Château Paloumey 2018 - Primeurs
* Required fields
I will remember this day of July 15th 2018 all my life ... I must say my feelings are mixed: first the joy, following the victory of the French soccer team in the final of the World Cup, then the confusion when I realized I received so many texts and calls during the game. Indeed, shortly after 17:00, the weather was unleashed and hail ravaged our vineyard.
We said goodbye to almost 60% of our production in just a few minutes. The 2018 vintage will also be recorded as historical because of the high mildew pressure.
2018 was the second year of our official transition to organic certification, this vintage really challenged the nerves of our vineyard team! Fortunately, the quality of the 2018 harvest is exceptional despite the very low yields. Harmony, balance and structure are the signature of this vintage.
For our Primeurs 2018, a minimum order of 12 bottles is required.(1 Magnum = 2 bottles). You can mix 6 bottles of Château Paloumey 2018 with 6 bottles of Château La Garricq 2018 or with 6 bottles of Château La Bessane 2018.
Warning: Last items in stock!
Pierre Cazeneuve on Château Paloumey 2018:
"Red fruits aromas accompanied by menthol and spicy notes. In the mouth, we find this fresh and crunchy fruit again highlighted by chocolate flavors. Fine tannins and a very nice length."
