One of the all-time great Palmer's, this wine seems to go from strength to strength. A deep garnet hue, deeper in colour than the Palmer 1990. A lovely nose of blackberry, cloves, tobacco and cedar mixed with a little freshly tilled earth. The palate is medium-bodied yet powerful, well-knit and harmonious. Blackberry and cedar, smoke with a touch of leather. Just a little dryness on the finish, though that simply leaves the palate fresh and begging for more. Superb length, I believe that this is a superior wine to the Palmer 1983... Neal Martin - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

#1989 #ChateauPalmer #Margaux #MahlerBesse Yummm :) Violets draw you in on the nose & then the journey begins... Tart Blackberry, Cassis, & Boysenberry... Earthy leather & tobacco, strong salinity, clove spice & licorice... #Sexy Silky, powerful... One of their best vintages and I can't wait to taste it again in another 10 years.

Very, very promising. Already very good but with some more years in the cellar this will kick ass!

Somewhat off. Brett or VA - not sure but clearly off. Youthful mouth but hard to get past the aroma.
