Palmer 2020


Case Format: 6x75cl

Max score: 98.0

One of the leading estates in Margaux, Château Palmer has been creating superb wines for over two centuries. Ranked as a third growth in the 1855 classification, Palmer creates some of the best wines in all of Bordeaux, and rival the outstanding wines of their illustrious neighbour, Château Margaux. Their 66 hectares of vineyard are situated on a plateau of gravel, sand and clay soils and are planted with Merlot (c.47%), Cabernet Sauvignon (c.47%) and Petit Verdot (c.6%). Château Palmer is aged for 20-22 months in 50% new French oak barrels. From between 2008-2013 Palmer made the transition to biodynamic farming, which has seen a reduction in sulphur added throughout the vinification process. In turn their recent wines are teaming with freshness, whilst still retaining the richness and complexity that is typically associated with Château Palmer.

The 2020 Palmer, composed of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 48% Merlot, and 4% Petit Verdot, is deep garnet-purple in color. It is completely shut down on the nose to begin, needing a lot of patient coaxing to bring out scents of preserved cherries, creme de cassis, blueberry compote, and cedar chest, followed by wafts of lilacs, clove oil, and fertile loam. The medium to full-bodied palate delivers mouth-coating black fruit preserves layers with a rock-solid, grainy texture and just enough freshness, finishing long with loads of savory and earthy nuances.

James Lawther MW

48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 48% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot. Cask sample. The Merlot provides the broad sweep and touch of sweetness on entry, the Cabernet the fine but punchy tannins that drive the wine. Lots of life and persistence, the tannins fine-grained and fresh. Clear potential. (JL)
