever produced. 90-92 Pts

2018 Château Paloumey  (Haut-Médoc) 91

With a good depth of color, the wine is round, ripe and loaded with black cherries, currants, blackberries, dark cocoa and earth. Lively, sweet and with good length, this is enjoyable now, but it is going to be even better with a few years of age. 91 Points

Nice, easy drinking Haut Medoc to enjoy on the young side for its soft, ripe, black and red fruits and its earthy, tobacco tint. I'd polish this off before the wine hits its 10th birthday. 87 Points
