2000 Palmer Bordeaux Blend - France - Bordeaux - Margaux - Red - Third Growth

France - Bordeaux - Margaux

Red Bordeaux Blend - Third Growth
Producer Notes

Although Palmer stands among ten Third Growth properties located in Margaux, its primary rival for best of appellation comes from the first growth estate Chateau Margaux. Palmer's original name was Chateau de Gascq, but was changed to its owner's namesake after its purchase by General Charles Palmer in 1814. The current owners are the... More »

($145-$189) Good full ruby-red. Knockout nose combines blackberry, violet, espresso, graphite and licorice. Then impressively sweet in the mouth, even slightly roasted; comes across as rather aggressive following the leaner, high-pitched 2002. Extremely rich, full Palmer but a bit brutal today, and not currently showing the perfume it displayed from barrel. The wine's substantial but ripe tannins call for at least six or seven years of bottle aging.

Dark crimson. Dusty nose with real energy - one of the most exciting wines so far in this respect! But with a Margaux lightness of touch. I really like this even if it's not super snazzy.

One of the sexiest wines for drinking now and over the next 10-15 years is undoubtedly the 2000 Palmer. A blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, the wine has an almost exotic floral nose, soft, undulating tannins, and tremendous opulence and flesh, with a full-bodied mouthfeel, silky tannins, and loads of floral notes intermixed with blue and black fruits as well as hints of smoke and incense in its complex aromatics. This wine is drinking beautifully and should continue to do so for up to two more decades.

This takes time to unwind, but then it explodes with fruit and powerful, yet silky tannins. Perfumed and rich, with berry, cherry and tobacco character. Full-bodied, with super-well-integrated tannins and a reduced, refined palate structure. It's compacted and powerful. Very racy wine.

I tend to side with Mr. Parker on this one as per description. I am giving it 97 points. I do not care what any other score is, for this is Palmer's best ever period.

Full colour. This is very lovely. Ripe and rich, velvety and harmonious, complex and profound on the nose. Fullish body. Bery good grip. Very good tannins. Backward. Very, very elegant, complex flavours. Very complex and harmonious. Lovely long finish. (Score is actually 18.5 out of 20.)

The wine?s cepage is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and 5% Cabernet Franc. A big but focused superlative wine. This is what classified growth Bordeaux is all about. The nose offers up paper, dark fruits, and muted oak. Huge mouth staining fruit and oak. Rather monolithic at present but what potential. The wine is beautifully balanced and shows incredible length in its finish. Needs at least 15 years to shine.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
