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 Margaux wine exudes robust aromas of new oak and coffee, underpinned by a rich tapestry of dark black currant and berry fruit. The palate is graced with elegant, fine tannins and a lively acidity that elevates the concentrated fruit, adding an earthy complexity. The wine's structure is refined, boasting depth and intensity, culminating in a lingering, sophisticated finish. Perfectly balanced, this vintage is a true expression of the Margaux terroir.
