Château Palmer, 3ème cru classé 2010

RRP £333.60

The second vintage of Palmer with some biodynamic experimentation, ultimately leading to its full certification in 2017. The 2010 is enigmatic, brooding, spellbinding. There’s a perfume that’s more refined, elegant and layered than any wine yet. You want to savour it, and then you want to dive in. Everything the nose promised you get: a complex yet subtle flavour profile, a caressing yet firm structure. There’s a quiet, dreamy poise to this wine. The wood will certainly integrate with more time – because this needs lots of time.
