Chateau Palmer Margaux 2004


There is very little doubt that Chateau Palmer is one of the best producers of wine in the world. The famous Margaux winery of rich history was one famous purchased by the Pereire brothers, the rivals of the Rothschild Family in 1853. Because of the purchase so close to the the 1855 classification, they weren’t able to bring their chateau to a First Growth level in time and as such we’re placed in the Third Growths.

Their 2004 flagship wine is an absolute beauty in what is now twenty years after the wine’s release. It shows so much- elegance, density and finesse. It’s so perfectly structured– finely woven tannins perfectly blend together. A Cab/Merlot dominant blend that just speaks crazy loud volumes. One of the best of the best.

95 Points, Decanter
A more classic year than the 2003 or 2005 on either side, really showing beautifully right now, still young but full of promise, tension and juice. This is an extremely elegant, balanced Palmer, with dark berry fruits, cassis and blackberry, touch of campfire smoke, salinity and plenty of juice running through the muscular tannins. Plays with you on the finish, stretching out its flavours, salivating, totally gorgeous, suprisingly so for a vintage that can get overlooked. One that you could happily open now, or hold for another decade or more. Harvest September 27 to October 12, 60% new oak. Thomas Duroux’s first vintage as director.

94+ Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
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.
