Château Palmer Margaux 2017

External Review:

This is very solid for the vintage with blackberry dark chocolate and black currants. Full body with firm and chewy tannins and a juicy finish. Muscular wine for the vintage. 51% cabernet sauvignon and 49% merlot. 3 800 cases of this wine compared to 9 000 in a normal year. James Suckling.

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

A blend of 49% Merlot and 51% Cabernet Sauvignon the Palmer 2013 certainly has more fruit intensity on the nose compared to the Alter Ego. A little more opulent there is a sense of plushness typical of Palmer with oodles of black cherries cassis and blueberries - hints of dried violet. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins. The acidity is nicely judged with a fine masculine swarthy finish that shows more length than the Alter Ego. This is a good effort from the Palmer team - what you

This is a beautifully crafted wine with red fruits a touch of black currant great acidity and dense structure. A blend of half-and-half Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon it shows both weight and a great lift. Wine Enthusiast.

A wine that has density structure and firm tannins with touches of wood. At this stage it is solid and impressive; and the tannins draw the great fresh fruit into the heart of the wine. - R.V. Wine Enthusiast.

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

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
