Blackcurrants, violets, lead pencil shavings and a touch of minerality all emerge from this rich, massively concentrated Margaux that still glides across the palate with no sense of weight or heaviness. It’s perfectly balanced, has a ripe, hedonistic core of fruit, as well as integrated acidity. It’s a dream today, but is going to have 30-40 years or more of prime drinking.

But that is only the beginning. Once you taste the wine and you feel those sensuous textures as the wine glides across your palate, you know this is special. The wine has more than ample density, but it is not heavy. The lift in the mid-palate keeps all those layers of ripe, dark red, earthy fruits alive. Vibrant, elegant and silky, the end note remains with you for at least 50 seconds or more. If you like more youthful fruit in your wine, you can drink this now. If you want to enjoy the wine as it heads to its peak, give it another decade of rest. This should age effortlessly for decades.

Full-bodied, rich and decadently seductive in the mouth, the generous fruit is superbly framed with plush tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and mineral laced. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

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. Try in 2020.

It is dense of course but this density is balanced with great elegance blackberry fruits sweetness and final juicy acidity. The wine is structured a powerhouse of concentration while preserving this complete style.

The palate is rich too, with an incredible texture and a smoky edge which comes out on the mid-palate. It's so young still, it will go and go and lives up to some of the best Palmers on record. It's not as elegant as the 2005 or 2015 perhaps, but the generous fruits are matched pace for pace by the natural tension and tannic grip. It's just beginning to bed down, never mind open up. Very good quality.

This still feels very backward. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine bead of acidity. Superb mineral tension with great precision towards the finish. Thomas Duroux crafted a superlative Palmer in 2009, one of the finest in recent years. Tasted at BI Wines & Spirits' Ten Year On tasting. -- Neal Martin

The Palmer '09 has a really vivacious, sumptuous bouquet - superb extraction here. Perhaps it is slightly modern in style with noticeable creamy new oak that needs to be subsumed. The palate is medium-bodied with blackberry, bay leaf, sea salt and tar. The length is impressive, maintaining superb finesse and length. I correctly guessed this as Palmer - sticks out like a sore thumb!

This is on another level from most in the appellation, with gorgeous layers of warm currant confiture, smoldering tobacco, licorice snap, warm paving stone and anise all framed by tarry but integrated grip.

Stays sleek and well-defined through the finish. Should age beautifully. Best from 2015 through 2030. 9,500 cases made. — JM
