Chateau Palmer 2010 is a thrilling wine that is a true success of the appellation of Margaux. The blend is composed of 54% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot creating an incredibly complex combination of aromas and flavors. The robe is a deep, rich purple color. The nose is dominated by blackcurrant, plum and spice with hints of violet. In the mouth it is full bodied and incredibly powerful. Its concentrated flavors linger on the palate. This wine deserves at least 10 year of aging.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted at the Château Palmer vertical in London, the estate team regard the 2010 Château Palmer as their best since the 1983. This showing did nothing to suggest otherwise. It offers stunning precision on the nose: incredibly fresh and vibrant with the same spine-tingling level of mineralité as the 2005. What they both share is a Pauillac-like graphite seam that runs from start to finish. Like the 2005, there is a beguiling symmetry here, more focused and linear than the sumptuous 2009, yet with sensational length that makes you wonder what on Earth it will taste like in another 10-15 years. I would keep this in your cellar for another decade at least and it may well merit a higher score down the line. Tasted May 2015.
