2010 Chateau Palmer, Margaux, France

A FEELING OF FULFILMENT.

We find ourselves intimidated by this monumental wine. Rarely have the grapes given us so much pleasure and delight. Complexity, depth, and an enchanting mouthfeel are the main characteristics of this immense vintage. The year 2010 will go down in history…

2010 is a heavenly vintage. In terms of quality, it benefited from exceptionally favorable weather. After a late start to the growing season that protected the vines from spring frosts, budding took place evenly in April. By late May, the quality potential also proved to be excellent. Fertilization was greatly hampered by a cold, wet period in June that caused an uneven spread of flowering and led to a significant amount of coulure, dashing hopes of a large crop. July was particularly warm, eliminating any heterogeneity in the vines after flowering, while the initial ripening occurred quickly. This beautiful weather lasted without interruption until the end of the harvest. The 2010 vintage was also characterized by a lack of water, which continued throughout the summer. The result was very small berries with surprisingly rich aromas and the retention of a certain acidity. Some welcome rain in the second week of September accelerated the ripening of the skins. In these favorable conditions, we were able to take our time and pick each plot at peak ripeness. The harvest was the longest in Château Palmer’s recent history. The precise choice of ripeness and finely controlled extractions enabled us to tame the strength and power of this vintage. 2010 is like a finely cut diamond that, over time, will fully express the delicacy of Château Palmer’s terroir.

( Rating: 96+ ). Deep garnet in color, the 2010 Palmer rolls out of the glass with warm cassis, baked plums and boysenberry 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. Reviewed by: Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Issue date: March 2020.
