Chateau Palmer Margaux 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Back-to-back very great vintages are hardly a frequent occurrence. In terms of quality, 2010 benefited from exceptionally favourable weather, like the 2009 vintage.

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

From an assemblage of 54% Merlot 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and the remainder Petit Verdot the wine reached 14.5% alcohol. The beautiful deep purple color is almost opaque. Floral aromas are complicated with cassis coffee smoke truffle earth and boysenberry scents which jump from the glass. With intense purity tannins that feel like hand polished silk and a beautiful pure long harmonious rich finish there is not a hard edge to be found. This opulent wine is a treat for the senses.

Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. The Chateau Palmer 2010 has a more extrovert bouquet than its peers with blackberry and raspberry fruit interlaced with camphor - exuberant and showy. The palate is medium-bodied with silky smooth tannins. There is a lot of extraction here plenty of volume with a thickly layered almost mellifluous finish that belies that structure underneath. There is a touch of Szechuan pepper lingering on the aftertaste. This is a very assured and sumptuo

54% merlot 40% cabernet sauvignon and 6% petit verdot. In terms of technical analysis this is definitely a year of extremes for Palmer and as such this wine will not be for everybody. Aromas of mineral mocha plum boysenberry and pepper lead to truffle and roasted espresso bean. The full bodied palate offers lots of fine grain tannins and good acidity. Gorgeous flavors of mulling spice hoisin and scorched earth complemented by anise and crushed flowers. The finish is very long smooth and
