2009 Château Palmer, Cru Classé Margaux
According to Thomas Duroux of Château Palmer, 2009 was a vintage made by the terroir rather than the climate as in 2005. This is a compelling blend of 41% Cabernet Sauvignon, 52% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot. Whilst the colour is very deep, it is the soaring nose that makes the biggest impression. This is a wine of real volume and shows how well Merlot performed in the 2009 vintage when handled properly. Sweet and opulent, yet the fresh acidity adds a vibrant nature. This is creamy and very long with a tremendous subtle spice finish. Very impressive and must rank as one of the finest Palmers of recent years.
