Château Palmer Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2009 (1500ml)

$749

This has such class and power. Aromas of blueberries and blackberries, with hints of violets. Full-bodied, with polished tannins and a juicy finish. Solid and extremely pretty. Fabulous finish... James Suckling

This was Cabernet No. 4 in the lineup of 9 tasted blind and my 3rd highest pointed wine of the 8 Cabernets. Dark red with ripe red and black fruits showing the warmth of the vintage Rich, succulent and delicious on the palate of profound intensity. Fluid persistent fine tannins. This will have a very long life. Next in 5 years if I can keep my hands off it. I have 4 left. Maybe one every 5 years for the next 20 years

Mother Mary of God! Just give me the bottle and a crazy straw. I want all my wine to taste this way. The nose is; ruby and velvety elegance. Creamy, candied, ripe; dark currants, blackberries, black raspberries, dark cherries, black plum & poached strawberries. Red licorice, candied, bright, florals for days. Dry crushed rocks, limestone, light, round granite, black licorice, sweet tarriness, expresso roast, dry leather, cedar, dry stems, vanilla, dark chocolate, caramel, cinnamon, light clove & nutmeg, beautiful, soft, herbaceous notes with crazy beautiful fields of; red, purple and blue flowers. The body is full, round and the definition of elegance. The dark, tarry tannins are well rounded and have baby teeth. The structure, tension, length and balance are perfectly knitted together. Magnificent! Creamy, candied, ripe; dark currants, blackberries, black raspberries, dark cherries, black plum & poached strawberries. Red licorice, candied, bright, florals for days. Dry crushed rocks, limestone, light, round granite, black licorice, sweet tarriness, expresso roast, dark, intense, spice with palate heat, dry leather, cedar, dry stems, vanilla, dark chocolate, caramel, cinnamon, light clove & nutmeg, saline, dry tobacco with ash, beautiful, soft, herbaceous notes with crazy fields of; red, purple and blue flowers. The acidity is round-elegant and like a warm shower. The finish is simply a forget about it experience. It is gorgeous & sexy and a wine I will never forget. This is a 100 point wine in short order. Don’t be foolish enough to open a bottle now unless you have at least 3-5 more. You’ll be robbing yourself of heaven. Photos of; Chateau Palmer, their barrel room, a photo of their vineyard soil structure-if you didn’t know where all that earthiness comes from, a picture is worth a thousand words and their tasting room.

Palmer always makes me weak in the knees even if I am not a Bordeaux guy. 09 is showing surprisingly well

This ‘09 was way better than the Pichon Lalande. Classic Bordeaux nose. Hugely concentrated. Lead, minerality, black fruit and some currant. Incredibly smooth. Great balance.
