2004 3ème Cru Classé Margaux
|Grapes||Cab Franc, Merlot, Cab Sauv|
|Classification||3ème Cru Classé|
Medium colour. Very fruity nose and attack, sweet expression, some of which is coming from the slightly obvious oak. But the fruit is dominant and the whole mouthful is very harmonious, fine, silky and velvety at the same time as being fresh, dry and supple. Lovely but not quite the stuffing for greatness? Very much in the style of classic Palmer though. Rating: 92 L&S (Apr 2005)

This stunning wine is one of the vintage’s great successes. Administrator Thomas Duroux has fashioned a modern day version of Palmer’s brilliant 1966. Displaying a rare combination of power and elegance, this dense purple-colored offering exhibits notes of blackberries, truffles, flowers, incense, and camphor. Long, classic, and medium to full-bodied with stunning texture and richness, this superb effort is a candidate for the finest Margaux of the vintage.

This is a stunning Palmer considering the growing season and for this writer, on par with Chateau Margaux. It has a deep garnet/purple hue. The nose is divine: pure black fruits, bilberry, cedar and a touch of iodine all with fabulous definition. The palate is full-bodied with very fine tannins, modern in style but exuding pedigree and class. Very refined on the finish with just a slight peppery edge. Love this wine, love it!

Deep red. Rich aromas of plum, redcurrant, chocolate and smoke. Sweet, lush and smooth, with a wonderfully fine-grained texture for the year. Highly expressive flavors of currant, cedar, chocolate and tobacco. The wine's subtle sweetness, suave tannins and sneaky persistence convey an impression of very regular ripeness.
