Reviews

“The 2010 displays loads of chocolaty espresso notes, with plenty of punch, glycerin and unctuosity as well as some tannin like its bigger sister...There’s no question that Thomas Duroux and the staff at Palmer are producing wines of first-growth quality, and have been for nearly a decade.” Robert Parker

“Bright ruby-red. The nose offers a mix of decadent plum, green pepper and fresh herbs. On the palate, dark cherry and spice flavors are lifted by peppery herbs and flowers and framed by solid acidity.” Stephen Tanzer
