Estate Notes

Château Palmer 2004 is a complex and powerful Margaux and one of the wines of the vintage.

Palmer is a quintessentially beautiful château sited on the outskirts of the village of Margaux. It is named after the Englishman, Major-general Charles Palmer, who settled in Bordeaux in the early 19th century after the Napoleonic wars, and it is now under the control of Franck Mähler-Besse, the son of a Dutch immigrant.

Reviews

“This stunning wine is one of the vintage’s great successes. Administrator Thomas Duroux has fashioned a modern day version of Palmer’s brilliant 1966. Displaying a rare combination of power and elegance, this dense purple-colored offering exhibits notes of blackberries, truffles, flowers, incense, and camphor. Long, classic, and medium to full-bodied with stunning texture and richness, this superb effort is a candidate for the finest Margaux of the vintage." Robert Parker

“Deep red. Rich aromas of plum, redcurrant, chocolate and smoke. Sweet, lush and smooth, with a wonderfully fine-grained texture for the year. Highly expressive flavors of currant, cedar, chocolate and tobacco. The wine's subtle sweetness, suave tannins and sneaky persistence convey an impression of very regular ripeness." Stephen Tanzer
