2001 Ch. Palmer, Margaux

Ch. Palmer, Margaux
This wine has a beautiful perfume of primary woodland black and red fruits, its seductive aroma of polished Bordeaux just emerging from its shell. Cool and composed on the palate there's a beguiling sweetness too that is so typical of Margaux, and indeed Ch. Palmer itself. This wine is elegance and precision personified. Decant for an hour before serving at 17 to 19 degrees, which will help to preserve its lovely freshness.  
(Simon Staples - Fine Wine Director - April 2011)Château Palmer

Ch. Palmer, Margaux
A virile, muscular effort for this estate, the 2001 Palmer (a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, and 5% Petit Verdot) exhibits a saturated purple color to the rim. Although closed and backward, it is surprisingly powerful, layered, and formidably endowed, revealing hints of charcoal, black fruits, earth, and underbrush. There is a lot going on in this offering, but it needs 5-7 years of cellaring to resolve its high tannin. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2022.

Ch. Palmer, Margaux
Tasted blind at Bordeaux Index’s 10-Year On horizontal. A deep garnet core, this has an introverted nose at first but it opens up in the glass to reveal cedar and cigar box aromas with just a hint of black olive interlacing the ripe black fruits. The fineness of the tannins is undeniable the fruit moving into secondary stage with hints of dried herbs and tobacco. Very good structure although it does not quite have the gravitas on the finish. It is more masculine and almost Saint-Julien like in its personality. Fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sublime Tasted at horizontal event held in one of London's finest establishments in Notting Hill. One of my favourites of the night, alongside the 2000. 2005 was a different animal (beast) and too too young. The '01 ,however, was singing and is a claret lovers wine. Paired extremely well with the veal course that night. 30 September 2013
