Chateau Palmer Bordeaux Futures 2008

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Offers dark plum mulled currant and blackberry notes with flashes of roasted apple wood and maduro tobacco plus cocoa and espresso. There s nicely rounded flesh and a long integrated finish that has some extra grip. Clearly apart from the Margaux pack in 2008. Best from 2013 through 2019.-J.M. Wine Spectator.

Chateau Palmer:
A grand cru is a matter of origin in time as in space. The Château Palmer style is embedded in history and dedicated to the expression of its terroir. It is a style beyond fashion and trends.

A grand cru is a matter of origin in time as in space. The Château Palmer style is embedded in history and dedicated to the expression of its terroir. It is a style beyond fashion and trends. To experience its timelessness, there is no better way than to taste it. Again and again. Finesse and elegance, typical of the great wines of Margaux, are the permanent trademarks of Château Palmer, characterized by the softness and refinement of silk, the warmth of velvet, and the leather of noblesse. The unusual combination of grape varieties – as much Merlot as Cabernet Sauvignon and a small amount of Petit Verdot – gives Château Palmer a bouquet of extraordinary complexity, with fruit, flowers, and spice wrapped in a fleshy and generous structure. The subtle balance between aromatic richness and powerful yet always restrained tannins makes Palmer a wine of incomparable charm, even when very young. Its length leaves the persistent memory of a heady mix of sensations and emotions. Long barrel ageing is essential for Château Palmer to give full expression to its gravely soil and reveal all its body and flesh. This ageing continues very slowly for many years and even decades in the bottle. Your patience will be generously rewarded when you taste an old vintage. It exudes a particularly rich and complex aromatic finish, sometimes exotic, always unforgettable. Wine tasting is a meeting of two living bodies as they surrender to each other, the human being and the wine. Tasters always have expectations from the wine they choose: good wines meet them; Château Palmer exceeds them. Read less

51% Merlot; 41% Cabernet Sauvignon; 8% Petite Verdot. Pleasant plum notes highlighted by spearmint and licorice. Solid middle weight tannins come off sharp and rough. David Derby.

Full medium ruby. Inviting almost liqueur-like aromas of dark raspberry sexy spices and tobacco lifted by a floral quality. Broad and plush but precise and fine-grained with a layered texture to the concentrated flavors of red and dark berries and dark chocolate. Really builds toward the back but the wine s compelling thickness of fruit is nicely leavened by sneaky minerality. Finishes with noble tannins and captivating energy and perfume. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
