“There is no other wine like Palmer in Bordeaux” - Antonio Galloni (Vinous)

“There is no other wine like Palmer in Bordeaux”. Antonio Galloni (Vinous) beschrijft waarom Château Palmer, met 98-100 punten, méér is dan een Margaux. Het is een van de bekendste wijnen die de regio voortbrengt, de ideale diepte-investering en een droomwijn voor liefhebbers: een evergreen van Bordeaux.

Alles is bij Palmer aanwezig voor wijnen van onderscheidende kwaliteit. Alle percelen worden onafhankelijk (en biodynamisch avant la lettre) onderhouden en gevinifieerd in de kelders van topniveau, waarvan de renovatie dit jaar is afgerond.

In vergelijking met de meeste andere Margaux is Palmer aromatischer en krachtiger van aard. Die charme zit deels in de hoeveelheid cabernet sauvignon (50%), wat de wijn een aromatische finesse en gelaagdheid heeft. Die complexiteit wordt ondersteund door merlot (46%), die op zijn beurt zorgt voor hoge fruitintensiteit en verleidelijke zachtheid. Tenslotte wordt petit verdot (4%) gebruikt voor kruidigheid, kracht en kleur. James Suckling noemt die combinatie “ethereal and cloud-like”.

Als u één wijn van 2023 in de kelder wil hebben, dan is Château Palmer uw wijn. Het is een iconisch château uit een verfijnde jaargang, met de hoogste scores van recensenten en enorm potentieel voor de lange termijn. Neem het desnoods niet van ons aan, maar van de wijncritici: Neal Martin noemde het “one of the most long-term, serious wines on the Left Bank”. Voor zijn collega Antonio Galloni was het net zo duidelijk: “If I could pick only one wine to own from the 2023 vintage, Palmer might very well be it.”

A breathtaking wine, the 2023 Palmer is sensational. Inky, rich and explosive, the 2023 is a real head-turner. Readers will find an extroverted, dense Palmer that is immediately captivating. Here, too, the balance is mind-blowing. Ample and resonant, the 2023 is striking in its beauty. Waves of layered fruit rush out first, building through to the back end with stunning aromatic intensity. There is no other wine like Palmer in Bordeaux. In a lot of ways, it reminds me of a great Pomerol, as heretical as that might sound! If I could pick only one wine to own from the 2023 vintage, Palmer might very well be it.

Violets, tobacco, blackberries, cigar box, spice, and black cherries form the perfume. On the palate, the wine is silky, lush, polished, and fresh. There is length, purity, velvety tannins, and a racy, energetic, fruit-packed finish, with an exotic touch of cardamon in the backend that adds even more of an edge. The almost seamless finish resonates for 50 seconds. The wine blends 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Merlot, and 4% Petit Verdot. 14% ABV, 3.75 pH. The harvest took place September 11 - October 5. Waiting the few extra days in September made the difference in the wine this year. Yields are a scant 32 hectoliters per hectare. Drink from 2029-2065.

The vivid density and structure to this is really captivating, with pure blackcurrant character. Full-bodied with very silky, refined and ultra-fine tannins and an exquisite finish. Caresses every inch of the palate. It's seems like it will be large and overpowering, but it's actually ethereal and cloud-like. The tannin quality is so refined and, in a way, weightless. 50% cabernet sauvignon, 46% merlot and 4% petit verdot.

The 2023 Palmer is opaque purple-black in color. A little broody and subdued to start, notes of tar, damp soil, and crushed rocks soon give way to a core of fresh blackcurrants, wild blueberries, and Morello cherries with a touch of iron ore. The medium-bodied palate delivers bright, shimmery black and red berry flavors with a satiny texture and racy backbone, finishing on a lingering ferrous note. The blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Merlot, and 4% Petit Verdot.

What a Palmer in 2023! Crazy aromatics, full and bright, packed with intense scents of pink and purple flowers, damson fruit - clearly ripe no doubt, but no overt heat with some graphite and liquorice on the nose too and the dried herb Cabernet notes. Rich, layered and voluptuous, one you could use the word opulent to describe, full of flavour and really fruit forward. Not as overtly juicy as some, more harmonious and balanced, the tannins are perfectly integrated with the fruit and acidity with the added plushness that the Merlot gives to the blend. Powered and structured, but less serious than some with great energy, generosity and charm on show in terms of texture but it’s focussed too with a long length. Something very captivating about this. Lots of cool classicism on the finish with a salty, mineral, oyster shell undercurrent. 55% new oak for the first year in barrel then one year in 30hl foudre. 3.75pH. 13% press. 32hl/ha yield.

More reserved and understated than the Alter Ego on the first nose, with touch of gumoke reduction, but it doesn't take long to understand that this Palmer is full of coiled energy and lift. A ton of graphite, crushed rocks, crushed roses and peonies come in waves of aromatics through the palate, along with clearly defined and sculpted blue and red fruits. There is spice too, and a sense of momentum. 32hl/h yield, 55% new oak for ageing during the first year; with the wine then moving in moves into 3000l oak casks for the second year.

The 2023 Palmer represents two-thirds of the crop this year, raised in barrel (50% new) until July, then racked into 3,000-liter foudres for another 12 months. My sample was representative of the new oak ratio. The nose is very intense, as normal, loaded with blackberry, boysenberry, violet and veins of blood orange in the background. Powerful, though not in the same way as the barnstorming 2022, it manages to retain focus. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grip on the entry. This is quite a deep Palmer with touches of licorice-tinged black fruit. It’s more opulent than almost all other Margaux wines this vintage, furnished with black pepper and allspice on the finish. It will require several years in bottle. The 2023 Palmer is one of the most long-term, serious wines on the Left Bank.

Deep dark ruby, opaque core, purple reflections, delicate edge brightening. Delicate mandarin zest, ripe heart cherry, fresh blackberry, delicate hint of liquorice, still somewhat reserved. Complex, powerful, red cherry, ripe, firm tannins, racy acidity, currant touch on the finish, fine herbal savouriness in the aftertaste, lingers, a full-bodied food companion.

Director Thomas Duroux and his team elected to harvest late in pursuit of full maturity, beginning with the Merlot on September 11 and finishing the Cabernet Sauvignon on October 5 to produce a beautiful 2023 Palmer, redolent of cherries, wild berries, rose petals and violets. A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot, it's medium to full-bodied, plush and enveloping, with a cool core of fruit, succulent acids, ultra-refined tannins and a seamless, complete profile.

Gourmand again, like the Alter Ego, but more complexity and depth on the nose. Unctuosity on the mid palate but length and persistence as well. Lovely texture of tannin but definitively structured to age. Drink 2032 - 2050.
