Tasting Note:

If Chateau Margaux and Pavillon Rouge are examples of reserved beauty, the wines of Palmer are decadent, hedonistic and aristocratic in an altogether flamboyant, exuberant style. The grand vin tips the scales at 14.5% alcohol, even more than the Alter Ego, but again, the freshness and concentration of fruit mask the alcohol and one is left with a sense of tension, freshness and lift. Produced from 54% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot, the 2010 Palmer is one of the most stylish offerings we have tasted from this estate. The brooding fragrant bouquet exhibits notes of liquorice, savoury earthy notes, flowers, kirsch and tobacco. It is a veritable smorgasbord of flavours. The attack is packed with griotte cherries, crème de mûre, fruits of the forest, cool cassis and soft plums. As one would expect, this is decadent, opulent, sumptuous and very sexy. The flavours are intense and beautifully poised. Palmer have produced a wine of outstanding class, effortless power, wonderful tension and acidity; all wrapped in beautifully crafted tannins. Exquisite!
