Intense color, cedary undertones, ripe berries, fine body; elegant, creamy texture for the vintage, but not as precise in the finish as Segla. Well-made Palmer but not, for the moment, a great one. Perhaps some Petit Verdot integration not yet perfectly balanced with the rest.

Sweet, early bouquet of cassis and cedar; very nicely balanced, gently fleshy, classy wine, with a very fine, dry tannin; long, easy, graceful, and fleshy core within the firmly tannic frame; ripe, fresh, spicily complex and with a long, aromatic finish. Complete but with an austerity suggesting it needs another 8–10 years in bottle at least. 2018–30+.

Brilliant and classy texture, red-fruit aromas, soft and aristocratic texture and body, fresh and long. Palmer has made even better since this vintage, but it is undoubtedly the best Margaux of this tasting.
