Very pure aromas of warm cassis kirsch and dried lavender over a touch of truffles and game. The power of the palate is in the taut structure of medium + fine grained tannins and medium to high acidity fleshed-out by generous rich fruit. Very long finish. Beautiful balance. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Big and powerful with loads of fruit and chewy tannins. Still just a baby. Full-bodied with lots of structure and a long long finish. Give it time.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2010. 14500 cases made. -JS

This is one of the best Palmer’s of the decade. The nose is generous with raspberry, strawberry and that touch of lemongrass noted on previous occasions.

The nose is generous with raspberry, strawberry and that touch of lemongrass noted on previous occasions. The palate is full-bodied and precocious, fleshy, lots of stuffing and rounded in texture. Good depth with a savoury second half, nice grippy tannins with a raspberry and cooked meats towards the finish. On this showing the wine could actually benefit from further bottle ageing, but this remains a “solid” long-term Palmer. Impressive, but pleasure will come later. Drink 2010-2020+

Soft sweet and lush with an enticing layered texture and plenty of body. Currently more expressive in the middle palate than the '96 but not quite as sharply delineated; conveys an impression of lower acidity. Finishes with very good length and even ripe tannins. This gentle ripe seductive wine seems virtually unaffected by the bottling.
