Bordeaux 2020: Château Palmer and Château Leoville Las Cases
22 June 2021

Sadly, we were unable to assess Palmer 2020, their policy is to only taste at the chateau. If current form is anything to go by, this will be one of the most seductive and profound wines available from the 2020 vintage. Up and down the Medoc, we have heard how exhilarating the Merlots were. Palmer is unquestionably one of the best exponents of this variety, it’s almost a nod towards Pomerol in this enclave of Margaux. The critics who were able to taste in situ are all extremely enamoured, describing a wine of great class, power and potential. Fans of this great chateau can be assured that this is another luxuriant and unique expression of this exceptional terroir. We also missed out on Leoville Las Cases, whose samples policy mirrors Palmer’s. Las Cases is often one of our favourite wines of the Medoc, with its classical profile and imperious structure. Their enviable clos is arguably the finest terroir in the Left Bank, capable of producing wines to rival its neighbour, Château Latour. Lisa Perrotti-Brown describes the 2020 as “jaw-dropping”. Antonio Galloni adds, “Readers with classically leaning palates will flip out over the 2020.” It promises to rank amongst recent greats like 2016, 2018 and 2019.    Read More
