2010 Palmer, Margaux 2020 Ex-Château Release 3-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1499973 98 points Decanter

Outer quote mark One of the great years of Bordeaux now at 10 years old and showing why this is such an unusual vintage in terms of the depth of structure and muscular concentration that was achieved (in fact I am upping the drinking window from the last time I tasted this, as there is such a pulse of life and grip that shows no signs of going anywhere). The initial layers are starting to be peeled back, but this retains primary black and blue fruits that are still full of flesh, baked earth, tons of liquorice and black chocolate with a grippy tannic structure, fresh acidities and a serious attitude. Brilliant stuff, that is clearly going to power on for decades. (JA) Inner quote mark (6/2020)

98 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A purity of fruit here with plum and dark chocolate undertones. Spices and treacle tart as well. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a long, long finish. Very fine indeed. Fit, fruity and reserved. Superb. Inner quote mark (2/2013)

97 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark While outwardly this wine is generous and opulent with great juicy sweetness, the core is structured and powerful. The wine is concentrated and complex, with dark tannins and a brooding, dense texture. This is a wine with a long-lived future. *Cellar Selection* (RV) Inner quote mark (3/2013)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep garnet in color, the 2010 Palmer rolls out of the glass with warm cassis, baked plums and boysenberries scents plus hints of candied violets, star anise and dried bay leaves. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is generously fruited, with a firm backbone of grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long. (LPB) 96+ Inner quote mark (3/2020)

96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Exotic, expressive nose offers blueberry, black cherry, violet, bitter chocolate, licorice, smoke and spices, with a subtle leather nuance in the deep background. The tightly coiled, penetrating palate offers uncanny density without weight, with dark berry and floral flavors enlivened by deep minerality. A wine of outstanding clarity, energy and class. The extremely long, mounting finish displays serious, ripe tannins that reach the incisors, and great clinging minerality and verve. This extraordinary young Palmer should go on for decades. (ST) 96+ Inner quote mark (7/2013)

96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2010 Palmer has an outgoing, intense and multifaceted bouquet with black cherries, boysenberry, crushed violets and hints of cassis - your quintessential Margaux turned up to eleven. The palate is medium-bodied with very supple tannins and a fine bead of acidity. Headier than its Margaux peers, it builds in the mouth with a complex, marine-tinged finish with cracked black pepper lingering on the aftertaste. This is an outstanding Palmer but it needs more time in bottle. (NM) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This is riveting, with terrific tarry grip coursing underneath layers of smoldering bay leaf, warm plum confiture, freshly brewed espresso, dark cassis and well-steeped black tea. The charcoal and tobacco backdrop is gorgeous and should move forward through the core of fruit over time. Be patient though, as the structure is ironclad. This will really be electric once mature. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2013)
