Der Mehltau-Befall und dem gleichzeitigen Festhalten an den biodynamischen Prinzipien des Château führt zu Mini-Mengen auf Château Palmer. Elf Hektoliter pro Hektar führen zu höchster Konzentration von Frucht, Fülle und Schmelz. Dabei eine verführerische Frische und fantastisch eingebundene Tannine - ein Wein für die Ewigkeit! Falstaff: 100/100 Punkte »The sophistic monster, höchster Tanningehalt, Orange Mehltau nach dem 5. Juli 11 hl. Tiefdunkles Rubingranat, violette Reflexe, zarte Randaufhellung. Floral unterlegtes intensives dunkles Beerenkonfit, reife Kirschen, ein Hauch von vollreifen Feigen, kandierte Orangen, nuancenreiches Bukett. Kraftvoll, sehr saftig, extraktsüße Textur, präsente Tannine, zarter Nougat, mineralisch, große Länge, die grandiosen Tannine vermitteln ein zusätzliches Frischegefühl.« Wine Spectator: 97-100/100 Punkte »The level of glycerine sets this apart, giving the cascade of plum, currant, blackberry and black cherry fruit extra oomph, while seeming to heighten the purity at the same time. Beautiful violet, incense and juniper notes flash in the background. This is packed with iron-laced grip, but remains seamless and extremely long. I suspect this will be one of the most talked-about wines of the vintage.« Decanter: 99/100 Punkte »Possibly the most talked about estate in the vintage, with its mildew-induced 11hl/ha yields making waves all the way back at harvest time. They made it through though, and have made an exceptional wine that will clearly be discussed and enjoyed for years to come. There's no denying that the yields have had an impact - even in the colour you see a rich, velvety density with the violet edging that suggests a good pH (it's 3.83, so a touch higher than usual). There is a stunning sweetness to the cassis and bilberry fruits, and it retains the finesse and floral aromatics of Palmer even with the concentration, complexity and depth on show here. It also has the signature of the vintage, and despite the volume of tannins it feels silky and seductive, and you wonder if it will close down at all. This certainly has a long life ahead of it. Sadly there is no Alter Ego in 2018, for the first time since it was created in 1998, with the production of the grand vin down by about 50% on a normal year. Harvest ran from 13 September to 15 October, and 90% of production went into the grand vin due to the low yields. No sulphur was added to the fruit until after malo, and it is aged in 70% new oak, already barely discernible. Thomas Duroux said, by the way, that if mildew pressure happened again to this extent, he would treat despite his strong commitment to biodynamics. Let's hope it doesn't come to that. 98-100 points. Drinking Window 2028 - 2044« Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 97-99/100 Punkte »The 2018 Palmer is composed of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot. Grapes were harvested September 13 to October 15, and the wine has a 3.83 pH and 14.3% alcohol. Very deep purple-black in color, the nose is a little reticent to begin, but with coaxing, it slowly emerges to show fragrant violets, underbrush, mossy bark and iron ore with exponentially growing notions of crème de cassis, Black Forest cake, plum preserves, hoisin, Christmas cake and red roses with wafts of dusty earth, Indian spices and cracked black pepper. Full-bodied, concentrated and downright powerful in the mouth, it has a solid structure of firm, wonderfully plush tannins and masses of fragrant accents, finishing very long and very spicy. By the time I finished tasting this, the nose had exploded in this fragrant bomb of fruit, earth and floral notions. This is one of those 2018 wines that has a beguiling brightness that comes from the many floral, spice and mineral accents among all that rich fruit. WOW!« Wine Enthusiast: 97-99/100 Punkte »Barrel Sample. Dense and concentrated, this is a powerfully rich wine. It has a velvet texture that masks the tannins, which are solid, precise and impressive in structure. It is a great wine that comes from a very low-yield crop and it will age quite well.« Weinwisser: 19,5/20 »40 % Merlot, 53 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 7 % Petit Verdot, 11 hl/ha, Produktion nur 6.000 12er-Kisten = 1/3 einer normalen Produktion. Kein Zweitwein Alter Ego. Undurchsichtiges Purpur mit schwarzer Mitte. Betörendes Parfüm nach reifen Pflaumen, Schattenmorellensaft und Cassisgelee. Im zweiten Ansatz duftige Veilchen, Wildkirschen und reife Waldhimbeeren. Am Gaumen mit seidiger Textur und perfekt ausgereiften, polierten Tanninen, cremig und elegant. Im aromatischen, katapultartigen Finale eine Explosion von Heidelbeeren, Lakritze und Nougatpralinen gepaart mit Eleganz und perfekter Präzision. Ein Meisterwerk aus Margaux, dass ich bisher noch nicht erlebt habe. Die Frage wird sein, wie sich dieser Wein entwickeln wird. Dieser wird, neben Pontet-Canet, einer der am heissesten diskutierten Weine sein! Trinken 2028 bis 2050« James Suckling: 94-95/100 Punkte »It is the essence of cabernet fruit with density that is so thick that it has the texture of grape puree. Full body and melted tannins that give the wine a sense of velvet. Very soft and juicy. With air, it goes to bright, crushed black currants. Tar. Fresh tannins give it energy. I have never tasted anything like this in all my 38 years as a wine critic in Bordeaux. From tiny berries of cabernet sauvignon (53 per cent), 40 per cent merlot and seven per cent petit verdot.« Vinum: 18/20 Punkte »Zurückhaltende Aromatik; ungemein voller Bau, aussergewöhnliche Qualität der Tannine, extrem langes Finale von frischen und getrockneten Beeren, grosszügig auch, doch ohne allzu massig zu wirken. 2028 bis 2040« Bitte beachten Sie die Sonderbedingungen der Subskription in unseren AGB.

So how can we grasp the concept of organizational culture in an actionable way? What is the essence of an agile culture? What are the elements? How is this culture formed and developed?

Here, it dives into organizational psychology and translates the insights into practical advice. It identifies the core elements of agile organizational cultures and fills the core elements with field-proven tips , tools and methods, and delivers illustrative examples. This book was created on the base of 15 years of working hands-on with and in organizations, expert-interviews, a broad review and analysis of agile transformations and psychological science. Puckett provides a new perspective on organizational culture. For it is in our hands to shape the culture: As individual, as team, as leader. We are organizational culture. This atlas invites to experiment and create, and shows illustrative, how organizations can master the agile transformation.
