Re: Chateau Palmer 2016 for $274, what the what?

I got another 4 bottles of marchand tawse clos de ormes 2015 (which is an absolutely fantastic wine) and a bottle of bedrock 2018 OVZ with the code for < 250 shipped with the code, crazy.

Nice weeknight wine, but hardly more interesting than decent Bourgogne. Disappointing for the vintage and level. Easy to drink, that’s about it. Not getting the characteristics the positive CT TNs noted.

Btw this was the rose. Envoyer had an outrageous price on it last year, but I only got 2 halves, unfortunately. Lowest I see it now in half bottle is $149, which might still be a deal given the quality. I’d put it up against grand marque rose easily.
