Tasted ex-chateau and single blind in Southwold. Two bottles of Chateau Palmer were opened. It has a very sophisticated, but slightly broody bouquet with blackberry cassis, graphite and a little more earthiness than I recall. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine delineation, tightly knit with superb focus and sense of harmony. Crisp, sinewy and multi-faceted, this is a great Palmer for the vintage and a serious contender for the best wine of the appellation. Bravo. Tasted January 2012. Neal Martin

Tasting note


The 2008 Chateau Palmer is a testament to the harmony of power and elegance. With a deep, dark ruby hue, this wine exudes intense aromas of new oak and coffee, which gracefully give way to a core of dark black currant and berry fruit. The palate is embraced by elegant, fine tannins and a lively acidity that brings forth an earthy character. The wine's depth and intensity are remarkable, presenting a structure that is both fine and elegant. The finish is long, ensuring a lasting impression. This vintage is a true expression of the Margaux terroir, showcasing the meticulous care and devotion that goes into its creation.
