Château Palmer in the Margaux appellation is one of the greatest estates in all of Bordeaux. Planted to 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot, with an average vine age of 35 years, this 3rd Growth estate is known for producing compelling Bordeaux wines with intoxicating aromatics in a rich, world-class, traditional style. When visiting the cellars of Palmer, one is struck by just how glorious these wines are when you taste vintage after vintage and each one is sensationally delicious, velvety and pure. 

We positively love the 2010 vintage in Bordeaux, and Margaux in particular. The 2010 vintage is a modern classic across the board. In Margaux, growers experienced perfect ripeness of both the Cabernet Sauvignon  and Merlot. The light, gravelly soils provided the appellation's notable elegance, and the depth of flavor assure a very good future. A very successful vintage, with the cru classés at the top of their form.

While outwardly this wine is generous and opulent with great juicy sweetness, the core is structured and powerful. The wine is concentrated and complex, with dark tannins and a brooding, dense texture. This is a wine with a long-lived future.

Tasted at the Château Palmer vertical in London, the estate team regard the 2010 Château Palmer as their best since the 1983. This showing did nothing to suggest otherwise. It offers stunning precision on the nose: incredibly fresh and vibrant with the same spine-tingling level of mineralité as the 2005. What they both share is a Pauillac-like graphite seam that runs from start to finish. Like the 2005, there is a beguiling symmetry here, more focused and linear than the sumptuous 2009, yet with sensational length that makes you wonder what on Earth it will taste like in another 10-15 years. I would keep this in your cellar for another decade at least and it may well merit a higher score down the line. Tasted May 2015.

This is riveting, with terrific tarry grip coursing underneath layers of smoldering bay leaf, warm plum confiture, freshly brewed espresso, dark cassis and well-steeped black tea. The charcoal and tobacco backdrop is gorgeous and should move forward through the core of fruit over time. Be patient though, as the structure is ironclad. This will really be electric once mature. Best from 2017 through 2040. 8,500 cases made.
